The Cleveland Browns are facing another must-win game today, and will once again be without several key players on defense.

The Cleveland Browns need a win. Sound familiar?

The 0-3 Browns welcome the 0-3 Cincinnati Bengals to FirstEnergy Stadium today in desperate need of a win to calm everyone down and stop the parallels to the 2016 season.

There was some hope that we would see Myles Garrett make his debut today, but alas he is back on the inactive list, along with some other key players.

Garrett joins Danny Shelton and Jamie Collins on the list, opening some holes on the defense. The Browns have been without Collins for several weeks now, as he remains out with a concussion.

The other somewhat notable name on the list is Sammie Coates, but with all the dysfunction surrounding the receiving corps, I would not be surprised if he doesn’t do much for the team this season. Where is Richard Mullaney when you need him?

The Browns are 0-3, which means the discussion surrounding today’s game will take on a certain sense of urgency. Not that things have been calm the past three weeks anyway.

Be sure to comment on this post to get the conversation going between you and other Browns fans. I say this every week, but perhaps this is the week we can start having some positive things to say during the game. Holding a lead for any amount of time would be a nice start.
