Browns (1-1) at Raiders (0-2)

Browns (1-1) at Raiders (0-2)


Kickoff: 4:05 p.m., Network Associates Coliseum.


TV: CBS. Former NFL quarterback Steve Beuerlein will analyze the Browns a second straight week.


Line: Raiders by 3.


Series: The Raiders lead, 9-7, but the Browns have won six of the last seven, including 9-7 at Oakland in 2005 and 24-21 at Oakland in 2006.


McCown’s Town: Josh McCown, who got a three-year trial as a starting QB in Arizona, gets his third and perhaps last start as a first-year Raider. He came in an April trade, but an August arrival, Daunte Culpepper, could bump him as early as the first quarter today.


No Moss: Randy Moss played for the Raiders in last year’s game but caught only one pass for five yards. Former college quarterback Ronald Curry is a good-hands receiver whom QB Josh McCown looks for.


Big Money: Defensive tackle Gerard Warren can play when he wants to. Who knows whether he’ll want to against the team that spent a No. 3 overall draft pick on him in 2001?


Money back: LaMont Jordan gave the Raiders a career-high 159 yards at Denver and was strong in overtime, breaking a 33-yarder to get the them in field goal range.


Browns injuries: Out - LB Willie McGinest (back). Doubtful - S Gary Baxter(knees), P Dave Zastudil (back). Questionable - S Mike Adams (wrist), CB Leigh Bodden (groin), S Brodney Pool (concussion), G Isaac Sowells (personal).


Raiders injuries: Out - LB Isaiah Ekejiuba (foot). Doubtful - RB Oren O’Neal (hamstring), LB Robert Thomas (hamstring). Questionable - DE Derrick Burgess (calf), C Jeremy Newberry (hamstring), CB Duane Starks (groin). Probable - RB LaMont Jordan (back), QB Josh McCown (foot).


Next Sunday: The Browns will complete their September house party for AFC North foes with a home game against Baltimore.
