Shortly after the Cleveland Browns completed just the second 0-16 season in NFL history, the team's Twitter account posted a GIF that could sum up the somber -- if not comical -- tone of the moment.

The image features Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, who starred in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." The GIF zooms in on Affleck, who looks introspective and somewhat sad.
The words over the GIF represent the opening line of the Simon and Garfunkel song "Sounds of Silence." The movie, much like the Browns' recent history, was widely panned, and Affleck said the criticism was fair.
The Browns' 28-24 loss in Pittsburgh capped a winless season and 1-31 record in Hue Jackson's two years as head coach in Cleveland.
The 2008 Detroit Lions were the only other team to go 0-16.
