Browns coach Hue Jackson believes owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam still support him despite the team’s continued losing.

Jackson said his confidence is based on “conversations” he’s had with both the Haslams and general manager John Dorsey. The Browns (2-4-1) lost in overtime on Sunday and dropped to 3-35-1 in two-plus seasons under Jackson.

Jackson disputed on Monday that he was not accepting responsibility for the loss following Sunday’s 26-23 defeat, which ended with Tampa Bay kicking a 59-yard field goal.

Jackson said postgame comments he made about “diving” deeper into the offense were not an attack on coordinator Todd Haley or his staff, but a willingness to do anything to help.

Jackson said he has no intention of taking over play-calling duties.

The Browns have shown some improvement, but continue to be plagued by penalties, slow starts and an inability to finish games.
