Daily Dawg Tags: Browns fall to 0-6 after latest loss


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Monday, Oct. 17.

Even with great effort on both sides of the ball, the Cleveland Browns were unable to pick up a win Sunday afternoon in Tennessee.

Cody Kessler returned from his rib injury and had a solid game, but early drives that resulted in field goals instead of touchdowns were the difference in this one. The good news is that Kessler stayed healthy, and should remain the starter moving forward even with Josh McCown likely returning to the active roster.

It is easy to get frustrated with the lack of winning, but this team was not built to contend in 2016, or even 2017. The close losses are indicative of a young team, and may continue to happen during the final ten games of the season.

This is not to say one should be happy with the losses, but just to realize that this roster is just not that talented.

While we continue to cover the fallout from this latest loss, 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.
