Daily Dawg Tags: Browns hit historic low


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, Nov. 7.

The Cleveland Browns continued their march toward the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft on Sunday in dropping an ugly game to the Dallas Cowboys.

The Browns were never in the game as the offense couldn’t get anything going and the defense continued to be at its absolute worse.

“Obviously, not very good by us. My hat’s off to the Cowboys. They played good. We did not play good enough,” head coach Hue Jackson said of the 35-10 defeat. “We have to coach better to get them to play better and put them in better situations. That is just what it is. It is unfortunate.

“There are some things that I know we can do better and we will do better, but there are things that keep rearing its ugly head. We just have to get it right, and I get it and we will keep fighting.”

The good news is that the Browns only have to wait a few days to get back on the field as they are playing on national TV this Thursday night.

The bad news is that it is on the road against the Baltimore Ravens, who have beaten the Browns in 15 of their previous 17 meetings.

Yep, it’s going to be that kind of week.
