The "factory of sadness" cranked out another disappointing loss for Cleveland in Week 1. The Browns had a 16-10 lead late in the fourth quarter, but the Eagles stole the victory on their final drive.
Philadelphia were the nine-point favorites over the Browns coming into the game, but Cleveland must not have received that memo. The Browns played competitive football and even had a legitimate shot at winning.
However, in true Cleveland fashion, the Browns were unable to put away the Eagles.
The defense was amazing, forcing five turnovers and hassling QB Michael Vick for the entire game. The offense countered with four turnovers of its own, which could be cited as the main reason Cleveland lost.
The Browns will have a shot at redemption as the team travels to battle the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Cleveland could almost be considered a favorite based on the 44-13 beating suffered by the Bengals at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
This will be a good game. Here are four things Browns fans should expect in Week 2.
