The loss to New England actually followed the hallmarks of several Browns wins: hot start on the ground, get out to a quick lead. The problem was that New England was able to push back and this team's plan for getting out of huge negative game scripts is "surely, Baker will figure it out this time." He's just not that kind of quarterback. The Browns remain a playoff contender and this is such a down year for the NFL's elite as a whole that it's hard to rule everything out, but they have very clear weaknesses, same as any other team. They also get the Lions next week to get right for their showdown with the Ravens. I am contractually mandated to type the words "Odell Beckham" once. -- Rivers McCown
