The play of the Cleveland Browns has been horrible. Could a short week change their fortune?

The Cleveland Browns lost this afternoon to the Dallas Cowboys and in turn making them 0-9. Cleveland is 0-9 for the first time since 1975 when they finished with a record of 3-11.

Three wins right now would feel like the Browns won the Super Bowl, but who are we kidding?

Cleveland will be have to have everything make a 360 degree turn for any hope of three wins. Instead, if fans saw even one win, then that would suffice for the time being given how unwatchable they have been at times.

The Browns have had opportunities to secure wins. However, for many reasons, that has not happened. Today was the most recent example after initially starting strong, but once again the wheels fell off quickly.

Cleveland is very young and relying on inexperienced players is not fun. Working through a rebuild, this sort of season should be expected, but some sort of experience should have been seen by now.

The way the Browns have taken on this season needs to change. Now would any change to approaching the season make their season end up any differently? No, that is not going happen. What could be adjusted however is the players’ belief that they can win and succeed.

Now, there is not much a team can really change in the middle of their season, but outside resources can be a blessing. For Cleveland, that mean a change in their schedule.

In Week 10, the Browns will be playing in prime time this Thursday. For this week’s Thursday Night Football game, Cleveland will go on the road to face the Baltimore Ravens. This will also be Cleveland’s lone appearance in a prime time game this season.

There will plenty of negativity surrounding the team on a bigger stage leading up to and during the game. Whether that be jokes, comments, pictures, people will make fun of Cleveland. However, the severity could be limited and that will be determined by their play. Despite the inevitable, the Browns are due for something to go right for them.

Cleveland should be chopping at the bits for Thursday’s game. For once, they do not have to play on a Sunday. Obviously it will be tougher getting ready for a game in the middle of the week, but they have not done anything anyways on the weekends.

The Browns struggle winning games within their division. Still, they barely lost to Baltimore in Week 2. A change of schedule could do wonders for Cleveland. Like many of you, I am fed up with Cleveland’s lack of ability executing fundamentals, as well as their inability to be anywhere near consistent.

The Browns are in a very disappointing and difficult spot, but we need to believe their process will end up working out. Although it would only be a small part to their season, changing up their schedule and winning in front of a larger audience should add to the Browns’ confidence level.

In turn, a better second half of the season happens. Sure it is unlikely, but that is a way to make this season more of positive for both the Browns and their fans.

I mentioned before that Cleveland’s best chance at getting a win is versus the Buffalo Bills but now that is not such a sure thing. Baltimore will be coming off of an impressive win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and will be overlooking Cleveland.

Meanwhile, the Browns have nothing to lose and should come out with a win in Week 10. It won’t be pretty and they still will play bad at times, but Cleveland is going to end up winning 17-13. That’s right, the Cleveland Browns’ losing streak is going to end next week.
