The Browns' five turnovers in a 30-6 loss at Chicago brought their season total to 23 and left them minus 11 in takeaway/giveaways.
Receiver/returner Joshua Cribbs said he and his teammates are trying to do too much.
''Guys are trying to bust their tails for the team and a lot of times we're doing too much,'' Cribbs said. ''It happens because we're struggling. We've got guys who are like, 'We need a touchdown now' and they're trying to work extra hard to get it. They're trying to make an extra juke and the ball comes out. It's not really effort, I don't think it's technique. It's guys trying to go above and beyond the call of duty.''
