TAMPA, FLA.: The Browns held their own and maybe even had an edge this week in two joint practices with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but those performances didn’t translate to their third preseason game Friday night at Raymond James Stadium.
“We didn’t play as well. That’s for sure,” coach Hue Jackson said after the Browns lost 30-13 to the Bucs and fell to 0-3 this preseason. “I’m not going to say we left it on the practice field, but I know we didn’t play like I think we could play. We’ve got a lot of work to do still, and that’s what I told our team.”
