The Cleveland Browns' 2016 season is already looking down, and it’s only April.

Cantor Technology has released its betting lines for Weeks 1 through 16 in the NFL, and they have the Browns as underdogs for each of their first 15 games.

ESPN’s Kieran Darcy first noticed this hilarious occurrence.

I mean, does it get more depressing than this? (It probably already has for Browns fans.) In August, you usually hear that training camp cliché about how every team has a chance at the Super Bowl. But not the Browns.

No, for Cleveland, as early as April 21 the team is expected to be hot garbage. This comes even after the Browns actually made a good trade!

You know that other NFL cliché about how every team with a modicum of success “defied all odds”? Well if the Browns win a single game this season, they can actually claim that to be true.
