Peter King starts his column today in the exact same way I was planning on starting my column tomorrow -- by reminding everyone not to get carried away by the results of Week 1. But he's pretty excited about the Cleveland Browns anyway. From his description of the game, an improved defense was a big part of keeping Jamal Lewis in check. Of course, we all know that 370+ carries in 2003 was also a big part of keeping Jamal Lewis in check... probably for much of this season. Peter also reveals that there will now be a Tuesday version of MMQB. Does Gregg Easterbrook have grounds for a lawsuit here? And does that mean we'll have to do a second Peter King homage contest?
The 2015 Saints were the worst defense we have ever measured, and Brandon Browner set a single-season record for penalties, so it's no surprise to see him at the bottom of the coverage tables.
