  • After 3 More Turnovers, Hue Jackson Wonders If DeShone Kizer Will Ever ‘Get It’After 3 More Turnovers, Hue Jackson Wonders If DeShone Kizer Will Ever ‘Get It’

    CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – In case ‘The Season of Misery’ didn’t have enough intrigue for you, head coach Hue Jackson is poised to do his best to provide it in case you might be bored with the whole winless season thing. How about another quarterback change? It’s on the table after DeShone Kizer helped the Browns net 0 yards in the first quarter, increased his league-leading interception total by 2 to 19 and was strip-sacked resulting in a touchdown during Sunday’s 27-10 loss to the former Cleveland Browns AKA, Baltimore Ravens. “We have to get our quarterback who is playing for us to quit turning the ball over,” Jackson said. “It is just that simple.” Now the rookie from Notre Dame could be benched, again, according to Jackson after he was asked if Kizer is capable of finishing the season as the starter. “I think he can,” Jackson responded. “Obviously, I’m going to watch the tape and make the best decision for our football team because we are still trying to win. We are not here just trying to get through the season. I don’t look at it like that and I’m not going to let our players look at it like that. We are trying to win. “If the best decision is to move forward in a different direction, we will. At the same time, I want him to finish this if he can. We will see.” Kizer’s worst mistake of the day came with 11:07 left in the fourth quarter when he inexplicably threw into triple coverage and was intercepted by Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr in the back of the endzone. It was the ninth red zone turnover of the season for the Browns. “He has some work to do,” Jackson said when asked if Kizer will ever ‘get it.’ “I think that is a fair question if he will ever get it. I think he will, but he has to keep working. Those are the things that he has to really fight against. That is one of the areas of the field where there have been some struggles, but there has also been some improvement. You want to keep it going that way. Today we took a step back.” Kizer was unaware of Jackson’s comments when he was asked about them after the game. “He has not shared that with me,” Kizer said. “When you go out and you [have] the performance that I had, I am sure you have to go back and reevaluate the quarterback position.” Kizer started 3-7 for -12 yards with an interception and a rating of 10.7 after 1 quarter and his first pass for positive yardage didn’t come until 2:35 was left in the first half – a 14-yard completion to Josh Gordon. “These are all trials and tribulations that will lead to my success in the future,” Kizer said. Kizer, who finished the afternoon 20 of 37 for 146 yards, 2 interceptions, a fumble and a rating of 41.0, conceded that he might have benefited by having a veteran quarterback mentor him this year. “The situation is one where Coach Jackson and the front office decided that I was the best option to go out there and play in games and learn from live reps,” Kizer said. “Through that position, we’re here. We are 0-14. Having a lot of ups and downs, and I am taking on a lot of experiences.” Kizer would like to finish the season as the starter for the final 2 games in Chicago on Christmas eve and then Pittsburgh on New Years eve. “I signed up for 16 games this year with the potential to go up to the playoffs,” Kizer said. “With that being said, it is on me to make sure that I give my complete effort and continue to push as far as I can to finish out the season. We have two opportunities in front of us to go out and get a couple of wins to create some momentum going into the offseason.” Considering where the Browns are, just 2 losses away from an imperfect season, does it really even matter if Kizer gets benched? The answer to that one is pretty simple too.

  • In special shoes, LeBron’s triple-double leads Cavs past WizIn special shoes, LeBron’s triple-double leads Cavs past Wiz

    WASHINGTON (AP) — LeBron James played the first half wearing a pair of shoes — one black, one white — reading “equality” in gold capital letters and finished with 20 points, 15 assists and 12 rebounds to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers past the Washington Wizards 106-99 on Sunday night for their 18th victory in 19 games. James had his fourth triple-double in the past five games despite being called for four fouls in the final quarter. Kevin Love added 25 points and nine rebounds for the Cavs. Bradley Beal led Washington with 27 points, and John Wall had 15 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes in his third game back after missing nine with an injured left knee. In a matchup of Eastern Conference division leaders, neither team led by more than seven until Wall turned the ball over, leading to a fast break for James, who was fouled at the other end and completed the three-point play for a 103-94 lead. The last time these teams played, at Washington on Nov. 3, Cleveland won thanks to 57 points from James. That prompted Wizards coach Scott Brooks to joke before tipoff Sunday both that holding the four-time league MVP to “56 would be pretty good tonight” and “I have a lot of respect for Coach (Tyronn) Lue, but I think he’s making a bad decision if he doesn’t sit LeBron tonight. Back-to-back games, right? Our fans saw 57. They don’t need to see any more.” James did not carry that much of a scoring load this time, but he did a bit of everything. He also made his statement with his sneakers, wearing that pair for the first half, before switching gear at halftime. He sported a pair of black shoes with “equality” written on them for Cleveland’s opening game of the season. If it seems as if James climbs up some career list each and every night, well, that’s because he pretty much does. This time, he overtook Hakeem Olajuwon for ninth-most made field goals in NBA history and tied Nick Van Exel for 24th-most 3-pointers. James made only 4 of 12 shots in the first half for nine points, but it was his 3 with 1.1 seconds remaining that made it 60-all at the break. Wall’s 3 shortly before that moved him up to No. 5 on Washington’s franchise scoring list. He began the night at No. 7, but surpassed Phil Chenier and Gus Johnson in the second quarter. The game was still tied heading into the fourth period, at 83-all. TIP-INS Cavaliers: G Dwyane Wade was rested on the second half of a back-to-back. … Finished with 24 assists, ending their streak of three consecutive games with at least 30. … Cleveland made 14 3-pointers, its 20th game in a row with at least 10. … The Cavs scored at least 100 points for the 24th straight game. Wizards: F Otto Porter Jr. sat out with an injured right hip. … His replacement in the starting lineup, Kelly Oubre Jr., had 11 points and eight rebounds. TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES There were three technical fouls handed out in the first 10 minutes, one apiece to Cleveland G J.R. Smith, Washington F Markieff Morris and Brooks. BROOKS AND ‘BIG Z’ Brooks was by turns earnest, nostalgic and funny while recalling former Cavs teammate Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who will receive a lifetime achievement award during the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards Show next month. “He took me in. I stayed with him for two months. A lot of interesting nights,” Brooks said with a chuckle. “What a great sense of humor. … I don’t know why in the world did the state of Ohio give him a driver’s license. I mean, it was an adventure going to dinner every night. … Just a horrible driver, but a great teammate. One of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.” UP NEXT: Cavaliers: At Milwaukee on Tuesday night. The Cavs have beaten the Bucks the last five times they’ve played. Wizards: Host New Orleans on Tuesday night. More on the Cavs here.

  • Patriots Rally Behind Rob Gronkowski, Edge Steelers In Thriller 27-24Patriots Rally Behind Rob Gronkowski, Edge Steelers In Thriller 27-24

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski did it to the Pittsburgh Steelers again. One questionable decision by Ben Roethlisberger helped. Brady fed Gronkowski repeatedly to set up Dion Lewis’ go-ahead 8-yard touchdown with 56 seconds remaining and Roethlisberger was intercepted in the end zone with 5 seconds left as the New England Patriots rallied to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-24 on Sunday. The Patriots (11-3) gained the inside track for homefield advantage in the AFC playoffs by ending Pittsburgh’s eight-game winning streak. Brady threw for 298 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Gronkowski, fresh off a one-game suspension, finished with nine receptions for 168 yards, including four on the game-winning drive. It briefly looked like it wouldn’t be enough. The Steelers (11-3), who played most of the game without injured wide receiver Antonio Brown, appeared to take the lead when Roethlisberger connected with tight end Jesse James for a 10-yard touchdown with 28 seconds to left. The play was overturned on review, with official Tony Corrente saying the ball did not “survive” the completion of the catch. Roethlisberger hit Darrius Heyward-Bey for a short gain but stayed in bounds. With the clock running and no timeouts left, Roethlisberger hurried to the line. Rather than spike it to set up a short kick that would have sent the game to overtime, Roethlisberger tried to win it. Instead, he lost it. His pass to Eli Rogers was batted into the air, and New England safety Duron Harmon came down with it. One kneel down later the Patriots had their fifth straight victory over the Steelers. Roethlisberger completed 22 of 30 for 281 yards with two touchdowns and the pick. Le’Veon Bell ran for 117 yards and added another 48 receiving as Pittsburgh hung in there even with Brown, the NFL’s leading receiver, in a hospital having his left calf injury examined. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin hardly downplayed the pregame hype, welcoming the moment and the pressure that comes along with it even while facing an opponent that he’s beaten just twice during his 11-year tenure and never in a game of true consequence, including a blowout loss in the AFC championship game 11 months ago. Pittsburgh received an early emotional jolt when cameras cut to injured linebacker Ryan Shazier sitting in a private box less than two weeks removed from spinal stabilization surgery. The crowd at rainy Heinz Field roared as Shazier, who appeared to be seated, waved a Terrible Towe l. The 25-year-old is recovering from spinal stabilization surgery on Dec. 6, two days after leaving a Monday night victory over Cincinnati on a stretcher following a routine hit on Bengals wide receiver Josh Malone. The emotional boost of Shazier’s surprise cameo faded quickly. Brady took a snap, and the reality the Steelers face without their most irreplaceable defensive player set in. Brady took the Patriots right down the field, connecting with Cooks for a 43-yard gain that set up Rex Burkhead’s 1-yard touchdown. The Steelers answered immediately on an 18-yard lob from Roethlisberger to Eli Rogers. Pittsburgh took its first lead over the Patriots since 2011 early in the second quarter on a Chris Boswell field goal, one that came at a possibly heavy price. Brown left in obvious pain after getting his left leg tangled up with a pair of New England defenders. He was helped to the medical tent then taken to a hospital for further examination. Still, Pittsburgh hung around thanks to the depth they didn’t have while getting rolled by New England the last time the AFC superpowers met. Bryant, suspended all of last season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, made a pretty one-handed touchdown catch late in the first half that put Pittsburgh up 17-10 at the break. Bell, limited to just 11 snaps in Foxborough last January, churned up clock and yards. Smith-Schuster, the ebullient rookie, caught six passes for 114 yards, including a 69-yard catch-and-run that put the Steelers in position to at least tie it. Roethlisberger opted to go for the wind instead, a decision now that could have ramifications in January. UP NEXT New England: Host Buffalo on Christmas Eve. The Patriots handled the Bills 23-3 in the first meeting of the season earlier this month in Buffalo. Pittsburgh: Visits Houston on Christmas Day. (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.

  • Cleveland fire station heavily damaged after being hit by two carsCleveland fire station heavily damaged after being hit by two cars

    CLEVELAND -  A chain reaction accident resulted in two cars smashing into a Cleveland fire station Sunday evening. Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment At around 5:45 p.m., an Equinox driving on Archwood Avenue hit a Jetta, which then collided with a Buick. The Buick was able to drive safely to a nearby parking lot. The Jetta was pushed through a traffic light at Pearl Road, and into the front door of Cleveland Fire Station 20, hitting a fire truck. As the firefighters ran outside to see what was happening, the Equinox smashed through the engine apparatus door into the vehicle bay of the station. Cleveland Fire's Public Information Officer Mike Norman tells Fox 8 that the doors of the station are "totaled." The drivers of the cars, all male, were taken to hospitals by Cleveland EMS. Their injuries are all minor. No firefighters were injured, and they will be able to make runs because the station is built so that trucks can leave from either side. This station was, oddly enough, hit by another car just about a month ago, but on the other side of the station that Sunday's accident.

  • As Bengals Rumors Swirl, Hue Jackson Says He’s Committed To Browns: ‘It Can’t Get Much Worse’As Bengals Rumors Swirl, Hue Jackson Says He’s Committed To Browns: ‘It Can’t Get Much Worse’

    CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – “Not a good day at the office.” Those were the first 6 words to come out of Browns head coach Hue Jackson’s mouth as he began his postgame press conference following a 27-10 drubbing courtesy of the Baltimore Ravens. He would say many, many more as he tried to explain the 14th loss of the season, which concluded the second winless regular season at home in team history and made the Browns the first team in league history to be 0-14 in consecutive seasons. “I apologize to our fans that we were not able to do that – to get them a victory in our stadium,” Jackson said. “Hopefully, this is the end of all that. I hope it is. I am not going to make any guarantees that it is because you never know – you never know what happens year to year – but at the same time, it can’t get much worse than this, true? “It can’t. Let’s just be honest. It can’t get much worse than what it is.” Oh, Hue. You coach the Browns and it can always get worse. Under his watch, it has, which he acknowledged Sunday. “Obviously, it is not as good as when I found it,” Jackson said. “At that time, that was a 3-13 football team when I signed up. That is not where we are right now. We are not where we need to be. I see some things that we can build on, but I see some things that we have to really fix as we continue to move forward.” So what now? Owner Jimmy Haslam has declared multiple times that Jackson will be the coach in 2018. But how do you bring back an at-best 3-29 or at worst 1-31 head coach for a third season? Haslam’s problem is self created. By firing Pat Shurmur, then Rob Chudzinski and then Mike Pettine – all since January, 2013 – he’s painted himself into a corner. It was just 23 months ago that Jackson walked into the Browns’ facility all but riding on a white stallion and here we are asking legitimate questions about whether or not he should stay – or will stay. The losses, which are piling up in historic fashion, are starting to take their toll on Jackson. “I am not going to lie to you. I am not coping with this very well,” Jackson said. “I haven’t for 2 years. I haven’t been in this situation. I am just being honest with you. It is not something I want to deal with. It is not something that I think is fair to anybody, not just myself but the coaching staff, the players, our fans, everybody. We have to fix this.” Because of Jackson’s existing relationships with the Bengals organization, he has been tied to Cincinnati as a potential replacement for Marvin Lewis from the day he took the Browns job. With the news that Lewis would step away after this season breaking Sunday morning, Jackson was asked about those rumors and whether or not he’d entertain the thought of bailing on the Browns. “I have kind of known about Marvin,” Jackson said. “Obviously, we all know that Marvin is a close friend, but trust me, I’m not running from this. I have never gone any place and left it worse than when I found it. I’m not going to run from this. I’m going to be here and I need to get this fixed as fast as I can because I think it is important. It is important to me to help these players, help this organization and this city become what I believe we can become. I have too many things going on here. I can’t worry about what is happening in Cincinnati.” A strong statement from Jackson but let’s not be fooled. At 1-29 and questions about whether or not new GM John Dorsey even wants to entertain the thought of bringing Jackson back for a third year despite statements made by Haslam, the Bengals could provide the best escape route for everyone involved. “This doesn’t define me,” Jackson said of his record. “I get all this. ‘Hue, this is your record. This is how it works.’ I got that, but this will not define me as a football coach. I know what is here. I know how we got here. I see it. We all do. What we have to do is fix it. Talking about it is not going to do anything. The record is what it is.”

  • Pentagon program spent millions investigating UFOs: ReportsPentagon program spent millions investigating UFOs: Reports

    NEW YORK – Beyond preparing for the next field of battle, or advancing a massive arsenal that includes nuclear weapons, the Pentagon has also researched the possible existence of UFOs. The New York Times reported Saturday on the once completely classified project that began because of the intense interest in the subject by former Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada. According to the Times, the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program was launched in 2007 after the Nevada Democrat spoke to his longtime friend, Robert Bigelow, the billionaire founder of an aerospace company. Bigelow has spoken about his belief in UFOs visiting the United States as well as the existence of aliens. Among the anomalies the program studied, the paper said, were video and audio recordings of aerial encounters by military pilots and unknown objects, as well as interviews with people who said they had experienced physical encounters with such objects. In one instance, the program looked at video footage of a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet surrounded by a glowing object of unknown origin traveling at a high rate of speed in a location that officials declined to identify, the paper said. The Pentagon says the program has since been shuttered. “The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ended in the 2012 timeframe,” Pentagon spokesman Tom Crosson told CNN. “It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the DoD to make a change.” But according to the Times, certain aspects of the program still exist with officials from the program continuing to investigate encounters brought to them by service members, while these officials still carry out their other duties within the Defense Department. The former director of the program told the paper that he worked with officials from the Navy and CIA from his office in the Pentagon until this past October, when he resigned in protest. He said a replacement had been named, but he declined to identify them. Reid, the Times says, was also supported in his efforts to fund the program by the late Sens. Ted Stevens of Alaska, Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, and John Glenn of Ohio, the first American to orbit the Earth, who told Reid the federal government should take a serious look at UFOs. And working to keep a program that he was sure would draw scrutiny from others, Reid said he, Stevens and Inouye made sure there was never any public debate about the program on the Senate floor during budget debates. “This was so-called black money,” Reid told the Times regarding the Defense Department budget for classified programs.

  • McCain treated for viral infection, returns home to ArizonaMcCain treated for viral infection, returns home to Arizona

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. John McCain has returned home to Arizona after being hospitalized for a viral infection while battling brain cancer and will miss a crucial Senate vote on the GOP tax package, his office said Sunday. The 81-year-old senator will undergo physical therapy and rehabilitation at the Mayo Clinic in the state after spending several days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland. In a brief statement, the office provided an assessment from Dr. Mark Gilbert, chief of neuro-oncology at the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute. “Senator McCain has responded well to treatment he received at Walter Reed Medical Center for a viral infection and continues to improve,” Gilbert said. “An evaluation of his underlying cancer shows he is responding positively to ongoing treatment.” McCain expressed appreciation for his care and the outpouring of support and, according to his office, “looks forward to returning to Washington in January.” Now in his sixth Senate term, McCain, 81, underwent surgery in mid-July to remove a 2-inch (51-millimeter) blood clot in his brain after being diagnosed with glioblastoma. A statement issued last Wednesday by the senator’s office said he was at Walter Reed receiving treatment for the “normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy.” His daughter Meghan McCain tweeted Sunday: “My father is doing well and we are all looking forward to spending Christmas together in Arizona.” Republicans hold a slim 52-48 majority in the Senate, and McCain and Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., missed votes last week. The 80-year-old Cochran had a non-melanoma lesion removed from his nose earlier this week. He is expected to vote this coming week on the tax bill. Republicans secured the support of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker last Friday. They likely will pass the bill by a narrow margin in the face of unified Democratic opposition. As a backstop, Vice President Mike Pence would be available to break a tie. After his summer surgery, McCain rebounded quickly, returning to Washington and entering the Senate on July 25 to a standing ovation from his colleagues. In a dramatic turn, he cast a deciding vote against the Republican health care bill — a move that drew the wrath of Trump and conservatives. McCain’s vote scuttled the seven-year effort by the GOP to dismantle much of President Barack Obama’s health care law. But McCain’s condition has appeared to worsen in recent weeks. He suffered a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon, forcing him to wear a walking brace. McCain eventually began using a wheelchair, and members of his staff pushed him where he needed to go. As a Navy pilot, McCain lived through a July 1967 fire that killed 134 sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal in the Gulf of Tonkin during the Vietnam War. The following October, his plane was shot down during a bombing mission over Hanoi. He spent more than five years as a prisoner of war. McCain also has survived several bouts with melanoma, a dangerous skin cancer.

  • Power outage cripples Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airportPower outage cripples Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport

    ATLANTA –  A power outage at the world’s busiest airport left thousands of passengers stranded in dark terminals and in planes sitting on the tarmac, amid a nationwide ground stop. Incoming and outgoing flights at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport were halted indefinitely as crews worked to restore power, leading to hundreds of flight delays and cancellations. Atlanta is the heart of the US air transport system, and what happens there has the potential to ripple through the country. Flights at Cleveland Hopkins are being affected by the outage. You can click here to check the status of flights arriving and departing Cleveland. Here are the latest developments: – More than 600 flights to and from Atlanta have been canceled, including 350 departures, according to Flightradar24. – More than 450 Delta mainline and regional flights have been canceled. – Southwest Airlines has canceled all operations in and out of Atlanta. – Flights headed to Atlanta are being held on the ground at their departure airport. – Inbound flights to Atlanta are being diverted, US Customs and Border Protection said. – Departures from the airport are delayed because electronic equipment is not working in the terminals, the FAA said. – The cause of the incident is under investigation. The outage cut power in the terminals, leaving passengers stranded in the dark as they stood in line at gates and security checkpoints. People used flashlights on their phones to see where they were going, said passenger Heather Kerwin, an Atlanta resident. “There were a few emergency lights on, but it was really dark — felt totally apocalyptic,” she said. “I decided to get the hell out of there.” Brittny Dettro said she was waiting to board a flight from Atlanta to Milwaukee when the power went out in Terminal B. She shot this image at 1:10 p.m. ET. The outage left passengers sitting in planes on the tarmac for hours. Jodi Green’s Delta flight from the Bahamas landed at 1:15 p.m. ET Sunday. As of 4 p.m. she was still on the plane. The ground stop led Southwest Airlines to cancel all operations in and out of Atlanta for the rest of the day, spokesman Brian Parrish said. Customers are being offered re-bookings without fare differences, he said. Delta canceled more than 450 Delta mainline and regional flights as a result of the ground stop, the airline said in a statement. Delta is working to deplane customers from aircrafts that have not been able to park at a gate due to the outage. Georgia Power has confirmed they have crews in the field working to determine the cause of the problem. The outage affects all airport operations, spokesman Reese McCranie said. The airport is currently working with Georgia Power to figure out the cause of the outage, he said. Atlanta is the largest hub for Delta Air Lines. The airline told passengers to check the status of their flights. “Delta is aware of a power outage at the Atlanta Airport affecting airport concourses and terminal buildings,” spokesman Michael Thomas told CNN. “Flight disruptions are expected as a result and Delta customers are encouraged check the status of their flight via the Fly Delta Mobile App or Delta.com. More updates to follow.” Flights at Cleveland Hopkins are being affected by the outage. You can click here to check the status of flights arriving and departing Cleveland.

  • Ravens stay in playoff picture, down winless Browns 27-10Ravens stay in playoff picture, down winless Browns 27-10

    CLEVELAND (AP) — Joe Flacco threw a touchdown pass, ran for a score and beat Cleveland again as the Baltimore Ravens stayed on track for the AFC playoffs with a 27-10 win Sunday over the Browns, now two losses from becoming the NFL’s second 0-16 team. Flacco scored on a 2-yard run and threw a 33-yard TD pass to Benjamin Watson as the Ravens (8-6) took control with two touchdowns in the final 3:01 of the first half. Defensive tackle Brandon Williams recovered a fumble and rolled in for a TD in third quarter to put the Ravens up 24-10. The Browns (0-14) went 0-8 at home — 0-7 in Cleveland, 0-1 in London — for the second time and must win at either Chicago or Pittsburgh to avoid joining the 2008 Detroit Lions in the notorious 0-16 club. Last season, the Browns avoided infamy by winning their final home game and finishing 1-15. Cleveland is 1-29 in two seasons under coach Hue Jackson, who is expected to be back despite his .033 winning percentage. Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer threw two more interceptions, the last into a group of defenders in the fourth quarter. Ravens coach John Harbaugh wasn’t concerned about his team overlooking the Browns with so much on the line. Baltimore was coming off a last-second, 39-38 loss at Pittsburgh last week, and while the Ravens weren’t at their best, they didn’t do anything to help Cleveland. With victories at home over Indianapolis and Cincinnati in its last two games, the Ravens will return to the postseason after a two-year absence. Flacco completed 26 of 42 passes for 288 yards and improved to 17-2 in his career against Cleveland. With the Ravens leading 17-10, Baltimore’s defense put away the Browns. Kizer was stripped in the end zone by Za’Darius Smith and the loose ball was pounced on by Williams, who shimmied his 340-pound frame across the goal line. Later, Kizer forced a throw to the back of the end zone that could have been picked off by three Ravens. Cleveland was held to zero total yards in the first quarter, but the Browns went on a 96-yard drive — Isaiah Crowell ran for 59 on the first play — to take a 7-3 lead on Duke Johnson’s 12-yard run. After reaching the end zone, Johnson knelt with teammates before flashing “5-0” with his hands to salute Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier, who is recovering from back surgery. RAVENOUS RAVENS Baltimore has scored five defensive touchdowns. It’s also forced 33 takeaways — nine in two games against Cleveland. SUNDAY SCHOOL The Browns have lost 31 consecutive games on Sunday. QB CLASS Flacco’s .895 winning percentage against the Browns is the third best by an active quarterback against any opponent. Ben Roethlisberger is 21-2 (.913) against Cleveland and Tom Brady is 27-3 (.900) against Buffalo. HUE’S FUTURE Marvin Lewis’ imminent departure in Cincinnati has added a new wrinkle to Cleveland’s cloudy coaching situation. Although owner Jimmy Haslam has said Jackson will return in 2018, new general manager John Dorsey has left open the possibility of a coaching change. Dorsey ripped fired vice president of football operations Sashi Brown earlier this week, but sidestepped a question about Jackson’s future. INJURIES: Ravens: WR Jeremy Maclin injured his knee on the first series, returned briefly and then was held out. … S Chuck Clark sustained a head injury in the first quarter but returned after clearing concussion protocol. …DT Carl Davis left to be treated for a head injury in the second quarter. Browns: CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun (knee) missed his second straight game. … DT Danny Shelton sustained a lower right leg injury in the second half but returned. UP NEXT Ravens: Host Indianapolis on Sunday. Browns: Visit Chicago on Sunday.

  • The Good And Bad: 4 Turnovers Doom The 0-14 Browns In 27-10 Loss To RavensThe Good And Bad: 4 Turnovers Doom The 0-14 Browns In 27-10 Loss To Ravens

    CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Ravens marched closer to the playoffs while the Browns continue theirs towards infamy. For only the second time ever, the Browns went winless at home in the regular season – the first came in the 1999 expansion season – thanks to a 27-10 drubbing from the team that used to reside here pre-1996, the Baltimore Ravens. Rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer threw 2 interceptions and was strip-sacked for a touchdown in the loss. The Browns are the first team in NFL history to be 0-14 in back-to-back seasons. Here’s a look at the good and bad from loss No. 14 here in 2017. The Good – Linebacker Christian Kirksey saved a touchdown on Baltimore’s 13-play opening drive by deflecting a Joe Flacco pass into the end zone that fell just short of the grasp on cornerback Jason McCourty. The play, which came on third down, forced Justin Tucker and the Ravens to settle for a 31-yard field goal and a 3-0 lead. Kirksey finished with a game-high 13 tackles marking the fifth time he has registered double-digit tackles this season. – Ravens running back Alex Collins was denied twice form the 1-yard line in the second quarter on third- and fourth-and-goal. Defensive tackle Caleb Brantley and Kirksey teamed up for the stop on third down while linebacker James Burgess was credited with the stop on fourth down for a loss of 2. – On the very next play after the goal-line stand for the Browns, running back Isaiah Crowell ripped off a 59-yard run, his longest carry of the season. Duke Johnson capped the 5-play, 96-yard drive with a 12-yard TD run that saw him take a step to the right before bouncing it left and walking in to the endzone for a 7-3 lead with 8:12 to play in the half. The 96-yard TD drive was the longest for the Cleveland since a 98-yard TD drive in 2010 against Kansas City according to ProFootballReference.com. – Crowell and Johnson had strong afternoons in the loss. Crowell finished with 72 yards, aided by producing the longest offensive play of the season, which gave him his fifth 50-plus yard carry since 2015 – second most over that span in the league. In addition to the 12-yard TD run, Johnson added 5 catches for 40 yards. He leads the Browns this season in receptions (61) and receiving yards (537), while totaling 6 touchdowns (3 receiving, 3 rushing). Johnson is the first NFL running back to record 500 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons since Herschel Walker in 1986-88. Johnson is also the only NFL running back with at least 50 catches in each of the past 3 seasons. The Bad – After a strong performance last week, DeShone Kizer was due for a bad one. Kizer started 3-7 for -12 yards with an interception and a rating of 10.7 after 1 quarter. Eric Weddle picked him off to end their third offensive series and mark the fourth straight game that the Ravens’ safety picked off a Browns QB. Kizer’s first pass for positive yardage came with 2:35 left in the half – a 14-yard completion to Josh Gordon. In the second quarter he was 7-9 for 81 yards. Kizer threw into triple coverage and was intercepted by Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr in the back of the endzone with 11:07 left in the fourth quarter. Kizer finished 20 of 37 for 146 yards, 2 interceptions,a fumble and a 46.0 rating. – Duke Johnson was stripped by Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosely at their own 41 after a 9-yard catch-and-run and Anthony Levine scooped up the loose ball before losing 13 yards on the return. It didn’t matter because Baltimore needed 37 seconds and 3 plays to extend their advantage to 17-7 after Flacco hit tight end Benjamin Watson for a 33-yard touchdown with :59 to play. – The Ravens entered the game with 29 takeaways this season and they added 4 more to their total Sunday which they turned into 14 points. The third turnover came in the third quarter when Kizer was strip-sacked in the endzone by outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith and defensive tackle Brandon Williams fell on the loose ball on the goal line for the TD and a 24-10 lead with 7:06 left in the third quarter. Baltimore’s 5 defensive TDs in 2017 ties them with Detroit for second in NFL this season. – Hue Jackson is now 1-29 as the head coach of the Browns. Cleveland is 4-47 in their last 51, 15-63 since the start of the 2013 season and 20-74 since the start of the 2012 season. – Jan. 1, 2018 can’t get here fast enough.

  • California fire: Resident says neighborhood looks like ‘war zone’California fire: Resident says neighborhood looks like ‘war zone’

    Watch Video VENTURA, Calif.– Jeannette Frescas was not concerned about the Thomas Fire until the massive blaze reached her neighborhood in Ventura, California. “At midnight, I woke up with a flashlight in my face,” Frescas told CNN affiliate KEYT. “I looked out my window and there were flames that were like, a hundred feet, all around us.” Like many residents, Frescas was caught off guard by the fire that has roared across Southern California for 13 days. She’s one of tens of thousands of residents who piled into cars and fled as ferocious winds drove the third-largest blaze in modern state history through Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. “What was once a paradise was like a war zone,” Frescas said of her apartment complex that was destroyed by the blaze. Ventura resident Patricia Rye woke up to her son-in-law pounding on her door. She didn’t get a chance to pack any valuables, and fled her home of 17 years in the dead of the night. “I didn’t have time to take anything,” Rye told the affiliate. “My wallet, or any of my personal things. I literally left with the clothes on my back. If I had been thinking I would have got into my car, but I wasn’t thinking so my car was there.” Thousands of Santa Barbara residents threatened by the blaze are under mandatory and voluntary evacuations while others like Frescas were allowed back in their homes or what was left of them. The fire is so massive that more than 8,400 firefighters are working around the clock to save lives and contain it. It’s bigger in acreage than New York City, and has turned neighborhoods to piles of soot and concrete as it churns through the area. More stories on the wildfires here Latest developments • Cause of death: Firefighter Cory David Iverson, 32, died of “thermal injuries and smoke inhalation,” according to autopsy results from the Ventura County medical examiner’s office. Iverson lost his life battling the Thomas Fire on Thursday. A total of two people have been killed since the fire started. • Hefty price tag: About $110 million has been spent fighting the massive blaze, fire officials said. It was 40% contained Saturday night. • Improving weather conditions: Santa Ana winds did not immediately materialize on Sunday morning, though firefighters had been expecting the worst. Red-flag warnings were in effect for a large swath of Southern California through late Sunday, with wind gusts of up to 55 mph expected overnight, according to CNN meteorologist Gene Norman. • In the record books: The blaze has charred 267,500 acres and is now the third-largest wildfire in modern California history. Evacuations Twelve thousand people were evacuated in Santa Barbara County, with animals at the local zoo threatened as well. Santa Barbara Zoo closed Saturday and many animals were placed into cages in case of possible evacuations, zoo officials said. Only the endangered California condors and griffon vultures were taken to the Los Angeles Zoo, according to officials. The zoo had kept most animals indoors, away from smoke. Oprah Winfrey, who has a home in Montecito, one of the areas under evacuation orders, tweeted about the fire Saturday. “Still praying for our little town,” she said. “Winds picked up this morning creating a perfect storm of bad for firefighters,” she said. Meanwhile, residents who had evacuated their homes in Ventura County — where the fire began — were allowed to return Saturday. Jim Holden considers himself lucky that firefighters saved his home and items. “They put a water screen between my house and the house next door that was burning in an attempt to save it, but they didn’t think they were going to be successful,” he told CNN affiliate KABC. “They broke in and they saved my family photos and my computer, and things that they thought would be important to me.”

  • Hundreds come down with stomach illness during Royal Caribbean cruiseHundreds come down with stomach illness during Royal Caribbean cruise

    Watch Video PORT EVERGLADES, Fla.– A Royal Caribbean cruise ship returned to Florida on Saturday after hundreds of passengers contracted a gastrointestinal illness. During the five-night cruise, 332 cases of the illness were reported, Owen Torres, a spokesman for Royal Caribbean told CNN in a statement. He stressed that it was a small percentage — 5.99% — of the more than 5,000 passengers and crew onboard the ship, Independence of the Seas. “Those affected by the short-lived illness were treated by our ship’s doctors with over-the-counter medication,” Torres said, “and we hope all our guests feel better quickly.” It is not known what caused the illness. “It was just terrifying,” Tracy Flores, a passenger whose 15-year-old son came down with the illness, told CNN affiliate WPLG Saturday. “Just the amount of people that were coming in at the same time with vomiting and diarrhea and just looked ghastly.” WPLG reported that some passengers who were disembarking Saturday in Port Everglades, Florida, believed the number of passengers who got sick was higher than what Royal Caribbean said. “We talked to plenty of people who said that they were too sick to even make it down to the (ship’s) medical facility,” passenger Marsha Homuska told CNN affiliate WSVN. Torres, the Royal Caribbean spokesman, told CNN the company is “taking steps like intensive sanitary procedures to minimize the risk of any further issues,” and that the ship will “undergo special additional cleaning procedures before it departs on its next cruise.” “We encouraged our guests and crew to wash their hands often, which health experts recommend as the best defense against stomach viruses, which each year affect as many as 300 million people worldwide,” Torres said, adding, “only the common cold is more prevalent.”

  • Special counsel obtains thousands of Trump transition emailsSpecial counsel obtains thousands of Trump transition emails

    Watch Video WASHINGTON — Special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russian contacts with President Donald Trump‘s campaign has gained access to thousands of emails sent and received by Trump officials before the start of his administration, according to several people familiar with Trump’s transition organization. But the investigators did not directly request the records from Trump’s still-existing transition group, Trump for America, and instead obtained them from the General Services Administration, a separate federal agency that stored the material, according to those familiar with the Trump transition organization. The tens of thousands of emails in question pertain to 13 senior Trump transition officials. Many of the emails that Mueller’s investigators have now include national security discussions about possible Trump international aims as well as candid assessments of candidates for top government posts, said those familiar with the transition. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the records’ sensitivity. On Saturday, Kory Langhofer, general counsel for the transition group, sent a letter to two congressional committees arguing that the GSA had improperly provided the transition records to Mueller’s investigators. In the letter to the Republican chairmen of the House Oversight and the Senate Homeland Security committees, Langhofer contends that the disclosure by GSA was “unauthorized,” and it considers the documents private and privileged and not government property. Langhofer also said that a GSA official appointed by Trump in May had assured the transition in June that any request for records from Mueller’s office would be referred to the transition’s attorneys. According to Langhofer, the assurance was made by then-GSA General Counsel Richard Beckler, who was hospitalized in August and has since died. A copy of the letter was viewed by the AP. But late Saturday, another GSA official present for the conversation told Buzzfeed News that there was nothing improper about the disclosure of the emails to Mueller’s team. The GSA has provided office space and other aid to presidential transitions in recent years and typically houses electronic transition records in its computer system. GSA Deputy Counsel Lenny Loewentritt told Buzzfeed that Beckler didn’t make a commitment to the transition team that requests from law enforcement for materials would be routed through transition lawyers. Loewentritt said the transition was informed that by using government devices, the agency wouldn’t hold back records from law enforcement. Transition officials signed agreements that warn them that materials kept on the government servers are subject to monitoring and auditing, he told Buzzfeed, and there’s no expectation of privacy. The documents were provided to Mueller’s team by the GSA in September in response to requests from the FBI, but the transition wasn’t informed at the time, according to people familiar with the transition organization. Officials with Trump for America learned last Wednesday that GSA officials had turned over the cache of emails to Mueller’s team. Late Saturday, Mueller’s spokesman, Peter Carr, said the special counsel’s office has followed the law when it has obtained documents during its investigation. “When we have obtained emails in the course of our ongoing criminal investigation, we have secured either the account owner’s consent or appropriate criminal process,” Carr said. Among the officials who used transition email accounts was former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to a count of making false statements to FBI agents in January and is now cooperating with Mueller’s investigation. Flynn was fired by Trump in February for misleading senior administration officials about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. It’s unclear how revelatory the email accounts maintained by the GSA will be for Mueller. Several high-level Trump advisers sometimes used other email accounts to communicate about transition issues between Election Day and the inauguration. Flynn attorney, Robert Kelner, declined to comment. Jay Sekulow, an attorney on Trump’s personal legal team, referred questions to the transition group. Spokespeople for GSA didn’t immediately respond to AP’s emailed requests for comment. The media site Axios first reported on the transfer of the emails to Mueller’s team.

  • End of days comes for Ohio man’s ‘Zombie Nativity’End of days comes for Ohio man’s ‘Zombie Nativity’

    CINCINNATI— A macabre “Zombie Nativity” scene that’s become an annual tradition of sorts in a suburban Cincinnati neighborhood won’t be displayed next Christmas. Creator Jasen Dixon, a resident of Sycamore Township northeast of Cincinnati, says he will put the nativity scene in storage or sell it off after this year. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the nativity features hay, a zombie Mary, and a zombie baby Jesus. It made news worldwide and was met with celebration and scorn when it debuted four years ago. Dixon and Sycamore Township battled in 2015 and 2016 over free speech and zoning issues that resulted in fines and court action. Someone vandalized the display last year by beheading zombie Mary and throwing the zombie baby Jesus into the yard.

  • Report: New GM John Dorsey May Recommend Browns Coaching Change At Season’s EndReport: New GM John Dorsey May Recommend Browns Coaching Change At Season’s End

    CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Browns head coach Hue Jackson might not be on as solid of ground as owner Jimmy Haslam has proclaimed. CBS Sports NFL insider Jason LaCanfora reports that new general manager John Dorsey may advise Haslam to make another coaching change at season’s end. Dorsey, who was hired on Dec. 7 as Haslam’s fourth GM since buying the Browns in 2012, has been keeping close tabs on everything going on inside the building. Dorsey has been extremely visible – but quiet – during team meetings while observing how Jackson and his coaching staff operates. Haslam said that Jackson, who enters Sunday’s game 1-28 as head coach in Cleveland, would return in 2018 when it was announced Sashi Brown was fired. Haslam repeated those comments during Dorsey’s introductory press conference the following day. Since taking over as general manager 10 days ago, Dorsey has been critical of Brown and the state of the team’s roster, so it would stand to reason he wouldn’t be crazy about keeping a head coach that hasn’t won a football game in 2017. The one thing you’ve not heard Dorsey say or talk about – how well he feels the Browns are or aren’t coached. Because of the volatility of the franchise under the Haslams that has seen them fire 3 head coaches, 4 general managers, 2 team presidents and a CEO since assuming control of the team in late Oct. 2012, they’ve been resistant to making yet another round of changes at the coaching level but Dorsey could influence that heavily.

  • Cedi Osman Growing Confidence In Himself, From TeammatesCedi Osman Growing Confidence In Himself, From Teammates

    CLEVELAND (92.3 the Fan) – Rookie Cedi Osman may not be long for the Cleveland Cavaliers rotation, but while he is there, the Turk is making the most of his opportunity. The 22-year-old had a career night on Saturday, playing a career-high 23 minutes, notching a career-high 10 points. Pair that with his patented brand of energy and hounding defense, and the Cavs have found themselves a nice diamond in the rough. Entering the game averaging just under seven minutes per night, Osman played the final 15 minutes because of a Utah Jazz small-ball lineup. Channing Frye’s size was neutralized by the Jazz’s speed, but paving the way for the former 31st overall pick to run with them. “He’s always active,” Head Coach Tyronn Lue said. “He has great hands, plays hard, and sometimes he gets overanxious, sometimes he fouls jump-shooters because he wants to contest every shot. But he plays hard every single night, and that’s all you can ask. I mean, you’re not going to be able to stop these guys in the NBA every single night, especially one-on-one, but if you compete and give effort every night, that’s more than you can ask for, and that’s what Cedi does.” Osman is already one of the final bodies off of the bench, and with Isaiah Thomas’s return on the horizon, he will eventually be relegated back to a reserve. In the meantime, consistent minutes are priming the rookie for big minutes if needed. LeBron James said he sees Osman’s mental growth on the floor and a mutual confidence growing between them. “I said it this morning when you guys asked about Donovan Mitchell, I said ‘the one thing about this league is that when you get an opportunity, you start gaining confidence,’” James said. “Obviously that is what has been happening with Cedi. The coaches have confidence, we trust him on the floor.” Though he is still just 22, Osman had been playing professionally in Europe since 2011, getting double-digit minutes in the top Turkish division at 16. His knowledge of the game is evident, as well as his finishing at the rim, all honed in his already lengthy pro career. “He’s a sponge, he plays extremely hard and he knows how to play,” James added. “One thing about European guys is, when they come over, they know exactly how to play. What to do, when to cut, when to shoot, how to pass, they know the fundamentals. We definitely got a good one in Cedi.” Osman said he was surprised to still be on the floor at time where he would normally be subbed off, but that it was a product of just trying to be at his best. Still caught off-guard when he sees the likes of James, Kyle Korver and Kevin Love flanking him, the rookie remained gracious and humble. “For me, it’s really amazing being on this team,” Osman said. “We have great players, great coaches. This is a championship team. From the first day when we came as new players, we understood we have to leave as champions. From the first day.”

  • LeBron James Has 60th Triple-Double, Cavs Beat Jazz 109-100LeBron James Has 60th Triple-Double, Cavs Beat Jazz 109-100

    CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his 60th career triple-double and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the short-handed Utah Jazz 109-100 on Saturday night. James had his fifth triple-double of the season and third in his last four games. He had 10 points in the fourth quarter, was 9 of 15 from the field and 10 of 10 at the foul line. Cleveland has won 17 of 18 overall and 11 straight at Quicken Loans Arena. Center Rudy Gobert (sprained ligament and bone bruise in left knee) and forward Derrick Favors (left eye laceration) were out for Utah. Both were injured during Friday night in a win in Boston. Rookie Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz with 26 points, making 10 of 15 from the field. Utah made 17 of 34 3-point attempts. Kevin Love added 15 points for the Cavaliers. James scored six straight points after Utah cut the lead to 102-97 with four minutes left. James scored or assisted on each of Cleveland’s first 13 points. A left-handed dunk off a lob pass from Jeff Green on a fast break late in the first quarter brought the crowd to its feet. Utah stayed close for most of the game and trailed 70-69 late in the third quarter on a 3-pointer by Tabo Sefolosha. Green and Kyle Korver hit 3-pointers and Dwyane Wade converted a three-point play, helping Cleveland build an 89-80 lead. Korver scored 12 points, and Green had 11. Rookie Cedi Osman scored a career-high 10 points, including five in the fourth quarter. Gobert had an MRI on Saturday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks. Favors had six stitches after being hit with an elbow against Boston and could return Monday. TIP-INS Jazz: Sefolosha was held out Friday against Boston to recover from general soreness, but was forced into action because of the injuries to Gobert and Favors. “Frankly, I was hoping not to play him tonight, but with two guys out, we needed him in there,” coach Quin Snyder said. . G Raul Neto (concussion) and G Dante Exum (left shoulder surgery) also were unavailable. Cavaliers: Coach Tyronn Lue recorded his 100th regular-season win. …. Cleveland has hit at least 10 3-pointers in 19 straight games. … F Tristan Thompson returned after sitting out Thursday. He missed 19 games with a strained left calf and played a game last week. Thompson had four points with two rebounds in seven first-half minutes. UP NEXT Jazz: At Houston on Monday night. The Rockets have already beaten Utah twice this season. Cavaliers: At Washington on Sunday night. Cleveland has won three straight at the Wizards. (©Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Kemp is returning to the Los Angeles Dodgers as part of a five-player trade with the Atlanta Braves that includes cash. The Dodgers are sending first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, pitchers Scott Kazmir and Brandon McCarthy and infielder Charlie Culberson and cash to Atlanta. Gonzalez has been designated for assignment by the Braves. Kemp played for the Dodgers from 2006-14, hitting 182 home runs, fourth-most in Los Angeles history. Last season, the 33-year-old outfielder hit .276 with 19 homers, 64 RBIs and 23 doubles in 115 games with the Braves. The 35-year-old Gonzalez helped the Dodgers win five straight National League West division titles. He was an All-Star in 2015 and led the NL in RBI in 2014, but went on the disabled list last season for the first time in his career.   (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

  • LeBron Hoping To ‘Break The Mold’ On Aging NBA StarsLeBron Hoping To ‘Break The Mold’ On Aging NBA Stars

    INDEPENDENCE (92.3 the Fan) – By the time the 2017-18 NBA MVP is announced, LeBron James will be just about halfway to age 34. In his 15th season in the league, James is having his best statistical season, and is in a two-man race for MVP alongside James Harden of Houston. LeBron’s aging has been beyond graceful, but if he were to take home the individual hardware, he would become the third player to win the MVP at 33 or older. All three instances happened from 1997 to 1999 when Michael Jordan broke up Karl Malone’s two awards. It has always been about team success for LeBron, but even on an individual level, the impact he seeks on his legacy would be about more than just himself. “I want to kind of try to break the mold for the next generation,” he told reporters at shootaround on Saturday. “Just kind of take the narrative out of ‘you’re past your prime when you get 31,’ or ‘you’re past your prime when you’re in your 12th year in the league,’ or whatever the case may be. Hopefully I can break the mold, so when the next guy comes, he can still get two-hundred, three-hundred million and be 33-years-old.” James eclipsed that $200 million mark for player salary last season, with a $30 million paycheck from the Cavaliers, and will continue to sign for the max through what could be the next three or more years. With the increasing salary cap, young stars could see their income hit that mark even sooner than James, despite the extra season they are held out of the league relative to his career. LeBron’s talent remains unmatched, but his record of health may be almost as untouchable. At just 32, James has played the 26th most minutes of all time and 2nd most playoff minutes ever. He missed 20 games in 2011-12, but has missed no more than 13 in each of his other 14 seasons. If anyone wants to replicate LeBron’s career income, they will have to perform at their highest level through their mid-30s like him as well. Not everyone can take care of their bodies like James, and few will feel like he does at his age. “I’ll be 33 in… (14) days, this is my 15th season, and this is the best I’ve felt in my career,” he said. “I want it all.”
