The Cleveland Browns continued to make mistakes against the Colts in Week 3, with the latest loss being the focus of the newest episode of the DPD Podcast.

I made the mistake of being too optimistic and picking the Cleveland Browns to win in the Dawg Pound Daily pick ’em pool. No regrets.

The Browns fell to 0-3 after a loss marred by turnovers and dropped passes, and now head home to take on the 0-3 Cincinnati Bengals in a matchup to decide last-place in the AFC North.

Myles Garrett could potentially play, so at least there’s that.

But for now fans are still discussing the fallout from Week 3, and we did just that in the latest episode of the DPD Podcast.

A lot of talk focuses on the offense, but the defense didn’t help the cause by allowing 28 points to the Colts in the first half. Jacoby Brissett starting at quarterback was supposed to give the Browns the advantage, but he played out of his mind, or perhaps the Browns were just that bad.

The defense was able to step up in the second half, but by then the turnovers and the drops were adding up and drives were stalling before a few minutes could tick off the clock.

Dropping to 0-3 isn’t too unexpected, but it is frustrating. This team has been bad for so long it is hard to believe in true change when words are all we get instead of wins.

Will that change next week? I sure hope so.
