FPI: Browns already on the clock again?

Virtually out of the running for the postseason at 0-6, the Browns have a 63.5 percent chance of getting the No. 1 overall pick for a second straight year, according to ESPN's FPI. That's more than twice the percentage points as the team with the next-best odds, the 49ers (29.6).

Best and worst QBs of Week 6: Kevin Hogan scuffles

For the third week in a row, and the fourth time this season, a Browns quarterback finds himself in the bottom three in Total QBR. Things actually started off well for Hogan, but it went downhill from there quickly.

NFL Panic Meter: Browns

Not only has there not been progress, but Hue Jackson's team might have even taken a step back from last year's 1-15 squad. It doesn't get much worse than that.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

On Will Fuller's deep touchdown Sunday, Jabrill Peppers said he was playing one coverage, cornerback Jamar Taylor another. "Not too many good things stem from that," Peppers said.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The tea leaves all point toward the Browns starting DeShone Kizer at quarterback against Tennessee, but Hue Jackson said will wait until Wednesday before making an announcement.

Vote: The best and worst from Sunday in the NFL

Which performance from Sunday in the NFL stood out the most? What was the biggest surprise? And how will the Packers fare without their quarterback?

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

After DeShone Kizer struggled to start the season, Kevin Hogan started for the Browns today but wasn't any better. The former Stanford quarterback posted a Total QBR of 7.3 against the Texans. Entering today, Kizer had the worst Total QBR this season (18.0) among qualifying quarterbacks.

The Browns are 0-6 and looking for solutions. The problem is the solutions are not readily available.

Ugly day for Kevin Hogan

In 13 attempts that traveled more than 10 yards downfield on Sunday, Hogan completed as many to Texans defenders as he did to his own teammates: two. His completion percentage on such plays (16.7) was the second-worst by any QB in a game this season (min. 10 attempts). (ESPN Stats & Info)

Browns' Jackson isn't buying Watson text story

Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson seemed perplexed by a report during the game broadcast on CBS that he had texted Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson the day of the draft and said, "be ready."

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Hue Jackson channeled his vow that he'd be swimming in Lake Erie with a repeat of 2016: "We're going to find a way to win. I am not swimming in that lake."

Watson tosses 3 TDs as Texans beat Browns 33-17

Deshaun Watson threw for 225 yards and three touchdowns, becoming the first rookie in NFL history with at least three TD passes in three straight games, helping give the Houston Texans a 33-17 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

DeShone Kizer and Deshaun Watson exchange jerseys postgame.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Kevin Hogan's first start was one to forget, as Hogan threw three first-half interceptions, one that was returned for a touchdown. Hogan didn't get past 100 yards until the fourth quarter, and only got in the end zone with 1:03 left. His 38.1 rating reflected his day.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Deshaun Watson TD pass to DeAndre Hopkins. Red zone play action with Hopkins on the slant. And that's on film. Browns have to alert for that concept given the field position.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The last Browns quarterback to throw three interceptions in a first half was Brandon Weeden in the season opener of 2013, per ESPN Stats and Information.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Browns started the game ranked fifth in the NFL in defense. The misleading part of that: ESPN Stats reports the Browns started the game giving up an NFL-high 87 points in the first half. Houston got 24.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

That's pick No.3 for Browns QB Kevin Hogan. Trying to hit the deep out/comeback.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The insistence on calling plays like the Browns have Aaron Rodgers at quarterback is baffling.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

That was rookie inside linebacker Dylan Cole running stride for stride and outfighting Duke Johnson for that interception.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Bad overthrow (second in two passes) by Kevin Hogan leads to pick six for Texans. The more things change ...
