Hue Jackson: We Have Work To Do But The Sky’s Not Falling Following Friday Night’s Clunker At Tampa Bay
Outside of a few big plays to Josh Gordon, the Browns did not play well in any phase – offense, defense or special teams – in a 30-13 loss to Tampa Bay raising concerns about just how far the Browns have to go to become competitive again.

The Browns are getting healthy and just in time to hop on a plane to spend the week with the Buccaneers in Tampa, Florida.
The Browns gave up 498 total yards, 224 rushing yards, 31 first downs and the Falcons converted 11-of-17 on third down in Thursday night’s 24-13 win.
