CLEVELAND — Happy "Victory Monday"!
All of Cleveland is in a happy mood today following the Browns' 31-21 win over the Houston Texans in their home opener. It was the team's first win of the season, and also the first time FirstEnergy Stadium was filled to capacity in nearly two years.

With fans continuing to celebrate, 3News sports anchor Nick Camino joined Stephanie Haney today for the latest edition of "3 Things About The Browns." The two discussed some of the hot topics surrounding the team, and even after a win, not all of them are positive.
Here's what they talked about after Week 2:
What's up with the defense?
Despite coming up with some big stops late, the Browns' defense struggled for much of the day against an underwhelming Houston team, and may have had even more trouble had Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor not gotten hurt. Nick dives into what the club has to do better on that side of the ball.
Browns fans held their collective breath after watching Baker Mayfield injure his left shoulder, but QB1 didn't miss a play and helped engineer a comeback. The same could not be said for star receiver Jarvis Landry, who left after the opening drive and is now "week-to-week" with a sprained MCL. Steph asks Nick about how health could impact the team's production going forward.
The former Ohio State star relieved an injured Andy Dalton yesterday in Chicago, and could very well get the start this Sunday when the Bears come to Cleveland. Nick thinks facing a rookie (albeit a highly touted one) could be just the thing the Browns' defense needs to get back on track.
