Cleveland Browns fans are calling for a quarterback change in the wake of Sunday's humiliating 38-15 Week 6 loss to the New England Patriots at home. After three straight losses, Browns fans feel it's time for a change under center with the team now sitting at 2-4.

Cleveland supporters may get their wish, as it sounds like head coach Kevin Stefanski might be considering the possibility.

After a strong start to the year, starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett has floundered during the Browns' recent skid. He has twice as many interceptions (4) as touchdowns (2) over his last three games while completing just 55.3% of his passes.

While the initial plan was for Brissett to hold down the fort until Deshaun Watson returns from his 11-game suspension, Cleveland fans are getting impatient. If the Browns lose too many games before then, it may be too late for Watson to save their season.

Brissett should continue to start for the time being, but Stefanski didn't rule out the possibility of inserting backup QB Joshua Dobbs later in games to provide a spark if Bissett is struggling. Dobbs hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2020 and only has six career games under his belt (zero starts) from his two seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Browns will try to snap their losing streak on the road against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. The Ravens are currently favored by 6.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds for this AFC North divisional matchup.
