    PITTSBURGH -- With off-season changes looming, Cleveland Browns players and coaches entered Sunday's game fighting for spots in the league in 2013.

    Quarterback Thad Lewis may have done the most of anyone on the field to assure himself of a job somewhere next year. Third on the depth chart, Lewis' first NFL start didn't come with spectacular numbers (22-of-32, 204 yards, 1 TD, 1 interception), but his effort in the 24-10 loss may help his status in Cleveland (depending on the coach) or with another NFL team.

    What did we learn: OK, it's a low bar to clear, but Lewis did better in his debut than Brandon Weeden. Lewis made one huge mistake with a Troy Polamalu interception in the first half, but showed poise in the pocket and zip with his release. He did make the usual rookie mistake by staring down receivers, but at least made quick decisions.

    Lewis, 25, gave evidence that he might be a No. 2 in the NFL. Regardless of the Browns' final decision on a coaching staff, Lewis at least got the chance to display his talents to the league.

    Browns quarterback Thaddeus Lewis isn't accustomed to the spotlight. In fact, he has never played in an NFL game.

    That could change on Sunday in Pittsburgh. Starter Brandon Weeden and backup Colt McCoy both missed practice on Wednesday with right shoulder injuries. The Browns have signed veteran Josh Johnson, but Lewis is taking the first-team reps.When Lewis faced the cameras in the first extensive interview with the media of his professional career, he felt a bit overwhelmed.

    "I wouldn't say I was a celebrity," he said with a smile. "The lights are bright, though."

    They will also be bright in Pittsburgh, where the Browns will try to avoid a three-game losing streak to end the season and Lewis could be "living out a childhood dream" if neither Weeden nor McCoy is available. "If my number is called, it's going to be amazing," he said.
