The Cleveland Browns suffered another disappointing loss, this time against the Atlanta Falcons.
They have now lost two of their first four games by a total of four points.
In Week 2, they lost to the New York Jets in the game’s final two minutes.
This time, the Browns had a setback against a team with a starting quarterback who only completed seven passes out of 19 attempts.
Meanwhile, Nick Chubb was once again at his best, finishing with 19 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown.
The Browns also had more total yards, first downs, and time of possession.
Despite those advantages, the Browns couldn’t seal the deal versus Atlanta.
Orange and Brown Report’s Brad Stainbrook blames one person for this defeat.
I’d fire Joe Woods.
Had extra time after TNF to fix secondary issues. A key factor in another loss today. #Browns

He added, “At the same time, have to consider all the injuries up front. Terrible loss.”
Rag-Tag Browns Defense
The Browns had a patchwork defensive line in Week 4 because Taven Bryan, Jadeveon Clowney, and Myles Garrett were all out of action.
That’s why the team finished with only one sack, courtesy of Jordan Elliott.
Likewise, their woes at the secondary helped the Falcons advance the ball, good enough for Younghoe Koo to complete what became the game-winning field goal.
The Browns had a chance to send the game to overtime or win the game, but Dee Alford intercepted a Jacoby Brissett pass intended for David Bell.
Their issues on defense could prove to be costly again when they face the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5.
Justin Herbert leads the league in passing yards, which gives them the highest average passing yards per game at 307.3.
I’ve been saying it since last year to get rid of woods, his defense sucks Browns could be 4-0 if not for the secondary, I’ve never seen so many wide open receivers in my life, they wouldn’t be going to the playoffs even if they had Watson, the offense has played well except for some stupid calls from stefanski, 3rd and 3 runs the ball up the middle for no gain, having Watson back won’t help this team firing woods will

Like to add this who the hell pays 250 million for a sexual predator that can’t play . The oline and running backs are in their prime . And rookie head coaches come on we deserve better the league approval of these dumb ass owners are not committed to winning we deserve better than the Lerner soccer fans and trucker roller food we never got owners committed to us fans and our team. We deserve better than rookie head coaches And Paul depodesta this isn’t baseball truckers ripping them off we are being ripped off let’s hire another rookie head coach so you can see the playbooks wtf 🤬 I’ve been tired of hearing I need to do a better job coaching or we need to do a better job ohh this is on me f the haslams we deserve better that’s the big picture btw the Vikings f’n sucked
Stefanski and Andrew Berry are the ones that schools be fired. Stefanski is squandering this season and Mr Berry has given away our draft picks so we willl struggle for years. 43M dollars paid to a guy who isn’t playing a down and won’t at least for an number of. Ore weeks. Can they fire an owner? The NBA did it.
Robert knapp says
Can his butt now we need a change this defense should be great
The defensive coordinator don’t know defense
The owner needs to let the o coordinator call the plays not stefanski

The haslams bought this team ripping off truckers so it’s fraudulent money .. the league approved these jackasses as owners and the learners were horrible also just a bunch of soccer fans. They promised us a winning team. They said there committed to winning yeah hiring Paul depodesta your son in law Andrew Berry and all rookie head coaches with mangini in his 2nd year is really committed to winning lmmfao ok 👍
Browns secondary needs to play man on man coverage everyone talks about ward and newsome being top corners why do they play zone, when the cornerback lets a guy go by nobody picks him up then comes the finger pointing, when playing man coverage we know who isn’t doing their job. One last thing I’ve been saying since last year let the oc call the plays!!!
