Daily Dawg Tags: Browns-themed fantasy football team names


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Friday, Sept. 9.

Football is finally back!

The Denver Broncos held on to a 21-20 win to win another game against the Carolina Panthers. The last one was a bit more important, but it is always nice to start the season with a win.

The Cleveland Browns will finally open the season this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, ushering in a new era of Browns football under Hue Jackson. The Eagles are starting rookie Carson Wentz at quarterback, so the Browns enter with a legitimate chance to win. I know, it’s a crazy thought.

Before we begin the weekend and prepare for the start of another Browns season, let’s take a look at the news surrounding the Browns and the rest of the NFL in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
