Browns Zane Gonzalez misses four kicks in heartbreaking loss to Saints

Browns Zane Gonzalez misses four kicks in heartbreaking loss to Saints”

I would say "there's always next week", but that probably won't be the case for Gonzalez.

The Saints began the 4-play, 18-yard touchdown drive at the Browns' 18 after safety Marcus Williams intercepted a pass quarterback Tyrod Taylor intended for tight end David Njoku. However, the Browns would lose at the end, 21-18.

The Browns remain winless since December 24, 2016.

Moments after Zane Gonzalez - or Gone-zalez as he will likely soon become - missed a 44-yard field goal try early in the fourth quarter on September 16, the FOX cameras inside the Superdome zeroed in on Hue Jackson.

The missed kick gave the Saints the ball on the New Orleans 34, and from there they used nine plays to cut the lead to 12-10.

But, the Browns took the lead late in the fourth quarter and the Barley House went wild with cheers and chants of "here we go, Brownies; here we go". They've been frightful on defense and lost and mostly disgusting on offense and won.

Kamara had 99 yards from scrimmage, including 53 receiving on six catches to go with his successful run on a 2-point conversion. But New Orleans didn't cash in on several chances, and it has to have a little more effectiveness when it does run the ball (23 carries for 62 yards; 22 for 61 when you erase Brees' kneeldown in "Victory" formation). His final two misses of the game were on the go-ahead extra-point attempt and the game-tying field goal attempt.

After wide receiver Rashard Higgins dropped a short pass from Taylor over the middle on third-and-6 from the Saints' 26, Gonzalez missed a 44-yard field goal wide left with 14:16 left. Both extra-point attempts went wide left. This time, his effort was from 52 yards out. Reactions poured in about Gonzalez, and you can probably guess that a lot of them featured frustration, anger, and calls for the kicker to be released. In Week 1, they set up for a winning field goal in overtime against Pittsburgh, only to have it blocked.

So the Saints are 1-1 in the most exhaustingly hard way imaginable.
