New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles tie for AFC wild card

Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown, a fan favorite, was honored at the team’s home opener with a bobblehead from New England.

The Patriots and Browns played in their first NFL playoff game last month.

NFL Network’s Peter King was the first to report the news.

Patriots quarterback Josh Freeman, the team captain, was also honored with a Bobblehead BobbleHead from the Browns.

The Browns and Patriots play Sunday in Cleveland, Ohio.

The Eagles beat the Colts 23-16 in Indianapolis in their season opener.

NFL Networks NFLN Insider Mike Garafolo first reported the team was hosting McCown for the bobbleheads.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, who has been a longtime fan of McCown and his team, said in a statement the team would not celebrate McCown’s birthday.

“We’ve always said it’s an honor to host him for the Bobbleheads and that’s the only way we can honor him,” Haslam said.

The Colts are 4-2 and have won six straight games after falling behind 10-0 at halftime of their Week 2 loss to the Jaguars.

They also have scored at least one touchdown in six straight road games, dating to last season.

The Texans are 2-1 and are the league’s top seed after beating the 49ers 38-10 on Sunday.

McCown was benched in Week 1 for the first time in four seasons and is 6-1 this season with an 11.10 passer rating.

He threw for 304 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-17 win over the Jaguars in Houston on Oct. 15.

McCaw has thrown for 1,036 yards, nine touchdowns and no interceptions in the past three games.
