After three weeks of riding high, the Cleveland Browns finally crashed back down to Earth. Not only did they let a 10-point halftime lead disappear, they watched a city’s faith follow it right out the window.
The Detroit Lions scored 24 unanswered points in the second half and dominated Cleveland in every aspect of the game. As the players left the field, they were showered in a cascade of boos and angry jeers. The only fans who remained in the stands as the clock hit zero wore blue jerseys.
Before they hit the road, however, we must look back at their 31-17 loss to the Lions Sunday.
