The Cleveland Browns fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers 33-18 and fall to 2-5-1. They made a change that can make Cleveland have hope for a good season. The firing of Hue Jackson could be the spark that the Browns need to play good football.

“Its very troubling” Browns owner Jimmy Haslam states, Jackson compiled a 3-36-1 record in two in a half seasons in cleveland. The Browns offense, however, has been particularly disappointing, ranking 24th in both yardage (342.4 per game) and scoring (21.1 points a game). Jackson becomes the sixth consecutive Browns coach (preceded by Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Pat Shurmur, Rob Chudzinski and Mike Pettine) to be fired after losing in the team’s second meeting with the Steelers that season. Jackson’s career .205 winning percentage (11-44-1) is the second-lowest in NFL history for coaches who lasted at least 40 games, leaving him ahead of only former Philadelphia Eagles owner and coach Bert Bell. Williams will remain defensive coordinator as he takes on interim coaching duties, and Haslam said he could be in consideration to continue on in the top job after this season.

Cleveland faces off against Kansas City at home to look to go to 3-5-1 with Williams taking on an interim coaching job.
