The Cleveland Browns are getting ready for Thursday Night Football and the Daily Dawg Tags starts your day off right by bringing you the news you need to know
Prime Time football once again will feature our beloved Cleveland Browns as they host the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football. So far, the team is 0-1-1 on the young season, but this feels like a game they can win.
Then again, it felt like they could have won the past two games. It didn’t happen though as they settled for a tie in Week 1 and a loss in Week 2 — which hurt more because they had that game in hand all day until the end.
It’s an all too familiar feeling as head coach Hue Jackson is simply awful in close games — which is the featured story in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com looks at the coach’s record in these close contests and wonders what the deal is with his inability to pull out the win.

"Dorsey is correct when he says the team tends to play hard for Jackson. And no one is questioning Jackson’s dedication to the job.But at some point, the head coach has to find a way to win a game, especially a close game.Jackson has had 10 games decided by three or fewer points.His record is 1-8-1."
What’s worse than his record is the fact pointed to by Pluto that Jackson has survived not only the repeated close losses, but he’s also fired 18 assistant coaches in his short tenure. 18. And this is his third season. That’s asinine. Maybe the question isn’t if he’s cursed in close games, but maybe is he for some reason immortal?
"After two years of making us all wait, the Cleveland Browns are finally going to wear their Color Rush uniforms in an actual game. Although the Browns Color Rush uniforms were originally unveiled in September 2016, the team still hasn’t worn them."
This article has a link to the team’s preview of the uniform on their Twitter page. It’s sure to get people talking and it looks better than most color rush uniforms.
