The Cleveland Browns missed an abundance of opportunities to make Sunday’s game interesting. How did each major position group perform in the defeat?
A slew of missed opportunities proved to be costly once again in the Cleveland Browns’ 24-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The incompetent coaching staff failed to make the necessary adjustments to keep the team close, and as a result, the win category remains empty.
The loss was disturbing in so many ways, as the inability to protect the quarterback became so unbelievably predictable. Cody Kessler ended up needing to leave the game and was later diagnosed with a concussion. Veteran Josh McCown was forced to replace him, coming off of the bench for the second consecutive week.
In the end, one of the better defensive performances of the season was wasted by a discombobulated and sloppily inadequate offense. Now, at 0-11, the frustration continues.
The following is a complete analysis in the form of letter grades. Each major position group is graded based on their play in this game only, as no other factors are taken into account.
