Daily Dawg Tags: The problems with the running game


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Thursday, Oct. 20.

Well, the Cleveland Browns were just put under a lot of pressure to be successful sooner than later.

Four months after the Cleveland Cavaliers won an NBA championship, the Cleveland Indians are heading to the World Series. Cleveland sports is on a magical run. Well, as long as you don’t count the Browns.

The Browns have yet to win a game this year, which is due to a whole variety of issues on both sides of the ball. One of the issues is the declining running game, which seemed to be a strength just a few weeks ago.

The constant injuries to the offensive line have done nothing to help, but this team must re-establish the run game if they are going to win any games this season.

The excitement is currently surrounding the Indians, but the Browns are still in preparation for this Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. While we wait, 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.
