Browns Begin Game By Screwing Up Punt Return, Fumbling, & Calling Timeout Before 1st Play (Video)
There’s a reason why this team is 0-9 so far this season.
Every other team in the league likes to send one player back to catch punts, while the Cleveland Browns decided to send two guys back there. And neither one of them called the other off as they almost muffed the punt while attempting to catch it at the same time.
The Browns lost 14 yards on the goof and fumbled the ball in the process. Luckily, they recovered it.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the Browns became the 1st team to use 2 timeouts in the first 5 minutes of the game since 2013.
The Browns took a timeout before the 1st play of scrimmage.
