Lost in the euphoria of the Cleveland Browns' rousing Week 3 victory over the Minnesota Vikings? A plodding start by their new running back.

Willis McGahee struggled mightily his debut as Trent Richardson's replacement finishing with 9 yards on eight carries in the win.

Not surprisingly McGahee sees things turning out differently when the Browns host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

"Oh yeah it's going to be a dramatic improvement" he said via The Plain Dealer. "Oh we're going to have more than (9) yards rushing. Don't worry about that. That's going to be an improvement. It's me getting familiar with the guys learning how they do things how they attack and handle certain situations so I'm good."

McGahee found coming back from a long layoff -- he hadn't played in a game since last November -- presented unforeseen challenges.
