TRIASMEDIA – A COVID-19 outbreak created a week unlike any other for the Cleveland Browns as they got ready for their Week 15 game with the Las Vegas Raiders.
It ended with a crushing loss all so familiar to the franchise and Browns fans — a field goal on the game’s final play lifted the Raiders to the 16-14 victory to seriously damage Cleveland’s playoff hopes in the AFC.
Instead of sitting fourth in the AFC, and leading the division, the Browns are 12th in the conference. Seven teams make the playoffs.
The NFL postponed the game from Saturday to Monday — one of three Week 15 games the league pushed back to either Monday or Tuesday. Instead of moving into a three-way tie atop the AFC North with the Bengals (8-6) and Ravens (8-6), the Browns are now fourth in the four-team division.
Coming off their 24-22 win over the Ravens a week ago, the Browns again were unable to win consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 2-4.
