26. Cleveland Browns (24)

Watching the Cleveland Browns lose their regular-season finale to the Cincinnati Bengals was the perfect way to describe how much of a disappointment this year turned out to be, as this team is expected to go through plenty of changes this offseason.

Between figuring out whether Baker Mayfield, who threw three touchdowns and three interceptions in the loss to the Bengals, is the right answer under center to determining whether Freddie Kitchens is a good fit as head coach, it will be an interesting few months for the Browns.

Most likely, Cleveland will be open to giving it another go with Mayfield since the young quarterback only wrapped up his second NFL season, but the situation with Kitchens is a different story.

At the beginning of the season, the Browns were considered potential Super Bowl contenders in the AFC, which is why it is completely embarrassing to see the team fail to even earn a playoff spot while finishing with just six wins.

With all of the talent Cleveland was fortunate enough to work with, there’s simply no excuse for the Browns to finish 6-10, and will face even more pressure heading into 2020 to turn things around to avoid another year of disappointment.
