Having games come down to Phil Dawson kicks for three consecutive weeks is taking its toll on Cleveland quarterback Derek Anderson.
''I'm lost right now,'' Anderson said after the 33-30 overtime victory at Baltimore. ''There's way too much to think about. I'm excited for everybody we won it.''
But as for the stress involved, Anderson siad, ''I wouldn't recommend it. I try to stay calm and know we're going to get a chance. I looked at the clock 28 seconds (in regulation), three timeouts. They're kicking it to Josh, you might get it on the 1-inch line.''
Here are some other jumbled thoughts Anderson had afterward.
(immediate reaction) Little crazy, huh? I'm kind of in awe right now. I was talking to Kyle (Boller) and saying, 'That was not very good.'
It's not always going to be perfect. Kellen made a great play to seal it.¶
(the last 3 weeks) It's been a little crazy. From one inch away we miss it and that's two more losses. It seems like every game I've been in is like that. It's a good feeling.¶
(penalties) We've got to correct that. I don't know what Chud's goimg to call on second and 35. It's a loud atmosphere, we have to stay confident and be poised in there.
(Ravens defense) They're a top five defense and I thought they had a good plan trying to take away Kellen and braylon. it was frustrating at times, but we kept fighting.¶
(pass to Braylon in regulation) I had to give it a chance. We had three seconds left. If I take a sack, it's over. I knew the middle of the field was going to be open and we had three timeouts. I missed him the play before. We ran a pump and he was wide open running down the sideline.¶
(last kick evidence) I didn't think about it. I was standing in the huddle and Hank goes, 'How did they get the machine fixed?'
