The Cleveland Browns lost a heartbreaker to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, October 10.
The final score was 47-42.
It was an offensive shootout that was up for grabs up until the final seconds of the game.
Check out my TikTok video recap of the game.
Here are the news and notes from the game.
The Browns were record-breakers in the Week 5 game.
In this case, the team would have preferred if the Chargers earned this record.
Instead it was the Browns who were the first team in NFL history to lose the game after scoring more than 40 points and 500 yards of offense without giving up a turnover.

King James was seen at the Browns-Chargers game.
His Lakers had a preseason game later in the day, but he still showed up to cheer on his Browns.
Many question how many favorite teams James has, but the point remains James showed up for the Browns.
.@KingJames came out to support his Browns 👏

The Browns remain one of LeBron’s favorite 7 football teams.

LeBron now back on the Cleveland Browns bandwagon, at SoFi giving the go-ahead TD a standing ovation. I thought he grew up a Cowboys fan???

Deja Vu For JOK And Joe Burrow In Week 5
In scary news, two Ohio NFL players suffered the same freak and unusual injury in their games.
We wish both of them speedy recoveries.
Two players in one day, joining Joe Burrow.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield was not the only one who took issue with the officiating.
Social media was full of angry fans who were also wondering what the refs were thinking at different points in the game.
What if I told you both of these plays resulted in penalties against the #Browns ? 🥴. @NFL refs are a joke. I understand missing a call, but calling a penalty on the wrong team is unacceptable. pic.twitter.com/9K2b7KfFnX

I'm over the refs always playing a big part in #Browns games. @NFLOfficiating always does the same thing and the next day they just issue a statement saying there was an error made. Players are held to high standards. Refs should be as well.
