6:17 pm
about 46 cleveland and east wind it will be colder in sandusky. here is 4:00 upper 40s and winds south and 49 your daytime high. increasing clouds and turning windy late afternoon out of the east and rain tomorrow night and could be thunder with a strong cold front and high risk of rain and thunder. winds gusting over 40 at times tomorrow night. that could be a factor. heavy rain threat is there as well. briefly. 7:00 tomorrow evening we are still dry and here it comes by 1:00 a.m. tomorrow night going into early wednesday and then the system will move out. still windy wednesday and also warm still.

6:21 pm
scoring more points. how does that factor in with you guys playing defense. >> when you create possessions there's more opportunities for the opponent to score and playing a slow pace not as many possessions and a team can't score. obviously that's our focus. the main focus is to defend and get stops and we have to have that mindset. we want to get stops first and allow what we are trying to transition into more. the greater thing for us and getting our run. >> cavs and pacers at 7:00. see it on fox sports ohio. browns fans started to get johnny manziel name out of twitter feeds for the entire month of february or until browns cut him. here, here and here. let me know if you need help johnny-free february campaign.
