The Browns struggled mightily in their 17-16 Week 1 loss to the Eagles…no, wait, that was last season. Let me try again. The Browns blew their opening day game to the Cincinnati Bengals by a score of 27-17 after a miscommunication left star receiver A.J. Green wide open…nope, that’s not it either, that was two seasons ago. I got it now. The Browns got a nice defensive performance, but the offense led by Jake Delhomme struggled on their way to a 17-14 defeat to the Bucca…crap, that’s not it either.
Unfortunately, the Browns 23-10 Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins looked the same as any other Browns Week 1 debacle since the team returned in 1999. The roster and coaching staff may be different, but it’s the same old story on the lakefront. Here are the takeaways from the game.
