The Cleveland Browns defense turned in a disappointing performance against the Bengals in Week 17's 33-23 loss. Cleveland forced just one turnover and notched one sack in the loss.
Cleveland's run defense was shredded by Joe Mixon, who gained a career-high 162 yards and scored twice. Several players appeared to not be giving full effort on the field. This unit has plenty of talent but has yet to develop into a reliable fantasy defense.
