The Cleveland Browns are now 0-14 after a loss to the Buffalo Bills. As expected, there were few positives to take away from the game.
Another game, another loss.
The Cleveland Browns stayed on track for an 0-16 season with a boring 33-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills. It was a day when the offense was bad and the defense was worse, combining for a game that was over midway through the third quarter.
Robert Griffin III had another rough outing, although he was not getting much help from his receivers, as drops remained a consistent theme this week.
While it is inexcusable for any NFL team to have an 0-14 record, the lack of talent on the Browns continues to stand out after every loss. Hue Jackson wants his team to play a complete four quarters, but there just isn’t enough talent for his defense to pick up several stops in a row, or for the offense to string together back-to-back touchdown drives.
This was the plan all along, but that doesn’t mean it is fun to watch. Rebuilds are a fine concept if they work out in the end, but it is a miserable process for fans to watch a terrible team in the hopes that things will get better. And when new people promise success every few years, the hope starts to fade.
But there are still two chances for the Browns to pick up a win, as unlikely a win in 2016 may seem right now. We can only take it one game at a time, so let’s look at a few things that stood out from the loss to the Bills.
