Hillis' demeanor takes an upturn

Peyton Hillis has been through a rough season, dealing with everything from strep throat, to a hamstring problem, to contract issues and a team intervention.

But as his disappointing 2011 season hits the home stretch, Hillis' approach is on the uptick, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"I'm starting to get back into the groove of things," Hillis said.

Just in time for the Browns to perhaps play spoiler in the AFC North with four of their final five games against the Baltimore Ravens, whom they face this week and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
