ST. LOUIS - Todd Gurley heard the fans chanting his name. The rookie is commanding that kind of attention.
"It's not all me," he said. "We've just got to keep improving and executing."
During the week, coach Jeff Fisher said Gurley wasn't yet 100 percent. He looked pretty dominant against the Browns, hurdling tacklers on at least two occasions and churning for extra yards up the middle.
"He's a playmaker," teammate Kenny Britt said. "He can change the game and he's going to really help us out."
"Giving up six points is great," McLeod said. "You can't ask for anything more than that."
"I felt something in the back of my shoulder," McCown said. "Again, I'm not going to comment anymore on that."
Manziel fielded just as many questions about an ongoing NFL investigation as he did the possibility of starting next week at home against Arizona. The league is looking into whether he violated its personal conduct policy.
Manziel was questioned on Oct. 12 by police in Avon, Ohio, after the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and girlfriend Colleen Crowley argued while he drove on a highway. Crowley told police that Manziel hit her several times.
Manziel denied striking Crowley, was not arrested and the couple was allowed to leave together. He said he hasn't talked to an NFL official.
"When they do come, if they do come, if anything like that happens, I'll fully cooperate with them and give them exactly what happened that day from my side of the story," he said.
McCown is 1-5 as the Cleveland starter and has lost to the Rams for three straight seasons with three different teams. He was with Chicago in 2013 and Tampa Bay last year.
The Rams totaled 158 yards rushing with a 6.1-yard average against the NFL's worst defense against the run.
Gurley had a big grin on his face as Britt followed him back to the bench and waved his arms at the crowd in celebration after the running back scored his second TD in the fourth quarter.
Fisher was on the field frantically waving for a timeout just before the snap on Gurley's first career touchdown that made it 17-6 late in the third. Gurley ambled in untouched from a yard out, and Fisher spun the headset wire around his legs as he retreated to sideline.
"It looked like we had a little bye-week hangover," Fisher said.
McCown was 26 for 32 for 270 yards with no TDs or interceptions. Gary Barnidge was his top target with six catches for 101 yards, although the tight end's streak of four straight games with a score ended.
Barnidge had a tooth knocked out and his lip stitched at halftime.
