Daily Dawg Tags: Browns enter bye searching for a win


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. 28.

The Cleveland Browns will enter December without a win. So much for holiday cheer.

12 losses in a season is nothing new to Browns fans, but all 12 coming before a win is something new. It has all but destroyed any optimism surrounding this team and what the future holds. Don’t worry, the NFL Draft usually helps restore some of the fun of being a Browns fan.

Next Sunday is the Browns’ bye week, which means fans can find something fun to do instead of watching a losing football team. It will feel weird, but it will be great.

The bye should help restore some sense of excitement for the Week 14 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, who are currently struggling with a record of 3-7-1. It would be foolish to say the Browns will win this game, but there is a chance. There’s always a chance.

But while we continue to process 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.
