The Cleveland Browns lost a close one to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12.
The final score was 16-10.
Check out my TikTok talking about the Browns’ shortfalls.
Here are the news and notes for the morning after the Sunday night game.
1. Jack Conklin
The Browns were elated that Conklin was activated from injured reserve and scheduled to play against the Ravens.
In a heartbreaking turn of events, Conklin was injured during the game, and though it has not been confirmed, the injury could be serious enough to be season-ending.
Browns are concerned that standout right tackle Jack Conklin tore his patella tendon during Sunday night’s loss to the Ravens, per source.

2. Coach Stefanski
Stefanski was reportedly asked about considering a quarterback change during the bye week.
He was adamant that it will not happen.
“Let me ask you a question, why would we do that? We’re not doing that.”
Browns' Kevin Stefanski said a QB change isn't on the table during the team's bye week: "Let me ask you a question, why would we do that? We're not doing that."

As expected, Stefanski is testy.
Things are not going well in Cleveland; what a difference a year makes.
The Browns are not putting points on the board.
Kevin Stefanski’s offense has scored 27 points in 3 games.

3. Dropped Passes
Drops were par for the course against Baltimore.
Receivers need to come down with the ones thrown to them.
Too many drops for sure. Felton dropped big 3rd down, DPJ huge drop on 1st drive, expect Jarvis to make the cach on last drive, Hooper just a waste of money..but Baker gotta be better too.. and coach wtf was that Jarvis Landry pass for??? #Browns

4. Rough Weekend In Ohio
The Harbaugh brothers delivered a one-two punch to the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Cleveland Browns this weekend.
Whereas the Ravens have owned the Browns in recent years, Michigan had not beaten OSU since 2011.
Fans were very upset about this terrible turn of events.

5. Bye Week
The Browns needed a bye about three weeks ago.
Now that it is here hopefully the team can get healthy and refocused.
Sloppy and undisciplined play still are problems.
#Browns HC Kevin Stefanski: "Very, very disappointing and frustrated in that game. Credit to Baltimore. They did a good job. They beat us. Gotta get to this bye week, fix some things, get healthy."

Coach Stefanski summed it up in the postgame press conference.
“Very, very disappointing and frustrated in that game. Credit to Baltimore. They did a good job. They beat us. Gotta get to this bye week, fix some things, get healthy.”
Let’s hope the bye does allow for improved health and time to fix problems.
