Browns Coach Hue Jackson is now 1-14 in his first year on the job, and at least for now that probably feels like 14-1.

“I [didn’t] want [0-16] next to any of our names associated with this organization,” Jackson said after Saturday’s game, per the team’s official transcript. “We got that monkey off our back.”

The Browns held on to beat the Chargers, 20-17, after blocking a field goal in the final four minutes and seeing another Chargers’ field goal sail wide right as time expired. The Browns hadn’t won in over a calendar year — not even in the preseason — and their new coaching staff and front office finally got to celebrate a victory.

“It still was not easy, as you can see,” Jackson said. “It is a grind for us, but that is the kind of game I knew it would be. Our players kept fighting, and we were able to get it done.

“Today, everybody gets game balls. The whole organization gets game balls because they did a good job.
