Browns Will Stick With RG3 As They Search For First Win

Comment: Off

CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns coach Hue Jackson is sticking with Robert Griffin III as his starting quarterback despite Cleveland’s 0-14 start.

Jackson had considered changes following Sunday’s 33-13 loss in Buffalo, the Browns’ sixth straight by double digits. However, Jackson said Monday that Griffin showed more improvement in his second start since Sept. 11.

Jackson said he won’t hesitate to make a switch in Saturday’s home game against San Diego and that he wants to get another look at rookie Cody Kessler, who made eight starts while Griffin recovered from a broken shoulder bone.

Jackson feels he’s still getting a solid effort from his players, but acknowledged being worried about a carry-over from all the losses.

The Browns are the fourth team in NFL history to go 0-14. The 2008 Detroit Lions are the only team to lose all 16 in a season.
