Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson continues to reach lows never before seen by a head coach in the history of the NFL.

The Cleveland Browns lost on Sunday, which is no big surprise as they had done that 13 previous times before yesterday.

The defeat dropped the Browns to 0-14 on the season as head coach Hue Jackson continues to set coaching records that may never be broken.

Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens means the Browns are now 1-29 under Jackson and the loss extended Jackson’s NFL record for the worst start by a head coach in NFL history. And that is a history that dates all the way back to 1920.

Sunday’s game was also the home finale and the Browns finished the 2017 campaign at 0-8, just the second time in franchise history that the club did not win a home game in a season.

The offense only managed to score 10 points against the Ravens, meaning the Browns have now scored fewer than 20 points 20 times under Jackson. The Browns are averaging just 15.7 points per game with Jackson serving as his own offensive coordinator, which puts him on par with former head coach Eric Mangini’s teams for offensive ineptitude.

Mangini’s teams averaged 16.1 points per game from 2009 to 2010. Of course, they also managed to win 10 games, while Jackson is still looking for his second win.

And through it all Jackson continues to blame everyone but himself for the problems.

The Browns now have two chances remaining to avoid going 0-16 and seeing Jackson tie another record as just the second head coach to finish a 16-game season without a win.

It’s been quite a run by the alleged quarterback whisperer, and if owner Jimmy Haslam is to be believed, Jackson will get another chance in 2018 to further cement his place as the worst head coach in NFL history.

Boy, won’t that be fun?

3 takeaways as the Browns fall to 0-14

The Cleveland Browns have not won a game since December 24, 2016. That is, unless you count those exciting preseason victories. The 14th loss of the season provided a bit of excitement, but it was short-lived. Here are three things that stand out from the 14th loss of the 2017 season.

Hue Jackson questions if DeShone Kizer will “ever get it” (cleveland.com)

"Hue Jackson has tried a lot of tough love to coax the best out of DeShone Kizer, but wondered out loud for the first time after Sunday’s 27-10 loss to the Ravens if the rookie has what it takes."

Could Browns trade Hue Jackson to the Bengals? (PFT)

"The Browns have been sending out mixed signals regarding whether they want to keep coach Hue Jackson. With Marvin Lewis reportedly out in Cincinnati (although he denies that he’s leaving), a theory/hypothesis is emerging in some league circles. What if the Browns try to trade Jackson to the Bengals?"

"The elephant in the room delivered in a big way, but turned out the same way for the Steelers. The Steelers and New England played a game that lived up to its hype and then some Sunday.

"It’s difficult to remember a time when Seattle looked so miserable on the football field. Officially, seven Seahawks were listed as inactive, but it looked more like 53."

There’s no denying it — the 49ers have a franchise-changing duo (The Mercury News)

"The most important duo in football — and perhaps in all of professional sports — is the pairing of an NFL head coach and his team’s quarterback. It’s only been three games, but after Sunday’s come-from-behind 25-23 win over the Tennessee Titans at Levi’s Stadium, it’s becoming undeniably evident that the 49ers have a special battery on their hands in head coach Kyle Shanahan and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo."
