Just four days before the Browns' Week 3 game, it looked like Cleveland's season was over after just two weeks of football. Third-stringer Brian Hoyer was the starting quarterback and the third overall pick in the 2012 draft was now a Colt instead of a Brown.

Tanking for Teddy Bridgewater or Jadeveon Clowney seemed like Cleveland's goal.

Then the Browns won. That confused Twitter users who thought tanking was their target.

As for Trent Richardson's new team, this tweet perfectly sums up the Colts' methodical dismantling of last year's NFC champions.

The 49ers aren't the only 2012 NFC playoff team having trouble.

The Jaguars are having trouble in all aspects of football, especially the offense.

Good news: The Jaguars have that stud third-round punter.

This is an appropriate way to define a career.

Lions tight end Joseph Fauria actually performed 'N Sync's signature "Bye, Bye, Bye" dance after scoring a touchdown. After the game, he tweeted the lyrics to confirm his dance.
