The mistakes by the Cleveland Browns on a weekly cannot be fixed and it showed once again today.
Between the penalties and mistakes by both teams, you can see why neither team, especially the Cleveland Browns is going anywhere this year. The one sustained drive was by the Browns but they fumbled inside the Jets’ five yard-line as if it was on cue.
Unfortunately, that has been a typical problem this team has had all season — Murphy’s law, whatever could go wrong will.

Not just in Week 5 but through all five games, Cleveland’s opponents for the most part aren’t beating the Browns. Rather the brown and orange are beating themselves!
Sunday’s game included more self-inflicted wounds as a holding call was followed by a missed Zane Gonzalez field goal for example.
After an interception by Jason McCourty, DeShone Kizer threw an interception on the Jets’ five. Thus, even more self-inflicted turnovers. These are the same problems he got benched for while at Notre Dame!
To make matter worse, Gonzalez missed a second shorter field goal just before halftime. The Jets in turn moved into Browns territory and on the last play kick a 57 yard field goal.
On a positive not, there was a Myles Garrett sighting and he got a sack on his first play! He didn’t stop there as he finished with two total sacks.
Kevin Hogan did replace Kizer and drove the Browns for a touchdown thanks to a great one-handed catch by David Njoku. However, Cleveland lead did not last long as Hogan threw an interception and the Jets scored in a couple of plays later.
Both sides of the ball for Cleveland underwhelmed and once again their defense fell apart and as a result the Jets went 97 yards with ease to go up 17-7. The Browns’ defense disappeared late in the game like they have in the past, while the offense showed its youth. Both are mistake prone!
Johnson is something special. Although Cleveland wasn’t going to win, he did make it interesting as he took a swing pass and weaved his way 41 yards for a touchdown to make the score 17-14!
Well Browns fans, can you say number one pick in the draft yet? It sure looks like that will be the case, to go along with maybe a winless season.
