The Cleveland Browns restored order to the universe with a Johnny Manziel-led victory over the Tennessee Titans. Of course Mike Pettine went and named Josh McCown, but this is already too much serious football talk. We've got the Browns Friday Fumble, which is a less "X's and O's" look at the Cleveland Browns upcoming matchups.

Make sure you listen in because the podcast has its first big, exclusive guest. Dave and Dylan got an exclusive interview with the Oakland Raiders groundskeeper in charge of getting the field ready every week.
