PITTSBURGH (AP) — The faces change, sometimes at a dizzying rate. The results when the Cleveland Browns visit the Pittsburgh Steelers do not.
Each fall the Browns make their way to Heinz Field, typically with a new quarterback and frequently with a new head coach in tow.
And each trip ends in similar fashion: with a quiet bus ride back home after another stinging defeat in a rivalry that hasn't felt like much of one for more than two decades.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is active for the game against the Minnesota Vikings.
He was questionable coming into the day with a left knee injury.
The two-time NFL MVP was held out from practice at midweek but went through the team's light practice on Saturday. Rodgers got hurt in the second quarter last week against the Bears before returning in the second half to lead a come-from-behind victory.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer isn't buying it.
The Green Bay Packers can say all they want that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is day to day with a knee injury. The two-time NFL MVP will be given the whole week to get ready for Sunday's game against Minnesota, coach Mike McCarthy said.
"Yeah, well, you know he walks on water, so I'm sure he's going to play," Zimmer said Wednesday in a conference call.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Khalil Mack got off to a rousing start with the Chicago Bears.
The ending had a familiar feel for his new team.
Make it five straight losses for the Bears to their NFC North archrivals after a 24-23 defeat to Green Bay on Sunday night.
"I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season and I wanted to ... make an impact," Mack said. "But you want to win these games. That's the only thing on my mind. I hate losing."
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers has returned for the Green Bay Packers in the third quarter after being taken off the field on a cart because of a knee injury.
The Packers announced at halftime that the star quarterback was questionable to return. Minutes later, he walked back on to the field and threw warm-up passes with backup DeShone Kizer before the start of the second half.
He returned for the Packers' first drive of the third quarter, with 9:10 left. The Packers were trailing 20-0.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are keeping more quarterbacks than running backs on their season-opening roster.
Undrafted free agent Tim Boyle made the roster as the third quarterback behind starter Aaron Rodgers and backup DeShone Kizer. Green Bay's initial 53-man roster lists just Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery at running back.
GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-9)
New faces: GM Brian Gutekunst, offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, TE Jimmy Graham, TE Marcedes Lewis, QB DeShone Kizer, DE Muhammad Wilkerson, rookie ILB Oren Burks, ILB Antonio Morrison, CB Tramon Williams, rookie CBs Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, P JK Scott.
CLEVELAND BROWNS (0-16)
New faces: GM John Dorsey, QB Tyrod Taylor, WR Jarvis Landry, RB Carlos Hyde, LB Mychal Kendricks, DB Damarious Randall, QB Baker Mayfield, CB Denzel Ward, LT Austin Corbett, RT Chris Hubbard, WR Antonio Callaway, TE Darren Fells, DB E.J. Gaines, WR Jeff Janis, DB Terrance Mitchell, DL Chris Smith, QB Drew Stanton, CB T.J. Carrie.
Key losses: LT Joe Thomas, RB Isaiah Crowell, QB DeShone Kizer, NT Danny Shelton, CB Jason McCourty, CB Jamar Taylor, WR Ricardo Louis.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — It's quite possible that the extent of Aaron Rodgers' playing time in preseason games will be limited to a touchdown drive that went five plays.
GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-9)
OPEN CAMP: July 26, Green Bay, Wisconsin
LAST YEAR: Finished under .500 and out of playoffs for first time since 2008. Offense struggled with QB Aaron Rodgers sidelined for seven games with broken collarbone. Defense plagued by porous secondary and lack of consistent pass rush. Injuries ravaged cornerback position again.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — DeShone Kizer has already had quite the NFL career after just one year in the league.
But what a year it was starting for the winless Cleveland Browns as a rookie.
Now Kizer is in a completely different situation with the Green Bay Packers. There are no expectations to start with Aaron Rodgers healthy again. He might not even be the top backup come fall with Brett Hundley back and hoping to be the top reserve behind Rodgers for a third straight year.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns exercised the fifth-year option on defensive back Damarious Randall, acquired during the offseason from Green Bay.
Cleveland traded quarterback DeShone Kizer and swapped draft picks on March 14 with the Packers for Randall. The 25-year-old is expected to play free safety for the Browns, allowing Jabrill Peppers to move to strong safety, where he played more at Michigan.
Randall was selected by Green Bay with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2015 draft.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Cleveland Browns traded their third quarterback of the offseason, sending Kevin Hogan to the Washington Redskins.
The teams announced the deal Friday that includes swapping sixth-round picks. Cleveland acquires the 188th pick from Washington for No. 205, which it previously acquired from New England for cornerback Jason McCourty.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns continued their quarterback makeover, signing free agent Drew Stanton to a two-year contract.
The veteran is expected to back up Tyrod Taylor, recently acquired in a trade with Buffalo. Cleveland is also expected to draft a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft.
Stanton signed on Friday. He gives the Browns experienced depth and protection in case Taylor gets injured.
CLEVELAND (AP) — No longer part of the Browns' plans, Cody Kessler got passed to a new team.
Cleveland traded its former starting quarterback to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, the latest move for the Browns who have spent the offseason upgrading the team's most troublesome position following a 0-16 season.
In exchange for Kessler, the Browns will receive a conditional 2019 seventh-round draft pick from the Jaguars, who were in the market to find a backup for starter Blake Bortles.
CLEVELAND (AP) — After one difficult season, the Browns threw DeShone Kizer away.
Cleveland traded its starting quarterback on Friday to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for cornerback Damarious Randall, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press. The teams will also swap late-round picks, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because league rules prohibit teams from announcing any trades until next week.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Maybe the losing and laughing will finally stop. The Browns aren't fooling around.
With three stunning trades on the eve of free agency, Cleveland landed a proven starting quarterback, a game-breaking, three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver and a shut-down cornerback.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Leading the Bills to their first playoff appearance in 18 years wasn't enough for Tyrod Taylor to secure his long-term future in Buffalo.
The Bills are starting over at quarterback after agreeing to trade their three-year starter to the Cleveland Browns on Friday, according to two people with direct knowledge of the trade. Cleveland is sending its first pick in the third round to Buffalo.
GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-9)
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: S Morgan Burnett; LB Ahmad Brooks; CBs Davon House and Demetri Goodson; G Jahri Evans; LS Brett Goode; DL Quinton Dial; TE Richard Rodgers; OL Ulrick John; WR Jeff Janis.
RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: LB Joe Thomas; P Jake Schum.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — John Dorsey might make a deal for the top pick in this year's NFL draft — if the price is the right.
At the league's scouting combine on Thursday, the Cleveland Browns general manager took his sales pitch public.
"There are a lot of things we can do at No. 1 and not just get a quarterback," Dorsey said. "If someone wants to come up and make a trade, I'd make a trade, too. Just give me a call and see what's up."
PITTSBURGH (AP) — It was a lost season distilled to one play, filled with hope and achingly familiar anguish for a franchise that's known little else over the last two decades.
Fourth down. Trailing by four. One last shot at avoiding NFL infamy. Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer somehow escaped pressure. He worked to his left and flicked the ball to receiver Corey Coleman all alone on the sideline, well past the first-down marker.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Browns are barreling toward a winless season, and defensive end Myles Garrett had a message for anyone afraid Cleveland will draft them — don't be.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Cleveland Browns got pushed to the brink of a winless season, and the anger and embarrassment were as easy to spot as the mistakes they made.
DeShone Kizer called it a low point in his life. Coach Hue Jackson made his feelings clear, too.
Kizer threw two more interceptions and the Browns committed two turnovers in the red zone on the way to a 20-3 loss to the struggling Chicago Bears on a snowy Sunday.
CHICAGO (AP) — The snow was steady for most of the day, making for treacherous footing at Soldier Field.
The announced crowd of 41,257 sipped on all sorts of beverages while trying to stay as warm as possible, and stadium workers used shovels to clear the playing surface during timeouts.
A perfect scene for a proud son of Ohio playing his hometown team.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Time is running out on the Cleveland Browns with two games left in the regular season.
And the idea they could wind up without a win is weighing on quarterback DeShone Kizer.
"You definitely feel it," he said.
A Christmas Eve victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday would be a neat gift and a welcome relief for a team with nothing to celebrate this season.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Loose with the football, DeShone Kizer held onto his starting job.
Cleveland's rookie quarterback, who upped his NFL-leading interception total to 19 with two more picks Sunday, will start this week when the winless Browns play in Chicago.
"It is still DeShone," coach Hue Jackson said Monday.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Before the Browns' home finale, a couple exchanged wedding vows in the stadium's Dawg Pound bleachers.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Aaron Rodgers stood on the sideline, fighting off the December chill inside a large green Packers jacket and stocking cap.
His game-day look could soon be more familiar.
Relegated to being a cheerleader since breaking his collarbone in October, Rodgers may be back on the field next Sunday for Green Bay, which kept its playoff hopes ticking by rallying to beat the Cleveland Browns 27-21 in overtime.
CLEVELAND (AP) — DeShone Kizer sat at his locker and spoke privately for several minutes with new general manager John Dorsey, who did his best to encourage the rookie.
There was plenty to discuss. The Browns had blown another one.
Kizer's interception in overtime set up Green Bay's winning touchdown as Cleveland fell to 0-13 for the second straight year with a 27-21 loss on Sunday to the Green Bay Packers, who survived another week without quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
