The Cleveland Browns didn’t lose their opener and are off to their best start since 2004.

What is perhaps more telling is they didn’t win their opener, either.

The Browns failed to win at home vs. the rival Pittsburgh Steelers despite forcing six turnovers, and they will be looking to build on the result when they take on the Saints in New Orleans on Sunday.

Part of the reasons for the missed opportunity was failures of the offense, particularly the passing game.

One game into the 2018 season, heat is already starting to build on Browns starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Taylor has completed 62 percent of his passes in his career, but he was only 15 of 40 for 197 yards in the opener played on a rainy, miserable day in Cleveland. The resulting 21-21 tie with the Steelers left fans clamoring for rookie Baker Mayfield, the first overall pick in the 2018 draft.

Weather will not be a factor Sunday when the Browns visit the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome. Taylor did not use weather as an excuse for the way he performed in his first game with the Browns after being acquired in March for a third-round draft choice in a trade with the Buffalo Bills, but the eighth-year veteran definitely expects more from himself on Sunday.

“When you look back at the film (in the opener), which we did, there were things that we beat ourselves on,” Taylor said Wednesday. “I think that between the first and second game — of course, for a new group that’s playing together — you definitely have room to make a tremendous improvement. That’s what we have to do this week. Continue to keep focusing on the details, learn from what we did not do so well last week and harp on those details throughout the week so that we can go out and execute at a high level this weekend.”
