Shurmur: "I'm not worried about saving my job"

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - With his team on its longest winning streak in three seasons, Browns coach Pat Shurmur says he's only focused on Cleveland's next game.

As rumors swirl about his future after this season, Shurmur said Monday that "I'm not worried about saving, I'm worried about doing my job." The Browns (5-8) won their third straight game Sunday, a 30-7 rout of the Kansas City Chiefs. The Browns, who opened the season 0-5, last won three in a row at the end of the 2009 season, when a 4-game winning streak helped Eric Mangini's case to come back for a second year.

During his news conference, Shurmur pointed out that the Browns have had 72 games started by rookies, an NFL-high. He called their winning streak "intoxicating" for his young players who want to win "more and more and more."
