With week sixteen of the NFL season basically in the books, these three teams put on abysmal performances. The Cleveland Browns blew their last best chance at a win, while the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys both lost must-win games and were eliminated from playoff contention.

Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns went into Sunday's matchup against the Chicago Bears with seemingly their best chance to get their first win of the season. After all, head coach Hue Jackson's last two wins had both come on Christmas Eve games and the Bears had lost six of their last seven games.

Despite the Browns defense recording five sacks, recovering a fumble and holding Chicago's running backs to 53 yards on 24 carries, Cleveland lost 20-3. At halftime, the Browns where only down 6-3, as they blocked the Bears extra point and despite quarterback DeShone Kizer's interception in the end zone. On the first play of the second half, the Browns intercepted Mitchell Trubisky, but they were offsides.

Chicago then went on to score, the Browns went three-and-out, and the Bears went down and scored again.

The Browns ended up turning it over two more times, managing nothing offensively for most of the rest of the game. Now, they must defeat the Steelers in Pittsburgh to avoid going 0-16.

Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions needed a win in Cincinnati against the struggling Bengals to keep their playoff hopes alive.

At halftime, the Lions held a slim 7-6 lead, with the Bengals field goal before halftime being set up off a Matthew Stafford interception. There was little offense in a first half with eight punts and two turnovers.

However, the second half saw a flurry of scoring and a key missed field goal by the Lions. Detroit scored with 9:49 left in the fourth quarter to take a 17-16 lead.

The Bengals then countered with an 11 play, 53-yard drive for a field goal to retake the lead.

Detroit got the ball back and went three-and-out, having to punt and rely on their defense. Cincinnati faced a third-and-six with 1:54 left, as the Lions had a chance to get the ball back. However, Giovani Bernard managed a 12-yard touchdown on the play, putting the game away at 26-17.

Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys played at home against the Seattle Seahawks, with the loser being eliminated from the playoffs.

Dallas got out to a 6-0 lead in the second following a scoreless first quarter. Dez Bryant's fumble would cost them this lead, as Seattle's offense took advantage and scored to make it 7-6. However, Dallas rallied and managed another field goal before halftime to retake the lead, 9-7.

On the Cowboys second play of the third quarter, Dak Prescott got pick-sixed and Seattle retook the lead. Dallas then drove down to make another field goal and forced the Seahawks to go three-and-out.

The Cowboys then drove down but Prescott got intercepted again at the 25-yard line, with Seattle then capitalizing on offense by scoring again to make it 21-12. Kicker Dan Bailey then missed 34 and 48-yard field goals that would have made it a one-score game, with the last miss effectively ending the contest.
