 The Browns might be for real. So might the Bills.
Or neither of them should be believed.
Hard to tell, and regardless of their credentials, Cleveland and Buffalo enter Thursday night's game with 2-2 records and off impressive victories. The Browns (No. 19 in the AP Pro32) beat division favorite Cincinnati last Sunday, while the Bills (No. 20, AP Pro32) stunned defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore.
Cleveland - which got both of its victories after trading away its best offensive player, running back Trent Richardson - is a 4 1/2-point favorite. Credit a stingy defense that ranks third overall for the Browns' turnaround.
The Browns are allowing just 2.9 yards per carry, a league low.
``No one is going to be able to run on us this year,'' linebacker D'Qwell Jackson said. ``As long as we stay healthy and continue to grind the tape out and do what we need to do on Sunday, I don't think anyone will be able to run on us.''
Buffalo might not be the best test. Starter C.J. Spiller is battling an ankle problem and fellow running back Fred Jackson has a knee injury.
That should be enough to give Cleveland a third straight victory.
