Browns’ defense shows toughness, tears before pivotal win

CINCINNATI — If playing defense is about toughness, then the scene in the Cleveland Browns’ team meeting room at a Cincinnati hotel Thursday afternoon seems awfully confusing.

“Some guys had tears,” safety Donte Whitner said.

Whitner had a story to tell, and that story was all about toughness. He told it to the team, how he was raised by a single mother, not having a bed to sleep in, how he almost died in a car wreck as a boy. That background makes the game of football easy to play, Whitner says.
