Sunday replay: New England Patriots demolish Cleveland Browns 45-7

Nine AFC teams enter Sunday with five wins. Two of them meet in New England when the Cleveland Browns visit the Patriots. Both teams are 5-4.

The Browns look for their second straight win after they went to Cincinnati and routed the Bengals 41-16 last week.

The Patriots have won three in a row, rolling over the Panthers 24-6 a week ago.
