Going down

December 12, 2010 - Mike McLain
BUFFALO -- The Browns lost to the Bills, 13-6, here Suinday in a game that will damage Browns coach Eric Mangini's future with the team.

It was a putrid performance by the Browns, who had to settle for a Phil Dawson field goal after Peyton Hillis was stopped for no gain at the 1 on the first drive of the game. Hillis fumbled on the Browns' next possession, giving away a chance to take a 10-0 lead.

Next up for the Browns is a road game at Cincinnati. The Bengals have been awful, but don't chalk that game up to a win for the Browns.

The Browns finish with home games against Baltimore and Pittsburgh. That's not an easy way to end another lost season.

Mangini is in trouble. The Browns looked lost on offense against the Bills. The defense played well enough to win, but there were no big turnovers, other than a forced fumble by Marcus Benard early on.

The season is over as far as playoff chances. Mangini needs to win at least two of the final three if not all three to be back next year.

Lots of luck, Eric.
