Donte Whitner is the biggest trash talking safety in the NFL, but boy did he back it up this week. A forced fumble by Donte Whitner and recovery by Joe Haden late in the third quarter when the Raiders were trailing 9-6 and threatening to take the lead proved to be the turning point in the game. Whitner forced Darren McFadden to fumble at the Browns’ 20 – on the 12th play of the drive – and Haden recovered to steal back the momentum.
That fumble was the reason the fans and the team turned it around. A matter of fact, Mike Pettine was pumped by Whitner’s play.

Mike Pettine’s first thoughts on the big win: “F– yeah” as he hugs Donte Whitner
Whitner and Hoyer are both Cleveland natives and they are playing a very high level right now. The Browns are 4-3 and in the chase for the AFC North.
