Fake Fumble (2016)
Cleveland played the Redskins in 2016 but they couldn’t catch a break if their lives depended on it. One incredible moment saw them recover a fumble but Washington still got the ball. This was even though Duke Johnson made a recovery for the Browns (via CBS Sports).
The officials didn’t think so and awarded possession to the Redskins. It was an egregious decision that infuriated the Cleveland fanbase because they had a dreadful season. In the end, the officials moved on with their lives but this had a direct effect on the Browns’ season.
