During a press conference on Friday, Cleveland Browns Head Coach Mike Pettine made a comment that his team is a resilient one. 

The full quote stated:

“The one thing about this team is I think it’s a resilient group. I think we all had a tough time getting out of bed the next day, but that’s life in the NFL. You have to be able to – I use the word ‘compartmentalize’ in here all the time. This was as big of a test of our ability to do that than any but we always say it doesn’t matter what happened the week before, good or bad, whether it was the Baltimore win the first game and the ability to come off of that high and move on to the next one or something as low as the feeling that we all had losing the game the way that we lost it. We rely heavily on our guys’ competitiveness, resilience and professionalism. ‘Listen, I’m getting paid to do a job and I have to be on to the next one.’”

This comes days after Will Hill returned a blocked field goal 64 yards for a touchdown as time expired, giving the Baltimore Ravens a 33-27 win Monday night over the Browns.

Pettine also said it Austin Davis had a good week of practice as the No. 1 quarterback. Pettine announced Tuesday that quarterback Josh McCown was out for the season due to a collar bone injury

He also said quarterback Johnny Manziel will be the No. 2 goig into the next game. 

The Cleveland Browns will play the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at 1 p.m.
