The Cleveland Browns got off to a quick start, against the Baltimore Ravens in game-2 of the 2016 season. For the fans of the team, nothing could be better than a win over the Ravens. But that wasn't to be.
The Cleveland Browns defense stood by and watched helplessly, as the Ravens scored 25 nu-answered points to hand the Browns their 2nd loss of the season. I know it's hard to believe, especially with Ray Horton working in the role of defensive coordinator.
But this team may possibly have the worse defense in the NFL this year. Even though the Browns are ranked at number 20 in total team defense, I'd say before long they will be one of the worse in the NFL.
I know this isn't going to make me popular among Browns fans, but anyone who can see, should be able to see this team has no defense. Another thing is, they let a lot of good defensive players go just before the season started.
The team has trouble keeping top-notch players. I'm not saying they were all top-notch players, but a few of them could have really helped this team. On the offensive side of the ball, the team lost Alex Mack to free agency.
When the Browns were trying to get a first down lat in the game, while they had a one point lead still, Irving got called for a penalty. That erase the gain and helped to erase any chances of the Browns winning.
Then there's the problem of the Browns not scoring another point after the 1st quarter. The offense was stopped for 3-quarters folks. This team needs a lot of work. Lets hope the front office can give this coach the time he is going to need to get this team right.
