The Cleveland Browns had an encouraging start to the season with a 2-2-1 record in their first five games. This had fans optimistic since they had eclipsed their combined win total from the previous two years. For some, the playoffs were even a though. But since then Browns have struggled mightily.
Cleveland has lost their last four games and fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley. If things weren’t bad enough, two key defensive players were added to the IR today in linebacker Christian Kirksey and cornerback E.J. Gaines.
So much for all that playoff chatter.
