For a second, it seemed like the Cleveland Browns were going to pull off the unthinkable— actually win one game. But that quickly became another dream for a team that joins the 2008 Detroit Lions as the second NFL team to finish the season 0-16.
It was a play that perfectly sums up the Browns' season. DeShone Kizer threw the ball to Corey Coleman on a fourth-down pass. It would have been the last chance for the Browns to score at a crucial time during the last minutes of the game.
Instead, Coleman dropped the ball— a moment he says will stick with him "forever".

"I can talk about a play or so I didn't make in college. I still remember those to this day," Coleman said following Sunday's game. "I've got to look past this and move forward and have a great offseason and come back even stronger."
0-16 didn’t happen because of Corey Coleman, but his drop will be the lasting image of it, and that’s a bummer. this photo hurts my souls pic.twitter.com/wSAFzCZDUB
