At the half: Browns 21, Panthers 13
Because Jake Delhomme used to play for Carolina, the comparisons are going to come.
But today, it's Browns RB Peyton Hillis who looks like a former Panther -- Stephen Davis.
Hillis has 11 carries for 74 yards and three touchdowns, providing the Browns a 21-10 lead at halftime. That gives him 11 rushing touchdowns on the season, putting him with Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly as the only Browns to hit that mark in a season. The Panthers have no answers for him, his straight-ahead style isn't hard to figure, but it's hard to stop.
The Panthers offense has faltered after that opening drive touchdown (their first first-quarter TD of the year).
They did get a 43-yard John Kasay field goal midway through the quarter, but not enough to make you think they're getting back in this game. Even a 32-yard punt return by Captain Munnerlyn didn't net much, as they squeezed another late field goal out of it to cut the lead to eight with 47 seconds left.

To many stupid penalitites is killing this team. Eric N running to the kicker, Charles J and Sherrod M personal fouls. Gamble helment to helment hit.
Not a Panthers fan btw.
