Browns, Steelers face off in season finale

Browns, Steelers face off in season finale

But with Sunday's 28-24 loss in Pittsburgh, they joined the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only teams in National Football League history to lose all 16 games.

Or at the very least a play that would keep the Browns from going 0-16 on the season.

The Browns (0-15) have one final chance to avoid becoming the fifth team in National Football League history to go winless in a regular season.

Dorsey will be armed with up to $100 million in salary cap space to overhaul the Browns, who have recorded 15 double-digit loss seasons since 1999 and are 4-44 over the past three years and 20-76 since Haslam agreed to buy them in 2012. The Browns will have the first and fourth overall pick in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft.

On the negative side, the Steelers took three points off the board on their third possession as a result of the Browns being offside.

It was the first kickoff return for a touchdown in seven years for the Steelers, and Smith-Schuster finished the season with 58 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns. I just think these situations are hard when you don't win. It's pure speculation, but we think this gets to the heart of issue with Harrison. "When Antonio Brown isn't here, we take his plate and eat off of it". But darkness is a friend of all who dwell in the Dawg Pound, and it's hard to imagine that's going to change any time soon.

Reports said Jim Caldwell of the Detroit Lions, John Fox of the Chicago Bears, Bruce Arians of the Arizona Cardinals and Marv Lewis of the Cincinnati Bengals are goners - although in Arians' case it might be his own decision to leave. I think Hue has well-documented issues and I worry about his ceiling, but I don't think he's as bad as he's been the past two seasons.

CA: Here We Go Again: FAA Investigating Another SFO Landing Mishap
The controller feared another plane that had just landed might still be on the runway, but the Air Canada jet landed safely. The FAA has also changed rules over the summer for night-time landings and staffing at the airport's control tower.

Brown injured his calf during the first half of the Steelers' loss to New England two weeks ago. This team has never not given me effort, they've never not worked. As a lifelong fan, I really shouldn't be surprised.

Even without starters including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Le'Veon Bell, wide receiver Antonio Brown - who were inactive as Pittsburgh prepares for the postseason - the Steelers moved the ball easily. Jackson called it "awful" and said the label will put the Browns "in a war for talent on every front", including convincing a player like UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen that the Browns would be a good team to join.

Chris McNeil, a season ticket holder from Granville, Ohio, has planned a 0-16 parade around FirstEnergy Stadium for January 6.

The Browns' only win in two seasons came over San Diego on Christmas Eve of 2016. Bell trails Los Angeles Rams star Todd Gurley by 14 yards and Kansas City rookie Kareem Hunt by just 1. Despite clawing their way back to 21-21, and then entering the fourth quarter down just four, the Browns found a way to Browns it up once again.

It's a rainbow Pittsburgh has spent the better part of 50 years avoiding, often at the expense of their closest rival. Fellow Browns fans chipped in donations to cover the cost for everything from security to portable toilets to insurance.

Garrett was played well against the Steelers, finishing with a sack and QB hurry rushing the passer while also forcing a Landry Jones fumble. The #6 seeded Bills are the only AFC Wild Card Weekend team that can not come to Pittsburgh in the next round.
