Browns linebacker Chris Kirksey guarantees Cleveland won’t go 0-16
The Cleveland Browns have yet to win a game this season despite being more than halfway through their schedule. But even though they're sitting at 0-9 after their 35-10 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, there’s one player on the Browns who is guaranteeing at least one win.
“We're not going to go 0-16,'' Browns linebacker Chris Kirksey said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “That's for a fact. We're not doing that. Things are going to get on a roll, and we've just got to keep fighting.”
The Browns are hoping not to join the 2008 Lions, who is the only team in NFL history to go 0-16. It’s avoiding that dubious distinction that is pushing Kirksey to make this proclamation.
“That's motivation,'' he said. “I don't know if I'm supposed to say this, but we're not going winless. We're not.”
So which team will be the unfortunate victim to the Browns? It’s tough to say. Cleveland’s final seven games are against the Ravens, Steelers, Giants, Bengals, Bills, Chargers and again the Steelers in the season finale.
