BEREA, Ohio -- Tired of losing, and maybe just tired, Browns coach Hue Jackson spent much of Sunday night staring at the ceiling. Sleep eluded him.His insomnia is understandable given his team is 0-6, riddled with injuries, starting a rookie quarterback, and has lost nine in a row and 16 of 17 overall since last season.Those issues would keep the soundest sleeper awake.Jackson, though, believes the Browns are on the cusp of victory.We know it is coming, he said.A day after Clevelands comeback in the fourth quarter fell short in a 28-26 loss at Tennessee , Jackson, whose decision to go for a 2-point conversion has divided pundits and Browns fans, remains confident his young team is improving despite the litany of losses.We continue to stub our toe a little bit in some areas, said Jackson. We just have to continue to fight to get over that hump. We are not going to stop doing what we do. Im more determined -- I say that every week -- than ever before.Jacksons resolve is commendable, as is the fight in his players despite a rash of injuries that would affect any team -- never mind one with 18 rookies.But Jackson isnt using his teams youth or health as excuses. The baby Browns are taking baby steps. Jackson doesnt think it will be long before theyre off and running.Our guys are scrapping and clawing and trying to get there, he said. We are going to continue to harp on the fundamentals to get there. I truly believe we will get these things done. We have 10 more opportunities to get this thing done right.As has been the case in most of their games this season, the Browns had their share of bright spots, none shinier on Sunday than rookie quarterback Cody Kessler, who completed 26 of 41 passes for 336 yards and two touchdowns. In his fourth start, Kessler didnt make any major mistakes, survived being sacked six times, and showed poise and playmaking ability outside the pocket.Jackson feels Kessler, who had to be rushed into the lineup after injuries to Robert Griffin II and Josh McCown, is steadily improving.He continues to impress with his courage, Jackson said. He stands in there. He gets walloped a few times. He gets back up. He stands up and on he goes. That is pro football. Nobody likes their quarterback getting hit that much. I know I dont. There are some third down things we can do better and need to do better, but I think hes growing week by week, moment by moment, play by play.Kesslers progress could make the Browns rethink their future plans at quarterback, but thats a discussion for another day.Still, Jackson was effusive in his praise of the 23-year-old, who became emotional following Sundays loss when reflecting on his younger brother recently being hospitalized, as well as the death of his great-grandmother.This guy is playing as good as I have had in a long time, Jackson said.While Jacksons choice of Kessler in the draft isnt being panned as it once was, he was still being second-guessed Monday for his decision on a 2-point try.Down 15, the Browns scored with 2:10 left on a pass from Kessler to Terrelle Pryor. Rather than kick an extra point, which would have pulled them within eight of the Titans, Jackson decided to attempt a 2-point conversion, which failed, left Cleveland trailing 28-19 and essentially ended the game.The Browns recovered an onside kick and scored again with 30 seconds left. They were within two after a PAT kick, but they couldnt recover a second onside kick and the Titans ran out the clock.I felt very comfortable, and still do, with the decision we made, he said. Trust me you guys (reporters) made me think of it all night. I turned, tossed, pillow over my head, cover over my head, said, `Hue, OK. I have even called everybody that was involved with this with me, and I feel even better about what we decided to do today than even I did yesterday. I know there are two sides to every situation there. I respect how you all feel, but I feel very comfortable with the decision that we made for our team.Game notes Starting S Jordan Poyer remains hospitalized with a lacerated kidney. ... Jackson said Pryor injured his hamstring and will be assessed later in the week. Pryor had nine catches for 75 yards and two TDs against the Titans. ... McCown practiced last week but did not play, and Jackson doesnt know if hell be ready this week for the Bengals.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Carl Yastrzemski Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Brock Holt Jersey . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. http://www.redsoxjerseyscheap.com/ . Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set. Bill Lee Jersey . On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators. Andrew Benintendi Jersey . Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2.BOSTON -- Rookie Brandon Workman may be working his way into Bostons starting rotation. Workman struck out nine while picking up his first major league win, allowing one run over six innings as the Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 8-2 on Tuesday night. "Its great that they have confidence in me, to let me make these starts and think that I can help contribute," said Workman, who was making his third career start. "Its something Im trying to make the most of." Workman (1-1) has allowed five runs in 18 1-3 innings as a starter, going at least six innings each time. Workman allowed six hits, half of which came when he got himself in and out of a jam in the sixth to preserve a 6-1 lead. Seattle loaded the bases with three straight singles with one out, then the rookie regained his composure with two more strikeouts. Workman didnt allow a run after Seattle took a 1-0 lead on a pair of hits in the first. "Once he gets through the first or second inning, he really starts to find a very good rhythm. I thought he showed a tremendous amount of poise, particularly in the sixth," Boston manager John Farrell said. "The thing that stands out is just his willingness to attack the strike zone." Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia homered in the second, giving Workman a cushy 5-1 lead, and the young right-hander held on tightly. "He doesnt look like a young guy. He looks like a veteran guy," Pedroia said. Workman spoke a couple of hours before the Red Sox announced they had acquired veteran right-hander Jake Peavy from the Chicago White Sox in a three-way trade. "Thats not my place to say. Thats not something I try to worry about," Workman said about how a trade might affect his spot. "Im just trying to go out there and do the best I can whenever they give me the ball, whatever role that may be in." Joe Saunders (9-10) allowed six runs over five innings for Seattle, including two in the first as the Mariners set themselves back with an error and a passed ball. Pedroia drove in three runs, Shane Victorino had three hits and scored three runs, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia added a two-run homer in the eighth for Boston, which finished with 11 hits and left just three runners on base. The Red Sox led 2-1 after the first, before breaking it open with three more runs. Ellsbury hit a one-out homer into the Mariners bullpen, which appeared to be in for a busy night. It was Bostons fifth hit off Saunders, who was lucky Ellsburys fiifth homer of the season was a solo shot.dddddddddddd. Jose Iglesias led off the inning with a single, but tried to stretch it into a double and got caught in a long rundown. Victorino followed with a single, then Pedroia hit one out to left for a 5-1 lead, snapping an 0-for-16 slump. "I was throwing good pitches. I wasnt getting much help," Saunders said, declining to clarify whether he meant from his teammates or the umpires. "It was just a tough night for us. We didnt get any breaks." Saunders allowed one more run in the fourth when Victorino doubled and scored on a single by Pedroia. Seattle took a 1-0 lead in the first when Nick Franklin doubled with one out and scored on a single by Kendrys Morales. The Mariners loaded the bases with one out in the sixth on consecutive singles by Kyle Seager, Morales and Raul Ibanez. Workman struck out Michael Morse for the second out, then got Justin Smoak swinging on his 103rd pitch of the night to end the threat. "We had our backs up against the wall there early and were never able to make a run at it," acting manager Robby Thompson said. "We did have a chance in the sixth." Workmans previous high for strikeouts was five against Oakland in his first career start on July 14, when he left with the score tied at 2 in the seventh and didnt figure in the decision. His only other start was last Monday against Tampa Bay, when he allowed two runs in six innings but got absolutely no offensive support in the 3-0 victory for the Rays. Notes: The Red Sox held a pregame ceremony honouring former manager Joe Morgan, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch. The Red Sox won their first 12 games after Morgan took over midway through the 1988 season and went on to win the American League East during the era dubbed "Morgan Magic" in Boston. ... The three-game series continues Wednesday with Seattle ace Felix Hernandez (11-4) facing Boston RHP John Lackey (7-8). ... Farrell said before the game that Boston hoped to have RHP Clay Buchholz (right shoulder) back in the rotation, but could not say how soon. "That would be as good of an addition as we can make at any deadline," Farrell said. ... Saunders opened July with four straight wins and ended the month on a two-game losing streak. ... Iglesias was applauded after his baserunning blunder in the second. He avoided the tag at second with a slide beyond the bag, then went back and forth until Seattle eventually got him on a 7-4.
