Browns remain winless, lose to Chargers 19-10

The Browns came into Sunday without a win, and will walk out of it the same way. Despite a valiant effort against a surging Chargers team, the Browns fell in Los Angeles 19-10. The game was highlighted by the return of Browns’ star receiver Josh Gordon, who hadn’t seen the field since the 2014 season while under suspension. The loss drops the Browns to 1-27 in the Hue Jackson era, and offered little relief to a fan base longing for some signs of hope.

Quick Recap

This one was a back forth contest right off the bat. The Browns fell behind 6-0 after two Charger field goals. The Browns then answered as DeShone Kizer hit David Njoku on a 28 yard touchdown strike to make the score 7-6 late in the second quarter. The Chargers would tack on a late Travis Koons field goal before half to push the score to 9-7.

The second half saw the Browns control the field offensively again, marching down the field multiple times, only to see their opportunities end in field goals or turnovers. The Charges found pay dirt early in the third quarter as Rivers connected with Keenan Allen from seven yards out to make it 16-7 in favor of the home team. The teams would exchange field goals, and the Browns last effort chances both ended in turnovers as Kizer fumbled first, then followed with an interception to end the game late.

The Chargers out-gained the Browns 429 yards to 291 yards and had 23 first downs to the Browns 17. Kizer struggled for the most part, missing several key opportunities in the downfield passing game that could have helped the Browns find their first win. He finished 15 of 32 for 215 yards with one touchdown and one interception, and one fumble lost. Rivers led the Chargers going 31 of 43 for 344 yards and a touchdown.  The Chargers controlled the time of possession with 34:57 to the Browns 25:03.

    Yeah, hell sucks. But dammit, the Monty Python-like farce of the new Browns has made it all worthwhile. Woof woof!

  • RGB

    Watchable mediocrity.

    So close.

  • Mr. Clandestine
  • JM85

    Well they didn’t get blown out. Moral victory!

  • RGB

    The Process works!
    25 years later, the Bucs won the Super Bowl!

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    But they never got a parade first. This Browns team might have them beat there.

  • Snitket

    Kizer is a joke, hideous accuracy. Hue should be in jail for pushing this dope on us but I’ll settle for fired.

  • Skulb

    To digress completely, have you watched At Last the 1948 Show? It’s most of Python and Marty Feldman from the early 60s. Very funny.

  • Garry_Owen

    Yeah! Why didn’t Hue push for that other guy that the Browns drafted this year to play QB?! Can’t believe he’s playing the QB that the team drafted! He’s such a criminal loser! Fire him! Jail him! Lynch him! Deep fry him!

  • BenRM

    Thank you for this. I hadn’t had coffee before I read his comment. I didn’t want to respond before I had consumed the requisite amount of caffeine for normal human interaction.

    Your comment has me covered.

  • Garry_Owen

    I was mid-coffee, but let it fly anyway, figuring “normal human interaction” was off the table.

  • RGB

    Oh, anybody see Dawson’s 54-yarder?
    Just sayin.

  • Garry_Owen

    Or AT LEAST Hue should have traded for Tom Brady. The fact that he didn’t means he’s not worthy of oxygen.

  • BenRM

    The vacuum of space is the only place for a coach like Hue.

  • BenRM

    I did not. But I saw our buddy travis coons all sunday!

  • RGB

    Anybody catch Schobert’s shoulder sideswipe to the head of Rivers?
    He didn’t get a flag, but c’mon man.

  • Saggy

    you misspelled “4”.

  • Saggy

    If Hue would just let someone qualified to call the plays on offense this team might actually have a chance to improve.

    Just no rhythm, rhyme, or reason for what he’s trying to do.

  • CBiscuit

    hapless hue hastily hashbrowned by hungry hangman

  • JM85

    This should be a featured comment.

  • tsm

    Now that he had 2 capable WR’s, his lack of accuracy was glaring. Not ready to write him off, but he needs to improve.

  • Petefranklin

    If that is Vinnie, he wasn’t on those Lousy TB teams of those years.

  • Petefranklin

    First game I actually watched in a long time, to see Flash. What was up with the read option on 3rd and 11?
