A dad was horrified to find Cleveland Browns tickets in his child's Halloween bag

The Cleveland Browns haven't won a game this season. The defense is bad, the playmakers are scarce -- and, for once, the quarterback isn't the problem.

But around Halloween, things got downright scary when fans began giving away Browns tickets instead of candy.

One dad posted a photo to Twitter showing just how ruthless things have become in Cleveland when it comes to Browns football.

"Parents- please check your children's candy this Halloween!! I just found 2 Browns tickets in my kids bag!!," the distressed dad wrote.

To put things into perspective, tickets to a Patriots game at Gillette Stadium are going for no lower than $281 on StubHub. Browns tickets are going in exchange for the words "trick-or-treat."

Hang in there, Cleveland. At least you have the Cavs.
