The Cleveland Browns lost for the fourth time in as many tries Sunday, allowing 14 fourth-quarter points to the Washington Redskins in a 31-20 defeat.
Snapping that winless streak in Week 5 will be quite difficult, to say the least.
The 0-4 Browns’ next opponent is a New England Patriots team that will have the services of starting quarterback Tom Brady for the first time this season.
Brady was suspended for New England’s first four games as a result of Deflategate, and he surely will be raring to go when he steps onto the field Sunday in Cleveland.
Browns head coach Hue Jackson was asked Monday about facing an uber-motivated Brady. His response was honest and blunt.
The Patriots went 3-1 in Brady’s absence, beating the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans before falling to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
