The Cleveland Browns showcased some familiar problems fans have seen all season on offense in the Week 6 loss to the Houston Texans.

Another week, another bludgeoning by a Cleveland Browns opponent. I’ve been saying since the Cincinnati Bengals game in Week 4 that I hope this is rock bottom, yet each week this team moves further and further away from being a marginal NFL franchise.

This week may have been the nail in the Sashi Brown front office coffin, as reports from Pro Football Talk discuss rumblings that there are changes coming to the front office.

What that means for Hue Jackson and the rest of the staff is unknown, but if history is any indication it would be a safe assumption that the Browns will be sporting a shiny new regime by next April’s draft.

Yes, Sashi Brown accumulated draft capital in creative ways, but passing on Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson will be black marks that stand out mightily. They are just more additions to the “what could have been” list of talent that they let slip through their fingers. But good thing they got those draft picks.

Because the Browns were out of this game so early, it’s tough to remember that they actually played on Sunday as the performance was forgettable (and that’s being nice). Inadequate quarterback play and ill-fated turnovers flipped the momentum to the Texans early on and they never gave it back.

Here’s what I took away from this week’s game against Houston.
