Brandon Weeden Begins NFL Debut Against Eagles By Getting Trapped Under American Flag

Quarterback Brandon Weeden had one of the worst games in the history of the Browns franchise during his debut on Sunday against the Eagles. The 28-year-old rookie finished the game 12 of 35 for 118 yards and four brutal interceptions. It all led to a quarterback rating of 5.1 -- one of the lowest in the history of the league.

Of course, this abominable showing was all foreshadowed before the game even started when Weeden got stuck under the giant American flag they unfurl across the field for the National Anthem. Weeden was trapped under it for several moments. Just another opening day on the Lake. Only in the Cleveland. Video of the mishap after the jump:
