Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know
Week 8 was the halfway point for the Cleveland Browns and it ended in a frustrating way for them. The Browns played the Las Vegas Raiders and were handed a 16-6 loss in a game that was as ugly as the weather the game was played in.
Still, a 5-3 first half isn’t bad at all, especially considering this team hasn’t had a winning season since 2007. But don’t tell that to the players on this roster.
Apparently, they’re not satisfied with simply doing better than they have in the past. This Browns team wants to win every time out and this latest loss has them “pissed off” according to quarterback Baker Mayfield.
His frustration and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

"“A new environment could enable a healthy Beckham to excel again as a No. 1 receiver next season. Which potential destinations makes the most sense? Not every franchise is suitable for a player like Beckham on or off the field, and his $15.75 million 2021 salary could be a factor. “"
Gagnon is just one of many writers who think that OBJ could be in a different jersey next season. It should be interesting to see if the offense still struggles without him if these takes continue or die down.
Matt McFatridge knows the trade deadline is right around the corner and he has one player from all 31 teams that the Browns can try and land in a trade.
Elliot Kennel looks at a stat shared by R.J. Bell that shows Baker Mayfield is a pretty good quarterback when the game is tight — which is contrary to what many want to believe about him.
