The Browns made hilariously depressing NFL history with the loss to the Jets

The Browns’ stunning loss to the Jets felt incredibly unlikely, but it was actually history repeating itself in the worst possible way for Cleveland.

That Cleveland Browns With 1:23 left, the New York Jets led by 13 points.

You lost with one.

That’s correct. This is not a typo or a daydream. That actually happened. The Browns extended a 13-point lead in less than 90 seconds. To the jets.

It was incredible, but also, oddly enough, totally fitting for a Browns franchise that’s literally been around before.

The last time a team lost a game despite leading by 13 in the last two minutes? The Cleveland Browns.

The Browns’ collapse against the Jets was the worst since Cleveland’s last collapse

That collapse was in 2001 against the bears. Other head coach. Other quarterback. Different roster from top to bottom. The same old Browns.

Let’s put this collapse in an even more painful context. Cleveland had a 99.9 percent chance of winning that game after Nick Chubb scored to put his team 30-17 ahead.

How exactly did this happen? The Jets got the ball back on Chubb’s touchdown and took virtually no time to score on a 66-yard pass from Joe Flacco to Corey Davis.

All Cleveland had to do was regain the onside kick… They didn’t. New York delivered a perfect onside kick and rallied to breathe new life into themselves.

All Cleveland had to do was stop Flacco and company from finding the end zone with 1:18 remaining in the game. Neither could they. Flacco led a nine-play 53-yard drive to take the lead on a 15-yard pass to Garrett Wilson.

Jacoby Brissett had 22 seconds to respond, but he threw an interception and the game ended in pure and utter Cleveland misery.

Cleveland fell back to 1-1 while the Jets improved to 1-1. The Browns made hilariously depressing NFL history with the loss to the Jets
