The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including former NFL quarterback Tony Romo predicting the offensive struggles
It was a frustrating game for fans as they watched the Cleveland Browns defense rise to the occasion despite being severely shorthanded. Facing one of the best offenses in the game without four starters in the secondary, the Browns somehow held the Los Angeles Rams to 20 points.
They slowed down Todd Gurley and even forced a few turnovers on quarterback Jared Goff. Due to their play, it gave Cleveland a shot late but they were unable to complete the comeback and lost 20-13.
Cleveland’s offense was clearly to blame as they have been struggling mightily so far this season — something that was predicted by former NFL quarterback and current CBS broadcaster Tony Romo before the season began.

Cleveland Browns News
"“In just about every preseason interview Romo gave where he was asked about the hype surrounding Browns, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback avoided popular talking points like Odell Beckham Jr. or Baker Mayfield. Instead, Romo focused on the offensive line.”"
So far, it looks as though Romo was right about the offensive line, although that unit is far from the only one causing the Browns issues. This offense as a whole has a lot of work to do and it doesn’t look to be an easy fix.
"“Cleveland Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens says he made a bad decision when he called a draw play on a 4th and 9 when the Browns were driving for a potential tying score on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams.The play resulted in a handoff to running back Nick Chubb, who gained only two yards, handing the ball back over to the Rams, who eventually won 20–13.”"
Sadly, this wasn’t the only bad call on the night for Kitchens. His playcalling throughout the loss was suspect, but this one clearly was the most confusing.
Even before the game was played, Dan Justik was claiming the offensive woes weren’t all on the line. That proved to be prophetic after watching their Week 3 game.
