The Cleveland Browns were gifted a game against the lowly Detroit Lions and escaped their home stadium with a 13-10 victory.

There’s a number of us who never take winning for granted.  For too long, we saw too many losses. But as far as victories go, they don’t get more depressing than this.

The Lions have no passing game to speak of, and as it turns out, neither do the Browns! #Facepalm.

This thing was close–too close. Try 13-7, in the fourth quarter. Unbelievably, the Lions had a chance, especially after Baker Mayfield’s second interception.

The Browns escaped, and I really mean escaped with a three-point victory over the doormat of the league. The quarterback is salty and his wife his questioning the team’s toughness. Now, they’ve got to beat the first-place Ravens. Is Santa at the mall yet, because I’ve got a big time ask.

There was good, bad, and there was really bad, like our quarterback being booed in the fourth quarter of a win.

I blame expectations. We’d have been thrilled if the Browns were 6-5 a year ago at this time. Here’s 3 Browns whose stock are down in defeat.
