The Browns had a lot of fans believing that they could win against the Detroit Lions, but the game ended in familiar fashion on Sunday and left many embarrassed to be a Cleveland football fan.
A few devoted Browns fans ventured to Detroit for Sunday's disappointing 38-24 loss to the Lions, but pulled out the bags as the team piled on the critical mistakes.
Some fans were feeling optimistic after the Browns started with an early 10-0 lead in the first quarter behind a breakout overall rushing performance from the team and a solid outing from starter DeShone Kizer.
The Browns are actually looking like a normal team. They're going on drives, getting some chunk plays, scoring touchdowns. Good to see.— Mark Schwab (@MarkSchwab) November 12, 2017
Cleveland slipped into their old ways for the rest of the game with questionable play calling and missed opportunities. The hope for a win vanished quickly.
The Browns are now 0-9 for the season, the only winless team left in the NFL. The team's last win was on Christmas Eve 2016.
