CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns finally matter. Twenty years and 11 head coaches later. Chris Palmer, Butch Davis, Terry Robiskie, Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Pat Shurmur, Rob Chudzinski, Mike Pettine, Hue Jackson, Gregg Williams, Freddie Kitchens. We count the interim head coaches here, too, for a couple reasons. One, therapists say a full unburdening is the quickest path to healing. Two, Gregg Williams might come looking for me if I didn't. This newfound Browns relevancy is not only reflected in the prime-time schedule, though that's as good a place as any to start. They play only four 1 p.m. games in their first 10. Monday night against the Jets and Niners. Sunday night against the Rams.
