Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game. Here's how those things panned out last night:
1. Protect the ball: The Browns haven't done a lot of things well this season, but forcing turnovers has been one of them. Coming into the game, their 26 takeaways were the second most in the league. Against the Eagles, the Browns had three interceptions - picking off passes by Donovan McNabb, Kevin Kolb and DeSean Jackson - and ran back one for a touchdown.
2. Neutralizing Cribbs: The Eagles knew they couldn't afford to let Josh Cribbs become a factor. Listed as a wide receiver, the former Kent State quarterback is a multidimensional weapon, who runs, throws and returns kickoffs. Last night, he had five carries for 25 yards, threw one incomplete pass, and returned three kickoffs for 63 yards.
