Cleveland Browns Clinch No. 1 Draft Pick With Loss To Steelers

The offense stalls out on its first possession and the Cleveland Browns get the ball back and march right down the field for an easy touchdown.

"We have seen him get better from the first opportunity to the second to the third", Coach Hue Jackson said last week. The season began with Robert Griffin III as the starter, but things didn't exactly work out. The Browns had 202 yards of offense in the half, and a late touchdown drive put the Steelers' total at 52. I'll give Griffin credit where it's due, he, along with the defense, willed the Browns to a win last week.

The Steelers chose to start most of their defensive players and offensive line but rest offensive stars Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and Maurkice Pouncey.

The Steelers got key contributions from several role players who will be needed for Miami. Unfortunately for Griffin, his time may be running out to make a lasting impression.

Memorable year for Sir Andy ends in shock defeat
Nadal's last Grand Slam title was the French Open in 2014, which he won for an astonishing record-breaking ninth time. In the earlier match, world No.1 Andy Murray defeated Canada's Milos Raonic 6-3 7-6 (8-6) to claim third place.

Browns personnel executives Sashi Brown and Andrew Berry both watched Garrett and Trubisky in person this past weekend at the players' respective bowl games. Those injuries would be Stephon Tuitt (knee), Ladarius Green (concussion) and Sammie Coates (hamstring). National Football League personnel executives have indicated reservations about the quality of the 2017 quarterback class, so this might not be the right year for the Browns to ring the quarterback bell again.

It appears the Steelers have made this game a full-blown bye week. In a season when it looked as if the Browns would inevitably go winless, they are on the cusp of starting a new streak, a winning streak.

But it's a pretty awful omen and so perfectly Browns to have a bus break down on the way to the final game of what could end up being a one-win season.
