The Cleveland Browns need to at least pick up one win in the final eight weeks to salvage any sort of progress from the 2017 season.

The Cleveland Browns had a bye week to remember, and there are still a few days to go before it is officially Week 10.

From a failed trade to Josh Gordon’s reinstatement, the Browns didn’t exactly take the week off.

But even with all the drama off the field, the Browns must find a way to come together and win some football games in the second half of the season. Well, at least one game.

Another 1-15 season isn’t what fans had in mind, but it appears to be where this team is headed. And it would certainly be better than an 0-16 season, but let’s not even talk about that until December at the earliest. My brain can’t handle the stress right now.

Hue Jackson doesn’t have the most talented roster in the NFL, and it may perhaps be the worst, but he has to utilize his talent to win a game. Whether that means starting Cody Kessler, Kevin Hogan, or sticking with DeShone Kizer, Jackson must find the right formula.

It is insane that we are once again talking about going all out to win one lousy game, but this is the current state of the Browns. We talk about that and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
