Browns QB Brandon Weeden blocking out critics

Posted: Updated:

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden joked that he felt 40 on his 30th birthday.

Weeden, trying to put an embarrassing interception in Sunday's loss to Detroit behind him, said Monday that he feels he has the support of his teammates despite the gaffe that came one day before he turned 30. Weeden has been vilified outside of Cleveland's locker room following his inexcusable, backhanded flip that was picked off by the Lions in the final minutes of a 31-17 loss.

Browns fans have been particularly tough on Weeden, who said the criticism is just part of being an NFL quarterback and that he has "very good earmuffs on."

Browns Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas said Weeden's teammates still believe in him and are confident he will bounce back this week when Cleveland travels to Green Bay.
