NEW YORK -- Comments on the Cleveland Browns by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

CLEVELAND BROWNS (25)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 23) -- Formidable down the stretch.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 24) -- Progress has been made progress, but will Pat Shurmur get to stay?

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 25)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 23) -- Have a real chance to make it three in a row this week against KC for the first time in a long while.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 23) -- Ah, the rarefied air of two straight wins. Hasn't happened very often since the Browns came back to Cleveland in 1999.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 22) -- The 4-8 Browns have the youngest starting lineup in the NFL but that youth is finally starting to figure this league out. The Browns have won two in a row since pushing the Cowboys into overtime in Dallas.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 25) -- So the Browns ended a 12-game losing streak on the road. I think that says more about Oakland than it does Cleveland.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 22) -- They've been quite competitive for the past two months.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 25) -- No one at the Browns should be fired by the new owner. In fact, the way this large group of rookies are playing is ground for a raise. Do the right thing Jimmy Haslim.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 24) -- The Browns have won two in a row. That's right, the Browns have won two in a row.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 24) -- Pat Shurmur's job as head coach may be safe if Cleveland keeps showing improvement. The Browns (4-8) would string together their first three-game winning streak since the end of 2009 with a victory Sunday against Kansas City.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 24) -- The Browns have won two in a row and could make it three straight against K.C. Maybe the Mayans were right about the world ending this month.
