Wide receiver Jarvis Landry offered a short four-word response when asked after the game on his message to Gonzalez.

"It's on me 100 percent", Gonzalez said after the game.

And tragedy continued for Browns kicker Zane Gonzalez once he was in position to tie the game up and send it to overtime.

Cleveland Browns kicker Zane Gonzalez (2) is consoled by long snapper Charley Hughlett (47) after missing on an extra point attempt against the New Orleans Saints in the second half at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Like the first missed PAT, Gonzalez pulled the kick wide to the left.

Two Browns' possessions later, the normally careful Tyrod Taylor threw a pass over the middle in Cleveland territory that Saints safety Marcus Williams picked off and returned 22 yards to the Browns 18.

"Kicked well in practice", Browns coach Hue Jackson said. "I can't be too mad at myself because I'm the one that did it, you know what I mean?"

Amazingly, Taylor had the Browns in field-goal range after quick completions of 26 and 16 yards. We all know Payton's aggressive nature is a feature not a bug of how he coaches, but my gosh, throwing 2 passes late and allowing the Browns almost 30 seconds and a timeout is the Sean Payton experience on steroids.

But for the third time in a row, Gonzalez missed the kick wide to the left. Instead of trailing 7-3, the Browns came away tied after Wil Lutz's 31-yard field goal. But Gonzalez's 52-yard try was wide right.

As Phil Dawson said when he was the Browns' kicker from 1999-2012: "You're only as good as your next kick", and that was a veteran talking about how tenuous the job of a kicker can be. "I was ready to drink some Bud Light, but that's not happening today", said one Browns fan.

"I still have confidence in him moving forward, and we're going to need him to continue to keep making kicks throughout the season". Everything's not going to be ideal all the time. Josh Gordon is likely gone by Monday afternoon, and Gonzalez could be right behind him.
