The Browns had what seemed to be a comfortable 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter but faltered in the end, prompting disgruntled Browns fans to once again lament that no lead is ever safe for their team.
Despite the loss, this game had a lot of positives. The offense came out swinging early, Seneca Wallace had a solid performance in his first start of the year, Peyton Hillis looked like the Hillis of old and the defense kept Arizona's big playmakers in check.
Well, that was true for the first three quarters anyway.
The fourth-quarter meltdown was disappointing, but even more bothersome was that no matter how well the Browns played or for how long, this one still ended up in the loss column.
Many thought this was the last winnable game of the year for the Browns, and with the overtime loss, now feel that the Browns are destined to finish the season at 4-12.
