Cleveland Browns to change kicker after Zane Gonzalez misses

The Cleveland Browns are expected to change kickers this week after Zane Gonzalez missed four attempts that cost the team eight points in a three-point loss Sunday, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Gonzalez missed two field goals and two extra points in the 21-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

"It's on me 100 percent," Gonzalez said after the game. "I can't be too mad at myself because I'm the one that did it, you know what I mean? I can't blame it on [anybody] else. It sucks because we were so close to that win, and it's been so long. I just let everybody down."

It's been 631 days since the Browns last won a game; that came on Dec. 24, 2016, and although the Browns tied the Steelers on opening day, that also could have been a win. Gonzalez had what could have been a game-winning kick blocked in the final seconds.

The Browns selected Gonzalez in the seventh round (224th overall) of the 2017 draft. He made 17 of 25 field goal attempts and 25 of 26 PATs in his rookie season.

ESPN's Pat McManamon contributed to this report.
