The Cleveland Browns could not have asked for a better situation on Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
The Browns, in their home finale to the 2012 NFL season, were facing one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL and, because of an injury, the Redskins were forced to start Kirk Cousins at quarterback instead of dynamic rookie Robert Griffin III.
All the Browns had to do was take advantage of the opportunity staring them in the face.
Final score: Washington 38, Cleveland 21.
The loss snaps the Browns three-game winning streak, kills all the premature talk about a drive for the playoffs and certainly deals a serious blow to Pat Shurmur’s chances of coming back for a third year as Browns coach.
We try to figure out what happened at The Cleveland Fan.
