Daily Dawg Tags: Browns fall to 0-8 with loss to Jets


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. 31.

It’s the final day of October, and the Cleveland Browns have zero wins. It is the first time the team has started 0-8 since the 1975 season, and it is certainly not what fans expected in 2016.

The latest loss came at home to the New York Jets, in a game that seemed promising at halftime. The Browns were up 20-7, only to lose by the final score 31-28, with the only second half points for the Browns coming in the final seconds of the game.

Real fears of an 0-16 season are beginning to creep in, but it still may be a bit early to begin assuming the worst. This team is undoubtedly at its worst in a long time, but there are still eight more games to play. They have to win one, right?

While we continue to talk about the 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.
