Griffin is expected to start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals even though head coach Hue Jackson wasn’t ready to declare that on Monday.
The Browns are losing by an average margin of just under 13 points per game and have been outscored in every quarter this season.
That’s the Browns’ plan to rise from the abyss to the top of the National Football League in the coming years. With at least 11 selections at their disposal come next April, here’s a look at how the 14 they made last April have panned out through the first 12 games.
15 consecutive losses have followed a 24-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Dec. 13, 2015. The Browns have set franchise records for longest overall losing streak in franchise history and the worst start to a season ever at 0-12, and still counting.
Browns Notes: Hue Jackson Says Haslams Are Committed To The Plan, This Season ‘Worth It’ If Rebuild Is Successful
Before accepting the job in January, Jackson grilled the Haslam’s about their commitment – or in this case lack of commitment – and he apparently was satisfied with their response enough to take on what seems like an impossible task of turning the Browns around.
As bad as entering the month of December winless is, unlike years past, the locker room and building don’t feel like the end of the world is near to him.
The Browns haven’t won a game and despite his personal success, he’s not shy about or afraid to hold himself accountable for the lack of team success.
While it appears that Griffin will probably start Dec. 11 against Cincinnati, Jackson did not want to commit to that Tuesday. He wants to see him get through a full week of practice first.
