FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) -- Mike Vrabel and the New England defense baffled Cleveland's quarterbacks, then knocked them to the ground.Vrabel's three sacks helped Adam Vinatieri's three field goals stand up in the Patriots' 9-3 win over the Browns on Sunday, stretch New England's winning streak to four games.
They won't be able to score or move the ball without Green. The Browns' passing game is woeful and dependent on Green's contributions to the offense. They need to either get some semblance of a rushing game going with someone else or nurse Green back to health quickly.
Question on the Patriots: Where do you rank the Pats' defense?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
