Oct 2, 2016; Landover, MD, USA; Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) celebrates after the final touchdown against the Cleveland Browns during the second half at FedEx Field.

Duke Johnson fumbled the football in Sunday's game between the Browns and Redskins, and Washington was awarded the football.

A 14-0 first-quarter deficit to the Washington Redskins had turned into a 20-17 third-quarter lead. At 0-4 the Browns are the NFL's only winless team - and they are home Sunday against New England - and the losing streak to start the season is heightened by a number of major injuries, turnovers, blown leads, missed opportunities and rotten luck.

If you ask Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman, Josh Norman is the best defensive back in the NFL.

But despite the loss to Washington, Jackson expects the Browns to keep challenging for that first victory of the season.

Return to Vindy.com and read Monday's Vindicator sports section for complete details. Cleveland was controlling the game and had driven from its 23-yard line to the Washington 16 with 1:14 left. "I think the ref was still trying to find out where the ball was", Browns quarterback Cody Kessler said after the 31-20 Browns loss. Running back Matt Jones also had a huge day running for 117 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries.

Another: Suspended receiver Josh Gordon said he is entering rehab, and Jackson said the Browns "moved on" from the playmaker. Twice the Browns were flagged for pass interference, penalties that led to 71 yards of offense.

Cleveland answered with an 81-yard drive to get on the board. "We're going to do things right", Jackson said.

Browns running back Duke Johnson: "That's what's most upsetting: We're knocking on the door".

Pryor's transformation from Ohio State quarterback to Cleveland Browns receiver took a few years to get going, but last week he caught eight passes for 144 yards and even played some quarterback and one snap at safety during the game.

"I still think there's more in there, " said Jackson, who joked that he needs to figure out a way to keep Crowell from getting exhausted, maybe even by using an oxygen tank on the field.

Reed made nine catches for 73 yards.
