It is always the darkest before dawn, and perhaps the Browns and their fans are finally about to turn a corner that has taken 26 losses in their last 27 games to turn. At 0-11 it looks bleak, but this season may have a very positive outcome after all. Sounds crazy doesn’t it? Allow me to explain.
The Browns have looked awful at times this year, only leading in a handful of games all season. It appears they can do certain things right on both sides of the ball, but still have not been able to put together a full game. The run game has shown flashes at times, such as Sunday against the Bengals and portions of the games against Detroit and Minnesota.
DeShone Kizer has proven he can go a game without turning the ball over, such as Sunday against the Bengals. This was the second time he saw the Cincinnati defense and his numbers were drastically better.
These may seem like small victories, but they are also building blocks, and for a winless team they need to take advantage of any positive they can find. The question remains, when do these growing pains and building blocks turn into victories? The answer is soon, in fact. It is right around the corner.
This team has proven they will continue to fight for Hue Jackson, and unlike a team loaded with veterans that may pack it in at 0-11, this is the youngest team in the NFL and remain confident and hungry despite the issues at hand.
The Browns will have five chances left this season to get that elusive win, and here it is, game by game, reason by reason, why they may just get multiple wins.
