Browns go 0-16, joining 2008 Lions in historic National Football League low

He worked to his left and flicked the ball to receiver Corey Coleman all alone on the sideline, well past the first-down marker. Two minutes later, the clock hit zero.

When the Pittsburgh Steelers escaped Cleveland with a 21-18 victory in the 2017 season opener on September 10, they stressed there was no need to panic despite a largely "meh" performance.

The Browns became the second team in National Football League history to finish a season 0-16 with a 28-24 loss to the Steelers Sunday at Heinz Field. "We're not just going to turn it on in two weeks", Mitchell said.

On a different note, we can not wait for Hue Jackson to live up to his promise to take a dip in Lake Erie, which is, you know, a frozen tundra right now. We're not gonna give up. Is it disappointing? Hell yeah it's disappointing. We're going to fix this.

Jimmy Haslam cited "great leadership" and "magic" as a coordinator as reasons to keep Jackson.

Impetuous owner Jimmy Haslam fired vice president of football operations Sashi Brown on December 7, but made a decision to keep head coach Hue Jackson despite Jackson's 1-31 coaching record with the Browns. "Unfortunately we couldn't get the W, but you could see how close we were". A lot of coaches would have said "uncle" after past year.

He added: "I don't think it's fair on any National Football League team to be in this situation".

Haslam hired John Dorsey as general manager the same day he fired Brown. Despite that miscue, Cleveland's defense held on fourth and goal from the one.

"I wish everyone had a JuJu in their life", he said. "The two years of this has been tough". I don't think the average person could go through that. I mean, you saw it with the play with (Vontaze) Burfict. "I don't know. awful thing to be a part of". I'm not surprised about the outcome today.

All signs seemingly pointed to Jackson's departure from Cleveland with the conclusion of the season. The Browns' first two scores were a result of big plays. Twice in the first half they drew third-down defensive penalties that extended Pittsburgh drives. "That is going to be a little time".

The first two ended with turnovers, giving Cleveland an NFL-high 41 on the season. Kizer had multiple dropped interceptions as he completed just one pass on his 14 dropbacks under pressure and had a passer rating of 0.0 when Pittsburgh's pass-rush got to him. That's not going to happen.

Still coach Hue Jackson stresses while the Browns are winless, they are not hopeless. Jackson plans to be along for the ride.

"As people know I'm a fan of Coach Hue", Jones said, via The Athletic's Zac Jackson. "I truly believe that".

Pittsburgh - which is the No. 2 seed in the AFC and will host a game in the divisional round January 14 - never trailed while beating its closest rival for a seventh straight time. His 96-yard kickoff return for a TD Sunday, where he ran through a handful of would-be tacklers and then outran the rest, was his eighth TD of the year, his second of 96+ yards and Pittsburgh's first kickoff return TD in seven years. The Steelers broke their team sack record of 55 (1994, 2001) with six sacks to give them 56 this season. Despite the victory, the Steelers will be the second seed in the AFC playoffs. Denver, 6. New York Jets, 7.

Not much has changed for the Cleveland Browns in the three years Josh Gordon was serving an indefinite suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The Steelers led 21-14 at halftime.
