The Browns failed to improve upon their 1–15 record from the previous season, losing all sixteen games in 2017 and continuing a losing streak dating to the final game of the previous season. They became the second team in NFL history to go 0–16 after the 2008 Detroit Lions. The Browns became the twelfth NFL team to have gone winless playing eight games or more and the fourth since the merger in 1970.
In going 0–16, the Browns became the first franchise in NFL history to have multiple seasons with 15 or more losses and the first to start consecutive seasons with at least 14 losses. They were mathematically eliminated from the AFC North title contention early in Week 11, extending an active NFL record drought of 28 consecutive seasons without a division title. They were then eliminated from playoff contention in Week 12, extending their franchise record playoff drought to 15 consecutive seasons. The Browns finished 4th place in the AFC North for the seventh consecutive season in addition to finishing the season with a losing record for the tenth consecutive season dating back to 2008, extending a franchise record. It was the first season in which the team lost every home game since the 1999 season. They also extended their road losing streak to 21 games and their losing streak within the division to 17 games. A loss to the Chargers in Week 13 also made the Browns 1–27 in their first 28 games under Hue Jackson (making Jackson the worst percentage debut coach of all-time), surpassing the 1976–1977 Buccaneers for the worst 28 game start (2–26) for a regime in NFL history. The Browns would finish the 2017 season with a combined record of 1–31 over the previous two seasons, an NFL record for worst winning percentage over any two season span. Finally, since a promising 7–4 start heading into Week 13 of the 2014 season, the Browns have lost 49 out of the last 53 games.
On December 7, 2017, Brown was relieved of his duties as executive vice president. John Dorsey, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs, was hired as general manager the same day. To further add to these failures, offensive tackle Joe Thomas missed the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career, as he tore his left triceps on October 22, 2017, ending his season. Before his injury, Thomas had not missed a single snap since joining the league in 2007 – 10,363 plays. He then decided to retire on March 14, 2018 following the season.
- The Cleveland Browns became the second team since the 2008 Lions to finish a season winless since the creation of a 16-game schedule.
- They became the first franchise in the modern 16 game schedule to have a set of multiple season with 15 or more losses and the first to begin consecutive seasons with 14 losses.
- The Browns were eliminated from the AFC North title race in Week 11 which made them a franchise-record 27 straight seasons without winning the AFC North. The Browns loss to the Bengals and a Bills win over the Chiefs sealed the Browns elimination from playoff contention, extending their playoff drought to 15 seasons.
- The Browns finished with a losing record for the 10th consecutive year and last in the division for the 7th consecutive year. For the first time since 1999, the Browns are 0-8 in home games; also their road losing streak increased to 21 games, their losing streak within the AFC North increased to 17 games and their losing streak in road games against the Pittsburgh Steelers increased to 10 games.
-A 19-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers made the Browns 1-27 under HC Hue Jackson and GM Sashi Brown, which ecompasses the 1976-77 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-26) for the worst 28 game start for a HC and GM in a two-season stretch.
- The Browns finished the season 1-31 in the past 32 games (all of 2016 and 2017), their only win coming against the San Diego Chargers (now the Los Angeles Chargers). This is the worst two-season stretch for any NFL franchise since the creation of a 16-game schedule and the worst for any HC/GM in team or league history.
-With a 20-3 loss to the 4-10 Chicago Bears, the Browns became the first team since their 1999 and 2000 selves to go through back-to-back drafts with the first-overall pick.
- Coming into Week 13 of the 2014 season, following a promising 7-4 start, the Browns have lost 49 of the last 53 games. This futility includes 5 consecutive losses to end 2014 and all of 2015, 2016 and 2017.
- To make matters wore, a Buffalo Bills win over the Miami Dolphins- followed by a Cincinnati Bengals win over Baltimore- helped the Bills take a playoff berth, ending a streak of 19 seasons without a playoff berth for Buffalo. Because of that, the Cleveland Browns now hold the longest playoff drought of any NFL franchise (now at 15 seasons), as well as the second longest of any American professional sport, only behind the Seattle Mariners of the MLB.
On January 7, the Browns fired defensive coordinator Ray Horton. A day later, they hired Gregg Williams as his replacement. Williams had previously served as the defensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams.
On January 10, the Browns fired five assistant coaches: offensive line coach Hal Hunter, inside linebackers coach Johnny Holland, outside linebackers coach Ryan Slowik, defensive backs coach Louie Cioffi, and assistant defensive backs coach Cannon Matthews.
On January 13, the Browns hired DeWayne Walker as defensive backs coach. A day later, they hired Blake Williams as linebackers coach, Jerod Kruse as assistant defensive backs coach, and Bob Wylie as offensive line coach.

Note: Intra-division opponents are in bold text.
Week 1: vs. Pittsburgh SteelersEdit
The scoring began early in the first quarter when Pittsburgh's Tyler Matakevich blocked a Britton Colquitt punt, knocking the ball into the end zone where it was recovered by Anthony Chickillo for a touchdown. The Browns were able to tie the score by the end of the first quarter, however, as rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer orchestrated a 12-play drive that ended when he scored on a 1-yard touchdown run.
The game stayed at 7–7 through most of the second quarter, until the Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger connected with tight end Jesse James on a 4-yard touchdown with 45 seconds left in the first half. The 7–play, 91-yard scoring drive was highlighted by a 50-yard reception by Antonio Brown on a tipped ball.
After a Zane Gonzalez field goal brought the Browns within 14–10 early in the third quarter, the Steelers drove down the field again. Roethlisberger threw a second touchdown pass to James to put them up by 11, 21–10. The drive was boosted by a 41-yard pass interference penalty on Browns cornerback Jamar Taylor on a deep pass intended for Brown.
The score remained 21–10 until under four minutes remained in the game, when Kizer was able to throw his first career touchdown pass to Corey Coleman. A two–point conversion run by Isaiah Crowell brought the Browns to within a field goal, 21–18.
The Browns did not get a chance to score again, however, as the Steelers were able to run out the clock after a long pass from Roethlisberger to Brown. Browns head coach Hue Jackson challenged the ruling; however, the catch call on the field was upheld.
The 13th–straight season–opening loss extended an NFL record for the Browns, who also fell to 1–18 in season openers since returning to the league in 1999. The team also lost their 12th straight game against a divisional opponent. The team started 0-1.
Week 2: at Baltimore RavensEdit
With the loss, the Browns fell to 0–2. Ravens QB, Joe Flacco, improved to 16–2 against the Browns for his career while the Browns lost their 14th straight road game and their 13th straight game against a divisional opponent.
Week 3: at Indianapolis ColtsEdit
Week 4: vs. Cincinnati BengalsEdit
Week 5: vs. New York JetsEdit
Week 6: at Houston TexansEdit
The Texans routed the Browns, dropping them to 0–6 and handing them their 16th straight road loss.
Week 7: vs. Tennessee TitansEdit
With the overtime loss, the Browns fell to 0–7. The loss led to Browns starting 0–7 for only the 4th time in franchise history (1975, 1999, and 2016). It was the first time in 23 games under Hue Jackson that the Browns failed to score a touchdown. This game was the first such occurrence since Week 17 of the 2015 season. During the third quarter, star left tackle Joe Thomas suffered an injury to his arm and was knocked out of the rest of the game, making this the first time since joining the Browns in 2007 that he had missed an offensive play. The day after the game, it was announced that Thomas had torn his triceps and would likely miss the rest of the season. It would also be his last ever NFL game, as Thomas announced his retirement on March 14, 2018.
Week 8: vs. Minnesota VikingsEdit
The Browns traveled to London but were considered home team against the Vikings. They scored first in the first quarter when Isaiah Crowell ran for a 26-yard touchdown (with a failed PAT) to make it 6-0. The Vikes got on the board when Kai Forbath kicked a 35-yard field goal to make it 6-3. The Vikes took the lead when Case Keenum found Adam Thielen on an 18-yard pass (with a failed PAT) to make it 9-3. DeShone Kizer ran for a 1-yard touchdown to put the Browns back in the lead 13-9. Though, the Vikes soon followed when Forbath kicked a 34-yard field goal to make it 13-12 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Vikes retook the lead after Forbath kicked a 43-yard field goal to make it 15-13. Zane Gonzalez then put up a 23-yard field goal to make it 16-15 in favor of the Browns retaking the lead. Though it wouldn't last long when the Vikes retook the lead later on in the quarter when Jerick McKinnon ran for a 1-yard touchdown (with a successful 2-point conversion) to make it 23-16. In the fourth quarter, the Vikes sealed the game when Keenum found Kyle Rudolph on a 4-yard pass to make it 30-16. Then Forbath kicked a 51-yard field goal to make the final score 33-16.
With the loss, the Browns went into their bye week 0–8. It was the 3rd time in franchise history that the Browns failed to win a regular season game in the 1st half of a season (1975, 2016). Their 8th loss ensured that the team would fail to finish a season with a winning record for the 10th consecutive year, extending a franchise record.
Week 10: at Detroit LionsEdit
With the loss, the Browns fell to 0–9, losing their 10th consecutive game, losing their 17th consecutive road game, and clinching a losing record for the 10th consecutive season, extending their franchise record drought. The 49ers' win over the Giants later that day left the Browns as the only winless team in the NFL through 10 weeks of the season.
On Thursday Night Football, the Steelers defeated the Titans to improve to 8–2, which mathematically eliminated the Browns from AFC North title contention, extending the Browns' drought without a division title to 25 consecutive seasons, the longest active drought in the NFL.
Week 11: vs. Jacksonville JaguarsEdit
The Browns committed 5 turnovers, including 2 interceptions and 2 lost fumbles from Kizer, as they lost 19–7 to the Jaguars. With the loss, the Browns fell to 0–10, losing their 11th consecutive game. It's only the second time in franchise history that the Browns started a season 0–10, with the first such occurrence happening in the previous season. The loss made the Browns 4–43 in their last 47 games, a record that started in Week 13 of the 2014 season, the worst 47 game stretch in NFL history.
Week 12: at Cincinnati BengalsEdit
The Browns' losing streak continued as they fell to the Bengals 30–16. With the loss, the Browns fell to 0–11, losing their 12th consecutive game, their 18th consecutive road game, and their 15th consecutive divisional matchup, and combined with a Bills victory over the Chiefs, eliminated them from playoff contention. The loss ensured that the Browns would finish in 4th place in the AFC North for the 7th consecutive season.
Week 13: at Los Angeles ChargersEdit
The losing streak continued as the Browns fell to the Chargers 19–10. With the loss, the Browns fell to 0–12 and the losing streak was extended to 13 consecutive games while their road losing streak was extended to 19 consecutive games. The loss made the Browns 1–27 in the first 28 games under Jackson and Brown, overtaking the 1976–1977 Buccaneers (2–26) for the worst 28 game start under a HC and GM in NFL history.
On the following Thursday, Brown was relieved of his GM duties.
Week 14: vs. Green Bay PackersEdit
In overtime, Cleveland won the toss but Kizer threw an interception to Packers rookie safety Josh Jones. Adams later scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Hundley to seal a 27-21 Green Bay win.
With the loss, the Browns dropped to 0-13 as they lost their 14th consecutive game. They became the first franchise in NFL history to start 0-13 in consecutive seasons.
Week 15: vs. Baltimore RavensEdit
The Ravens routed the Browns 27-10, sending them to their 15th consecutive loss and their 16th consecutive loss within the division. The loss ensured that the Browns would finish the season without a home victory for the first time since the 1999 season. With the loss, the Browns fell to 0-14 and became the first franchise to start 0-14 in consecutive seasons.
Week 16: at Chicago BearsEdit
With the loss, the Browns dropped their 16th straight game and their 20th consecutive road game. They became the first team to start 0–15 since the 2008 Lions. They also became the first franchise in the NFL to ever have multiple seasons with 15 or more losses. The loss also secured the #1 overall draft pick for a second year in a row. They're the first team since the 1999 Browns and 2000 Browns to have the #1 overall pick in back-to-back drafts.
Week 17: at Pittsburgh SteelersEdit
The Steelers took an early lead in the first quarter when Darrius Heyward-Bey ran for a 29-yard run for a touchdown to make it 7-0. They would make it 14-0 in the second quarter when Landry Jones found Juju Smith-Schuster for a 20-yard pass. The Browns then got on the board when Duke Johnson ran for a 2-yard touchdown to make it 14-7. The Steelers pulled away by double digits after Stevan Ridley ran for a 4-yard touchdown to make it 21-7. The Browns then came within 7 when DeShone Kizer found Rashard Higgins on a 56-yard pass to make it 21-14 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Browns managed to tie the game at 21-21 when Kizer and Higgins connected again on a 5-yard pass. The Steelers retook the lead when Smith-Schuster returned the ensuing kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown to make it 28-21. Zane Gonzalez then got the Browns within 4 with a 51-yard field goal to make it 28-24.
In a highly defensive fourth quarter, the Browns tried to rally a comeback and win. However, on 4th-and-2 with 1:46 left in the game, Browns receiver Corey Coleman dropped a wide open pass from Kizer at the Steelers' 11-yard line, giving the ball back to the Steelers on downs and sealing the Browns' fate.
With the loss, the Browns became the second team in NFL history to finish 0-16 after the 2008 Detroit Lions. Hue Jackson's career record with the Browns fell to 1-31. With that, this is the worst 32-game record since the league adapted a 16-game schedule.
To add insult to injury, later that afternoon, the Buffalo Bills' win over the Miami Dolphins - coupled with a Bengals win over Baltimore - gave the Bills a playoff berth, ending 18 straight years without a postseason appearance by that team. With that, the Cleveland Browns now hold the longest active postseason drought of any NFL team (as well as the second-longest in all North American professional sport; only the Seattle Mariners, who last made the Major League Baseball playoffs in 2001, have been out of the postseason longer), going back to 2002.
With the loss, the Browns tied their franchise record of 17 straight regular season losses. It also was their 21st consecutive road loss, 17th consecutive loss against a divisional opponent, and 14th consecutive road loss to the Steelers.
Also, Kizer became the first professional QB to go 0-15 in his first 15 starts.Template:Citation needed
Dating back to week 13 of 2014, after a promising 7-4 start, the Browns have lost 49 out of the last 53 games (5-game losing streak to end 2014, 13 losses in 2015, 15 losses in 2016, and 16 losses in 2017).
Aftermath and fan reactionEdit
A parade was held on January 6, 2018 at FirstEnergy Stadium in honor of the Browns' imperfect season and general ineptitude. It was organized by fan Chris McNeil through the contributions of fellow Browns fans and pain reliever manufacturer Excedrin. Additionally, the parade organization raised over $17,000 of charitable donations which went to the Cleveland Food Bank.
