CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns coach Rob Chudzinski will not bench quarterback Brandon Weeden following Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Weeden threw an inexcusable interception in the fourth quarter of the 31-17 loss to the Lions, who outscored the Browns 24-0 in the second half. But Chudzinski said Weeden played "well in spurts" and he has no intention of making a switch to backup Jason Campbell. Chudzinski said there was plenty of blame to be shared as Cleveland had its three-game winning streak stopped.
Chudzinski said there was no discussion about demoting Weeden, who returned to the starting lineup after Brian Hoyer sustained a season-ending knee injury.
Chudzinski said Weeden's teammates have not lost confidence in him "at all." Chudzinski said the team needs to work with Weeden on "cutting out the critical mistakes."
