Cleveland Browns look to make history...for all the wrong reasons.

Cleveland Brown fan reacts to another loss at home.

It's been an unforgettable year for Cleveland sports.
The Cavaliers won the NBA title giving the city it's first championship in 51 years. The Indians went to the world series, and despite losing, captured the hearts of Cleveland sports fans. And in May, Stipe Miocic won the UFC heavyweight belt over Fabricio Werdum
However, this could all be overshadowed by the city's beloved football team.
 The Cleveland Browns are looking to avoid becoming the second winless team in NFL history. Only the 2008 Detroit Lions have the honor of going winless in a 16 game schedule.
The Browns have had many bad seasons, but the 2016 Browns could set the record as the worst team in franchise history.
The team not only entered the season with a lack of talent and depth, but were also ravaged by injuries throughout the season, starting in week 1 when they lost newly acquired quarterback Robert Griffin III to a fractured bone in his left shoulder.
In fact, the Browns have already gone through 3 quarterbacks this season, and about a billion since 2000.
Other injuries to key players like All-Pro guard Joe Thomas, cornerback Joe Haden, tight end Gary Barnidge and rookie receiver Corey Coleman, , along with losing Josh Gordon(one of the most talented receivers in the league) to rehab, have devastated a team that seems to have had no luck recently.
The Browns have a bye this week before they host their division rivals the Cincinnati Bengals, then play at Buffalo, at home against San Diego, and end the season at Pittsburgh(which is almost a guaranteed loss).
The team will have to find a win somewhere before they go to Pittsburgh, and at this point, it isn't looking likely.
The team understands the urgency of trying to find a win to avoid sports infamy. WR Corey Coleman said after practice, " Nobody's given up, and that's what's really good about this locker room and the older guys leading us and stuff, nobody's showing any signs of quitting."
Coach Hue Jackson, who said he intends on coming back next season, also refuses to throw in the towel just yet, saying "  I owe our fan base and our organization and these players an opportunity to win a game. The next one up is Cincinnati. We are going to do whatever it takes to get ourselves in that 'W' column."
It's hard to predict if a winless season would overshadow the city's first NBA title and an epic 7-game World Series. Only time will tell.
