Having entered today’s game at 2-5 and needing a win, the Cleveland Browns are playing just as poorly as they have all season.
The offense can’t do anything, as usual, and the defense just surrendered an embarrassing 75-yard touchdown catch-and-run to Denver Broncos rookie tight end Noah Fant.
Fant is talented, so we’re not slighting him here. But the effort of the Cleveland defense on this play left so much to be desired.
Just look at these missed tackles. We counted three.
Noah Fant WILL NOT GO DOWN!
75-yards for the Broncos touchdown!!

From a second angle, you can see Cleveland safety Jermaine Whitehead get blasted by Fant and put on his backside.
At least he put his body on the line though.

There is still a lot of football left to be played. Cleveland can still get things turned around.
Right now, their season is hanging on by a thread thinner than the Rocky Mountain air in Denver.
