The Cleveland Browns are second team in National Football League to complete winless season

12 January 2018

The 2008 Detroit Lions are the only ever side to have gone winless in a 16-game National Football League season. That game came on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Surprisingly, depsite coaching the team to a 1-31 record since taking the reins in 2016, head coach Hue Jackson will not be let go by the franchise, having the club's confidence to coach on into the 2018 season.

Patriots 26, Jets 6: Dion Lewis ran for 93 yards and a touchdown and caught a scoring pass as host New England (13-3) clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs as the top seed in the AFC by beating NY (5-11).

Peppers showed what a weapon he can be in this game, though, picking off Landry Jones and showing nice chops as a kick returner as well.

Even after the inaugural interception by Jabrill Peppers, Cleveland's offense could not get out of its own way! Like the Lions before them, they can evolve from winless to winners in a short amount time. He caught all but one of his targets and had three plays of 20-plus yards.

Jones drove the Steelers 72 yards on the opening drive for a touchdown. Four of their 16 losses were by three points, five by nine points or fewer.

The defense was excellent in the opening quarter. He might never start another game for the Browns. By several National Football League insider accounts, they can expect Antonio Brown will be reasonably healthy when they take the field again on January 13 or 14. Cleary, it was a hard year for our players and obviously for our fans, as well. Gordon beat cornerback Joe Haden as Haden was looking into the backfield at a possible reverse play. We can't say we blame him because we do it all the time, but that is the first time we've noticed it by a broadcaster.

Kizer finished with 314 yards passing and two touchdowns to Rashard Higgins, but also threw a fourth-quarter interception, his NFL-leading 22nd of the season.

Six Quakes in One Hour Hit Iran-Iraq Border
According to Iran's official news agency IRNA, the quake rocked the village of Hojdaknear the city of Ravar. Iran´s western province of Kermanshah was hit by a strong natural disaster on Thursday, state TV reported.

Kizer hurt the Steelers with both his arm and legs. Ben Roethlisberger also reportedly told radio station 93.7 that Brown was improving through rehab.

The Browns rallied, took the Steelers to the wire, but couldn't come all the way back for their first win. Rookie Myles Garrett, James Burgess, and rookie safety Kai Nacua all get their first crack at the Steelers.

Things didn't get much better in 2017. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley did a fantastic job calling the plays as the Steelers nearly had a 50/50 split between running (28) and passing (27) plays of their 55 offensive snaps. The team's newly crowned Rookie of the Year has stepped in for the injured team MVP, Antonio Brown, and is piling up big numbers. Nix, who had one previous carry in his career, accumulated a negative one-yard on the two carries.

It was a lost season distilled to one play, filled with hope and achingly familiar anguish for a franchise that's known little else over the last two decades. The 167 total return yards on six returns are a season-high for the team. The Cleveland defense hasn't been very bad, allowing just 25.5 points and 338.9 yards per game.

And it was four extra points that gave him the record on Sunday.

The Steelers will be off next week.

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

Many are enraged that Jackson has returned, and he knows there's only one way to satisfy them.
