We already know that mistakes have filled yet another losing season for the NFL’s laughingstock that are the Cleveland Browns.
That was no more apparent than in the first half of Sunday’s season finale against the one-win Cincinnati Bengals.
With the game tied at seven in the first quarter, Cleveland had the tremendous idea to put 10 men on the field with the Bengals in a goal-to-go situation. The end result was a Joe Mixon touchdown to give Cincinnati a rare lead.
That certainly is a bold strategy for the Browns right there. No one on the sideline can count to 11?
It just speaks to the ineptitude of first-year head coach Freddie Kitchens, who has drawn the ire of star players this season.
Alas, it appears that his job is safe. That’s not great news for the long downtrodden Browns and their fans.
