Browns clinch first overall pick, lose to Bears, 20-3

Browns clinch first overall pick, lose to Bears, 20-3

Cleveland will have the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

In the midst of a snowy Christmas Eve, the Browns fell to the Chicago Bears, 20-3, which drops the Browns to 1-30 in the Hue Jackson era, and one step closer to the winless parade at the climax of an 0-16 season.

It looked like Cleveland had jumped ahead on the first play of the second half when Trubisky's pass intended for Howard was intercepted by Myles Garrett and run back to the end zone. The Browns fell to 0-15 and are in jeopardy of joining the 2008 Lions as the only 0-16 teams in National Football League history.

And the Browns will wrap up the season at AFC North leader Pittsburgh next week. The Browns, who are 0-15 this season, finished 1-15 last season. And after beating the then-San Diego Chargers on Christmas Eve a year ago, there was no holiday celebration for them this time.

Howard's touchdowns were his eighth and ninth this season, and gave the second-year running back four in his last three games. The second pick in the draft completed 14 of 23 passes for 193 yards with no turnovers and an 87.8 passer rating and also rushed for 44 yards and one touchdown on seven carries.

Trubisky ran in the Bears third touchdown himself from 4 yards out with 3:27 left in the third to finish a 12-play, 66-yard march.

The Bears were leading 6-3 when Garrett had his big interception return wiped on the first play from scrimmage in the third. The kick was set up after Kizer hit Ricardo Louis for a 35-yard pass. The Bears would tack on another touchdown to make the score 20-3.

"I'm not going 1-15", Jackson said then. "No".

Danny Trevathan then stripped Higgins at the Chicago 3 after a 17-yard reception near the end of the quarter, and the Bears' Prince Amukamara recovered the fumble in the end zone. But while Fox doesn't have a loss to the Browns on his ledger, the three consecutive years of losing 10 or more games - while not showing much demonstrable progress - means he likely will not get to coach the fourth year on his contract.
