The Cleveland Browns stink! And they're lucky to be 1 and 9 cause they should have lost the game with Buffalo. The entire organization is an embarrasment to the City of Cleveland.

We screwed your team, we should have run the clock off 10 seconds because of the Stafford injury, we forgot the Lions had no more time outs. Take 10 seconds off and Cleveland should have won. Sorry maybe next week

Soo Predictable. It's disheartening to see it happen but so predictable, Only in Cleveland, just when there was a glimmer of hope, it happens again!!

WOW!!! What an awesome loss for the Browns. I was really hoping they would have a perfect losing season. But I guess a loss to Detroit will be good enough. What a bunch of losers. They should move the team again. This is so embarassing. We are the laughing stock of the NFL. The whole team should be proud of being such a disgrace to Cleveland. I am glad I live in Indy where we have a real team, not a bunch of NFL rejects.

This team should be disbanded. They do not deserve to be in the NFL. They are not NFL-quality.

Don't move them ( nowhere deserves a team this bad) just declare the team finished and let the name rest in peace.

21 point lead and still lose. Mangini needs to be fired now! This team is headed to a 1-15 season. Why can't the coaches make adjustments during the game? Same plays in the fourth quarter as in the first. Please just forfeit the rest of the games this year and put us out of our misery

sorry lions ref, your wrong, can't end the game on a defensive foul. Besides wasn't anytime on the clock to run off. Lions got lucky for once, but here comes Green Bay so we're back to reality.

Most teams never have a single game in which they lose when the other team gets a "free" play after time has expired. The Browns now have TWO since returning in 99. At least they lead the league in something.

@boycott You say move the team. What does where this team plays have anything to do with how bad they are? The only difference would be an empty stadium, instead of a full one.

Why did they call a time-out?. It was a incorrect call because Rodney Pool did intercept the pass. I wish there was a way we could protest this game. I believe the Browns played the best game all year with Brady in command. But this Sunday will be another story playing Cincinnati. I'm tired and sad that this is all they have.

Man, it's another sad day for Cleveland. I guess that we're getting used to losing since the Browns returned to Cleveland in 1999. Same old stories, bad coaching, bad management and lack of talents. Just wondering if the City of Cleveland approved a new stadium for Modell's original Browns in early '90s after the Indians and Cavs a new ballpark and a new arena? Duh? We could've won our first Super Bowl in that year 2000. So what's up with that? Well, Cleveland, I think it's time for us to wake up before I quit buying another season tickets.

Hey we are a football city, and they should not be disbanded,, Unfortunately our top dogs have turned the beloved Browns into Underdogs, Our owner has a enough money to get good players and turn this team around .. he has had it all along.. The organization at the top needs to manage this team better, and remember it is the fans of this city that come to watch and pay money to see this team... we give hard earned paychecks to see the browns ,It is terrible that as rich as these owners and general managers are they would not give back to the team and the city.. What a shame... It would not matter if we had the best quarterbacks in the world,, we do not have enough talent anymore to compete and the only way that is going to come, is our management!!!!!!!!!

It was TOTALLY expected, even in the 1st quarter when they scored 3 TDs. Anyone remember the helmet-throw that snatched defeat from a certain victory? I think it was about 4 or 5 years ago, time had nearly run out, someone threw a helmet in "the thrill of victory," an "Unsportsmanlike" penalty gave the opponent another play, and BINGO, another loss, game over.

I'll root and cheer for the Browns forever, but I NEVER expect a win--EVER!
