Mistakes doom Browns
Three fumbles Saturday led to three Lions touchdowns in a 35-27 loss in Ford Field. Defensive penalties were a problem, too.
The Browns fumbled five times last week, losing three, in a 19-17 loss to the Rams.
The fumbleitis can be cured with enough practice. The penalties and be diminished with enough discipline.
What the loss on the artificial turf showed more than anything is the Browns are a slow football team. Speed cannot be coached.
