Woe-for-16: Browns finish winless season with loss to Steelers

Browns-Steelers-Football-4

Browns Nation, which has been reduced to tattered, Third World status, didn't know whether to cry or wind their watches - to coin a phrase used by legendary Pittsburgh Penguins announcer Mike Lange.

Despite having the opportunity to end the 2017-18 National Football League regular season with a win over the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, who were without star players Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell, a crucial drop by Corey Coleman deep in scoring territory sealed their fate. I think our players know it. "There's nothing else to say". It set up Johnson's two-yard touchdown run, after which he prayed for and paid tribute to injured Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier.

Smith-Schuster essentially earned the team such a lofty grade himself, with his exhilarating touchdown return that came immediately following a Browns touchdown that knotted up the game at 21-21 early in the third quarter.

Coleman's drop followed the fumble and interception - three straight turnovers with a chance to take the lead.

With due respect to the Lions (0-16), the 1899 Cleveland Spiders (20-134) and 2003 Tigers (43-119), the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers (9-73), and the 1974-75 Washington Capitals (8-67-5), a franchise mismanaged worse than Enron is in a class of its own.

Not much has changed for the Cleveland Browns in the three years Josh Gordon was serving an indefinite suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

"This (memory) will last forever", Coleman said. "I said it the other day, I'm just as big of a part of this as anybody", Jackson said. Trevon Coley, a first-year player who was with the Ravens last year, emerged as a starter at defensive tackle thanks to Simmons' coaching. I'm not saying this is gonna be easy, but I am confident we will do this.

Need More winners against the spread? The Browns had a competitive game with the Steelers in Week 1, losing 21-18 at home.

Speaking about her stay inside the house, which definitely has its own challenges, Barrie said, "It's a new adventure for me". Tuesday evening saw the launch of Celebrity Big Brother's "Year Of The Woman" as an all female cast entered the house.

When Hue Jackson was hired less than two years ago, he was greeted in the lobby of the Browns headquarters by cheering team employees. However, it seems he still has a powerful believer in Browns owner Jimmy Haslam.

Jackson remained somewhat defiant in the face of the NFL's second-ever 0-16 campaign. This year, they finished the job, assuring the "Perfect Season" parade will go on as planned Saturday. He also ran six times for 61 yards and drove the Browns 58 yards down to the Pittsburgh 27-yard line with fewer than two minutes left. It'll be interesting to see if Jackson's ego will allow him to give up play-calling duties but he did say Monday that everything is being considered. We just don't have enough. "I promise you that". No one started the season thinking that this is how it would turn out.

The Browns tied the game on their opening possession of the second half. He said on December 7 Jackson will return as head coach and reaffirmed that commitment after the Browns fell to 0-16.

Bears head coach John Fox refused to take questions after his team's 23-10 loss at Minnesota on any subject except that game.

"It's very tough (to be 0-16)". "You don't want to hear about what you don't have. Only place to go is up", Uhl told CBS News over text message.

Cleveland is hoping to avoid joining an infamous group by going 0-16 for an National Football League season.

They join New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo, fired December 4, in unemployment.
