New Orleans made a field goal on its next possession to take a 21-18 win. Six plays later, Brees found Michael Thomas on a bubble screen for a 2-yard touchdown to cut the Browns lead to 12-10 with 8:41 remaining in the game.

I would say "there's always next week", but that probably won't be the case for Gonzalez.

Ahead of their matchup with the New Orleans Saints in Week 2, the Cleveland Browns made a move which sent some shockwaves throughout their team and the rest of the National Football League for that matter. Credit the Browns' defense, which held New Orleans to 275 yards of offense at the Superdome, and QB Tyrod Taylor, who played a pretty solid game even without Gordon's services.

Gonzalez's day began with a pair of 39-yard field goal conversions that gave the Browns a 6-3 lead over the Saints, but that second kick was his final make of the game.

The Browns (0-1-1) drove in the waning moments to set up kicker Zane Gonzalez for a 52-yard field goal, but he missed the kick wide right with three seconds remaining.

Here's a look at the top plays that kept the Browns winless streak alive, now at 19 straight games and counting.

Amazingly, Taylor had the Browns in field-goal range after quick completions of 26 and 16 yards.

Browns lose by 3. The Browns tied the score 18-18 with 1:16 left, but Gonzalez missed the extra-point kick wide left.

The Saints managed to only have 150 yards of offense through 3 quarters, committed 2 turnovers, and missed a field goal for good measure, and still won anyway. Tackle Larry Ogunjobi sacked Brees twice, blitzing cornerback T.J. Carrie got to Brees on another third down, and Ogunjobi would have had another in the fourth quarter if not for Derrick Kindred's illegal contact penalty.

It's been a rough season for Browns kicker Zane Gonzalez. In time they really - no, really - might be very good. "I was ready to drink some Bud Light, but that's not happening today", said one Browns fan.

But for the third time in a row, Gonzalez missed the kick wide to the left.
