The Cleveland Browns fought tough but fell to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, 23-17. Close, but no cigar.
It would be hard to argue that Jason Campbell being named the starting quarterback didn’t give the Browns a shot of life. It would also be hard to argue that wide receiver Davone Bess and left tackle Joe Thomas didn’t give the team the kiss of death.
Despite Campbell’s valiant performance, the Browns' inconsistencies as a young team were ultimately their downfall.
The Browns are now 3-5 on the year and have lost three straight games. They will head back home to face the Baltimore Ravens before getting their much-needed bye week.
Before they move ahead, however, let’s look back at the Browns' loss Sunday. Here are some takeaways from a game the Browns could have and should have stolen in Kansas City.
