TONIGHT'S NFL GAME : Oilers Hope to Retain Series Edge as Browns Try to Keep Momentum

October 13, 1994|From Associated Press

HOUSTON — The Houston Oilers have a legacy to fulfill. The Cleveland Browns have one to overcome.

The Oilers are at the same starting point--1-4--as a season ago, when they won their last 11 games and their second consecutive AFC Central title.

The Browns are 4-1 but have a history of fading in the stretch. But they hope to avoid another collapse beginning tonight, when they try to beat the Oilers for only the second time in nine games.

The Browns, after three seasons of turmoil under Coach Bill Belichick, are beginning to see results.

The Browns have a 7-17 combined record in the second half of the last three seasons under Belichick. They started last season 5-2 and finished 2-7. In 1992, they started 4-3 and finished 3-6.

Belichick now feels comfortable enough to loosen the reins.
