Browns-Bills notes

By Marla Ridenour Published: October 11, 2009

Wimbley adds to sacks

Browns outside linebacker Kamerion Wimbley notched his fourth sack of the season in the second quarter, equalling his total from all of 2008 and giving him one in three consecutive games.

But Wimbley was burned on a 35-yard catch by running back Marshawn Lynch early in the third quarter that set up a 36-yard game-tying field goal by Buffalo's Rian Lindell.

Wimbley finished with 11 tackles (five solos) and a quarterback hurry to go along with the sack.

Edwards' rough day

Bills quarterback Trent Edwards was called out by Browns defensive coordinator Rob Ryan on Friday, with Ryan saying, ''I don’t think that’s Carson Palmer back there, by any stretch.''

Edwards didn't do anything to change Ryan's mind, completing 16 of 31 for 152 yards and an interception for a 52.1 rating.

Huge break

Joshua Cribbs muffed a punt in the first quarter that was recovered by teammate Eric Wright at the Cleveland 4. But the Bills had two men illegally downfield, forcing a rekick. The next punt by Brian Moorman went into the end zone.

Esiason on trade

Boomer Esiason of CBS on Braylon Edwards being traded to the Jets: ''To me that is like being a defector from Cuba coming over here and having a new lease on life. It was good for Eric Mangini to get rid of a malcontent in the locker room and self-preservation on his part. And for the Jets, they add a Pro Bowl wide receiver who is 6-3, who is well versed in the Jets offense, because Cleveland plays the same offense. He will be a good fit for the Jets. I think you will see that starting Monday night.''
