Browns center Hank Fraley doesn't rush home after games at Cleveland Browns Stadium and he doesn't figure this week against San Francisco will be any different.

''I do a little tailgating afterwards, friends and family and teammates,'' Fraley said. ''I host a tailgate after every game, win or lose. It's a better tailgate when we win. I used to do it in Philly and I brought it here.''

Browns coach Romeo Crennel never tries to downplay his responsibilities in how his team fares. But more than once after Sunday's 27-21 loss at Arizona, Crennel called himself out.
