It was a tumultuous weekend for many franchises across the NFL. Whether it’s CoVid-19, insane quarterback shortages, or staff firings. Not to mention shocking results and bad news for punters -thanks, Philly.
Amid all this, the Cleveland Browns pulled off something unheard of during the past 13 years - they clinched.
Not the playoffs, not yet at least. However, with their 27-25 win against the Jaguars they did clinch their season from going into the record books as another losing season. With games to come against the Titans, Ravens, Giants, Jets, and Steelers - the very worst Cleveland can do is stay at .500 for the season.
This feat is remarkable because the Browns haven’t had a winning season since 2007 when they went 10-6. In the next decade that followed, they went 38-120.
The Browns have been interesting, to say the least. Their roster is stacked with talent and the 2018 No. 1 draft pick Baker Mayfield has added plenty of excitement. Unfortunately, no one knows how this will turn out, and Baker’s ability to be dreadful one minute and unbelievable the next doesn’t help.
