It's a ghost town here

Fifteen minutes before kickoff, and Cleveland Browns Stadium looks like it normally does at 3:45 p.m.; the place is nearly empty. The difference is in a 1 p.m. kickoff the Browns are usally being clobbered and the fans are headed to the exits. Kickoff is 4:05 p.m. today so fans in San Diego can watch at 1 p.m. PST instead of 10 a.m.

The crowd could be in the concourse staying warm until just before kickoff, but I doubt it. The better guess is the crowd is in the mall Christmas shopping, putting up the tree or taking advantage of no television blackout.

Hank Poteat is starting for injured (concussion) Brodney Pool at safety and C.J. Mosley is starting for Kenyon Coleman (knee) at end. Mosley expects the Chargers to run the ball down the Browns' throats, but with Poteat at safety don't be surprised in Philp Rivers throws three touchdown passes.
