It wasn't their first loss, but it was the first game where they really looked overmatched in a lot of ways.
Though the gap in the score wasn't that bad in the end, it was a very rough go for the Browns on Thursday night. The torrential downpour, a freak play, and some questionable calls by the officials certainly didn't help.
Still, aside from the many frustrating things that happened last night, some positives came out of this game for the Browns. Overall they did hang tough against a talented Eagles team.
If nothing else, they sent a very important message to the league and to their fans from a psychological standpoint: We're not going to give up, and we're not going to let anybody push us around. In this sort of game, that may be the best we can ask for just three weeks into the preseason.
