Morning Rewind, 12/1: Nobody will ever out-Browns the Cleveland Browns

Travis: Browns Deserve Loss for Keeping Manziel on the Bench

A week that began with turmoil ended in the most predictable ways possible -- if you're familiar with the Cleveland Browns.

After perhaps the best game of his career to date, Johnny Manziel was not only benched, but effectively suspended for the team's Monday Night Football matchup against the Baltimore Ravens for getting caught partying on video.

This left the Browns with Josh McCown under center once again -- until he went down in the second half with injury. Then the shot-calling duties were left to none other than four-year pro Austin Davis, who hadn't taken a regular season snap since going 3-5 for the St. Louis Rams a year ago.

But still, through all of this excruciatingly Browns-esque nonsense, they were about to win the game.

Tied up at 27 with just three seconds left on the clock, Travis Coons -- just a short time after he broke an NFL record -- lined up for the game-winning kick to send the Browns home 3-8, creeping into a tie with Baltimore as they slowly attempt to climb out of the AFC North cellar.

But then -- Browns.

The team's reaction was about all that was left to say...

...besides "Oh no."
