Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett on Wednesday appealed his suspension for his on-field conduct last Thursday, when he took Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph's helmet and hit Rudolph in the head, stating in his hearing that precedent doesn't support his indefinite ban, ESPN reported. Citing a source, ESPN's Dan Graziano said Garrett and representatives from the players union argued in an appeal hearing in New York that a player involved in a similar incident in 2013 received only a three-game suspension. In the hearing, Graziano reported, Garrett and his team likened the action to what happened in a 2013 preseason game when Antonio Smith of the Houston Texans swung his helmet at offensive lineman Richie Incognito, who then played for the Miami Dolphins.

As the Cleveland Browns stumbled to a 2-6 start in a loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday, CBS sideline reporter Jay Feely reported on air that Odell Beckham Jr. complained about not getting the ball. “I can't get the ball to save my life,” Feely reported Beckham as saying. After the 24-19 loss, Beckham denied making the statement, telling reporters he doesn't even know who Feely is.

Bill Belichick reached a special coaching milestone Sunday against the team that gave him his first head coaching job. The New England Patriots head coach earned his 300th career win (regular season and playoffs combined) in Week 8 when his team beat the Cleveland Browns 27-13 at Gillette Stadium. Belichick first became a head coach in 1991 when the Browns hired him after he won two Super Bowls as the defensive coordinator of the New York Giants.

The Cleveland Browns apparently don't plan on letting the NFL trade deadline pass without making a significant offensive line acquisition for quarterback Baker Mayfield. The only question is whether general manager John Dorsey can reel in the perennial Pro Bowler he's been pursuing for nearly two months, or settle for something less. Multiple league sources have told Yahoo Sports that Dorsey has spent weeks reaching out to a swath of teams about acquiring offensive line help before the deadline — including three from the NFC East: the Washington Redskins, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles.

Beckham drew safety attention from the Ravens defense, allowing Jarvis Landry to run wild with 167 receiving yards as Cleveland got on track with a win over a rival. On Monday, Beckham again caught two passes, this time for 27 yards in a 31-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The Browns dropped to 2-3 with the ugly loss, exposed as a considerably lesser team than the one that entered the season with a tremendous amount of hype.

It was way back when, which is to say last month, that Baker Mayfield was the hottest young quarterback in the NFL not named Patrick Mahomes. It was way back when, which is to say before the Cleveland Browns started the season 1-2 and Mayfield threw five interceptions, that an article in GQ came out with quotes from Mayfield disparaging Daniel Jones. It was way back then that Jones was the NFL's punching bag, a predicted dud from Duke who the New York Giants supposedly selected too high (sixth overall in 2019) considering he won games too infrequently at the college level.

Odell Beckham Jr. had a career-long, 89-yard touchdown reception, and Myles Garrett recorded three sacks as the Cleveland Browns posted a 23-3 victory over the New York Jets on Monday night at East Rutherford, N.J. Baker Mayfield completed 19 of 35 passes for 325 yards with one interception and the touchdown to Beckham, who had six catches for 161 yards. Beckham's big showing came at MetLife Stadium, the venue he called home for five seasons with the New York Giants before being traded to the Browns during the offseason.

Beckham's big showing came at MetLife Stadium, the venue he called home for five seasons with the New York Giants before being traded to the Browns during the offseason. Nick Chubb added a rushing touchdown and Austin Seibert kicked three field goals for Cleveland (1-1), which impressively rebounded from a season-opening 43-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Odell Beckham Jr.'s return to New York's MetLife Stadium Monday was eventful from the get-go. The Cleveland Browns receiver was spotted wearing a $2 million watch during pregame warmups ahead of a matchup with the New York Jets. He then made a spectacular one-handed sideline grab that brought back memories of the iconic catch he made during his New York Giants days on the game's opening drive.
