A few things we know with absolute certainty, Cleveland:
• The Cleveland Browns are heading to Buffalo, New York, for a Week-15 matchup against Tyrod Taylor and the 6-7 Bills.
• The Browns are currently 0-13, and inching closer and closer to a “perfect,” winless season.
• It’s going to be a cold, snowy Sunday, with temperatures in Buffalo hovering around 20 degrees and a 50% chance of snow.
• The Browns will be wearing white jerseys, brown pants and orange socks for the frigid faceoff.
All things considered, it’s going to be a long Sunday afternoon for Cody Kessler, Hue Jackson and the Browns. Thank God Swagger (and what’s left of the Browns’ fan base) doesn’t travel much for road games.
I’m calling this uniform look, which the team announced via Twitter, the Frost Bites for several reasons. First… well, it’s cold, and it’s going to be even colder spending Sunday afternoon getting pummeled by the Bills in the snow. Secondly, the Browns will be wearing white jerseys, which will blend in nicely with the snow, and finally, let’s face it, this team bites… and not in the way a dog does.
Interestingly enough, of the heels of a seven-point loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14, some Buffalo fans are calling for coach Rex Ryan to bench starting quarterback Taylor in favor of E.J. Manuel (who?) or former Ohio State Buckeye Cardale Jones to take on the Browns. Isn’t the idea of a fan base—whose team has almost as many wins as losses—being up in arms over facing the Browns just kind of silly?
What would we Cleveland fans give to be sitting 6-7 right now and about to play a winless disaster? Buffalo, if you’re listening, no need to stir up a quarterback controversy. You’re playing the Frost Bites. Everything will be just fine.
As always, here’s your weekly recap of the uniform looks of the Browns’ “perfect” season:
