The Cleveland Browns luck in playoff games has never been good and that hasn’t changed this week, as the Browns, down 16-3 and driving turned the ball over in one of the most irritating ways possible. Baker Mayfield hit Rashard Higgins for a completion down to the two yard line, where Higgins then reached for the end zone and fumbled out of the end zone resulting in a touchback.

The Kansas City Chiefs now get the ball and their 16-3 lead with just over a minute remaining in the first half.
