Finishing 0-16 hurts Browns players more than fans realize |Jeff Schudel

Browns' last chance for a win literally slipped through Corey Coleman's fingers

The Browns finished the season in Pittsburgh last season and were beaten by backup quarterback Landry Jones, 27-24, in overtime. "There's nothing else to say".

In a hit-and-miss game, Cleveland Brown quarterback DeShone Kizer scored a big hit with a flawless pitch-and-catch to wideout Rashard Higgins. "It's tough. That play will be remembered".

There is nothing fluky about the 0-16 record. Midnight and "Happy New Year" will carry special meaning for McCourty and his teammates. "I'm kind of exhausted of so many people saying - even within the organization - that we don't have the guys or we need more guys". Despite his team's victory, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said, "We fell short, I fell short".

After the Sashi-led front office passed on Carson Wentz and DeShaun Watson - two transformative signal-callers - it's a rock-solid bet the Browns use one of their two first-rounders on a quarterback.

Giants 18, Washington 10: Orleans Darkwa rushed for a career-high 154 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown run, and Eli Manning threw for a touchdown as host NY (3-13) snapped a five-game losing streak and gave interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo his first win since replacing the fired Ben McAdoo on December 4.

"I don't think we're way, way off as many people think we are", Jackson said.

These young assets have shown flashes, but all played their part during a season that saw the roster crumble in key moments while Jackson offered up a litany of baffling in-game coaching decisions. "A team like that we got to bury".

"I thought Kev said it best". "I think I'm just the guy to do it".

The interception Kizer threw was his 22nd of the season.

Rookie safety Jabrill Peppers wasn't around previous year, and isn't beaten down by 0-15.

The Browns went 1-15 a season ago.

"The standards I set for myself are higher than this - higher than (reporters), higher than the coaches, higher than Mr. Haslam and Mr. Dorsey", Kizer said.

"No, I'm going to give that pep talk, " he said.

And for the 16th time in 2017, the Browns walked off the field searching for answers that are as elusive now as they've been at any point since the franchise's return to the National Football League almost two decades ago. They went 2-14 in 2009, 6-10 in 2010, 10-6 in 2011 and 4-12 in 2012.

In that way, maybe Jackson is right that nobody could have done what he did over the last two years.
