Sports Reporter vs. Basketball, every day!
 
Every day, year-round, Sports Reporter provides daily analyses, stats and selections published exclusively online in what we call the DAILY BRIEF, refreshed daily each and every morning for Web members with Basketball (NBA and College) and Baseball (MLB) coverage.

If you have never been a member, you can view a free sample (near top of right column on this page), and/or purchase a live, one-day sample of the DAILY BRIEF (and download the week's SPORTS REPORTER and MIDWEEK UPDATE at the same time!) for only $9.95. Or, you can get continuous access to it (and our other two weekly publications during football season) for 30 days for only $39.95. That is one heck of a great value when NFL, College Football and NBA and College Hoops are all in play at the same time, or even when they are not!

So, when do you think that the 49ers and Browns will win a game? Last year, the Browns went all the way to the home finale in Week 16 before they won, drawing poor San Diego, who had to fly into Cleveland on Christmas week, play on Christmas Eve when they were a lousy 5-9 and eliminated from everything including their home city. The Chargers were also coming off a 19-16 home loss to division-rival Oakland, to further add to their miserable state.

Unless I’m missing somebody, Cleveland went through five quarterbacks last season: Griffin III, McCown, Kessler, Whitehurst and Hogan. This season, they have used three: Kizer, Hogan, Kessler. The team’s TD-INT ratio on offense is 7-17. Last season, it was 15-14. We are moving backwards here! Which probably should have been expected when they drafted and decided to start Kizer, a rookie quarterback who left college early.

A year ago at this time, in my role as a Ben McAdoo not-liker, I would point out to friends that the New York Giants’ defense was on the field longer than any other unit except for the 49ers and Browns, who were the two worst teams in the NFL in 2016. This was while the Giants were on their way to winning 11 games and making the playoffs. My mantra was, 'Just wait, you will see.' The Giants’ offense, trailing only 7-6 at Green Bay in the Wild Card game, was unable to make a first down near the end of the half, forcing that defense back on the field for a final-drive, Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary touchdown pass that gave Green Bay a lead they would build on in the second half.
