Five Cleveland Browns whose stock dropped following another loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, a Week 8 blowout at Heinz Field.
The Cleveland Browns lost again to the Pittsburgh Steelers in this Week 8 matchup. The two teams played to a tie earlier in the year, but the Steelers showed decisively why they’re the better team.
At 2-5-1, life for the Cleveland Browns will continue to get hard, especially with second-year phenom Patrick Mahomes set to drop dimes all over FirstEnergy Stadium.
After the Chiefs, the Browns have to deal with the Falcons, a team surrounding a lot of points through the air. Easy, though. The Steelers weren’t exactly rewriting the book on how what a secondary should look like this season.
In what was the Browns’ biggest game of the season, the team failed to produce touchdowns and the squad we saw beat the Baltimore Ravens a few weeks back seems like a memory from a season long ago.
In a beatdown like this, mistakes are made, but with coaching jobs apparently riding on what happens around Browns’ Town, you’d expect the Browns to come out and do more than churn out a dud against their supposed great rival.
The Browns have now dropped 15 straight to the Steelers at Heinz Field. No one in Pittsburgh considers this a rivalry.
And for further embarrassment, the Browns have not lost 24 in a row on the road. One more loss, and they’ll match the Detroit Lions for road futility.
Here’s who’s stock dropped following the shameful defeat.
