The Browns have lost six straight games after winning five straight and have lost seven straight since the start of training camp.
But a team that has scored just 10 points in its last eight games is showing some signs of life.
Cleveland has been able to slow down the game clock, which is something it’s been unable to do for much of the season, thanks to a number of factors.
The Browns’ run defense is still one of the league’s best, and the unit is allowing the most yards per game (12.8) of any unit in the NFL, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
But the Browns’ offense has been unable the to run the ball efficiently, and their passing game has struggled.
The offense has averaged just 3.5 yards per carry in each of the last three games, while the defense has allowed 6.3 yards per rush.
The defense is allowing an average of 6.7 yards per attempt, which ranks fourth in the league.
The Browns’ offensive line has been the team’s most porous unit, and they’ve been the most porous of all teams in the NFC South, according.
The unit has allowed a league-high 17 sacks and 11 quarterback hits, per Pro Football Focus.
The Steelers’ offensive tackle has been even more of a liability, with five sacks and six quarterback hurries.
But, the defense, which has allowed an average per pass attempt of 4.4 yards per pass, has allowed just 3 yards per completion.
The offense has struggled all season, and with a win tonight against the Colts, Cleveland would have the best record in the AFC South at 5-0.
The Colts are 4-1.
