The Cleveland Browns are currently on their bye week after coming from a 12-game losing streak, which is now taking a huge toll on head coach Hue Jackson. It seems the Browns' only chance of winning at least one game this season is by bringing back quarterback Robert Griffin III.

On Sunday, the Browns faced off against the New York Giants. And, like their previous games this season, the Browns lost.

After being slapped with a 0-12 record, Jackson has now become very emotional. During a post-game conference following the Week 12 game, the coach admitted that he's taking the team's record hard.

"Being 0-12 is probably... the hardest thing ever," he said during the press conference.

"It's been a long 12 weeks," he added.

According to Jackson, before heading to the conference, he had a post-game assessment with the management of the Cleveland franchise. Despite the team's losing streak, he noted that his job as the coach of the Browns is still secured.

"I'm going to be here," he said. "I don't like losing. I never have and never will. I've had my butt kicked up enough over my shoulders enough this season that I really don't need my butt kicked anymore."

Although the Browns can already say goodbye to being in the playoffs this season, Jackson promised that everything will change next year.

"I told our players, and I mean this and I'm going to tell all of you: This will be the last time, this year, that we ever feel the way we feel," he said. "I know that in my heart. I know that without question."

Since the beginning of the season, the team has been struggling on the field. This started after Robert Griffin III suffered a major injury. But, over the past couple of days, Griffin has been spending his time practicing with the squad.

Although it is not yet exactly clear when he will return, the team expects him to be leading the Browns sometime in December. Right now, he is the team's only hope to improve the offense and maybe even win a couple of games before the season ends, ESPN reported.
