It’s been 50 years and counting, that is how long the Browns faithful have been waiting for their team to reach success in the modern world of the NFL. It has also been a long and gruelling 18 years and counting since the city of Cleveland last saw their football team in the postseason, when they went down to Pittsburgh in the wildcard playoffs in 2002.
However, it wasn’t all like that, not in the early stages of Brown’s existence. The Browns were established in 1944 thanks to Cleveland businessman Arthur B. McBride who acquired the services of the franchise.
Before they began their journey in the NFL in 1950, the Browns were playing in the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) for the first four years and were dominant, claiming four titles in just as many years.
That success didn’t stop when they joined the NFL as they were successful in the 50s and in the late 60s which saw them claim 11 American/Eastern conference and three NFL century division titles.
However, it was in the 50s that they really asserted themselves as they won six straight Eastern conference titles between 1950-1955, with winning their first championship in their debut NFL year, they also claimed the division title in 1957.
It took a while before the Browns reached that success again, but in 1964 the Browns claimed their maiden and only NFL championship (before it became the Super Bowl), under Blanton Collier who coached the side to a 27 point win keeping the Baltimore Colts scoreless.
The rest of the 60s were pretty bleak even though they won the conference championships in 1968 and 1969, but in both those years they lost the NFL championship. Much like the decade there wasn’t too much to cheer for in the 1970s although they did make the playoffs in 1971 and 1972 but fell in the divisional round on both occasions to Baltimore Colts in 1971 and the Miami Dolphins in 1972.
The Browns began the 80s with a bang claiming the 1980 and 1982 AFC central titles, however, they couldn’t sustain their momentum as they bundled out in the divisional round in 1980 and in the wildcard in 1982.
For the rest of the decade the Browns didn’t see any postseason action until they picked up quarterback Bernie Kosar in the 1985 draft, who would make 108 apparences, make 1853 passes completed and make 116 passing touchdowns throughout his nine years at the Browns.
Kosar sparked the Browns to be a prominent feature in postseason success since his arrival in the mid 80s. The Browns began to be successful once again claiming the AFC Central title in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1989, as they made the postseason.
They didn’t get far though, as they lost the divisional round in 1985, lost the conference championships in 1986, 1987 and 1989 and lost in the wildcard in 1988. The Browns couldn’t continue the momentum they had in the late 80s as they only made the playoffs once during the 90s.
For the first time in a long time the Browns finally made the playoffs in 1994 after finishing second in the AFC Central division with an 11-5 record, which earned themselves a wildcard playoff spot where they played New England Patriots. Bill Belichick’s won the first round of the postseason defeating the Patriots but were knocked out in the divisional round where they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It would be another eight years before the Browns played in the postseason when they appeared in the wildcard playoffs in 2002, however, they went down to Pittsburgh Steelers once again. The Browns haven’t achieved a postseason appearance since then and if the last few years are anything to go by they may be waiting a little longer.
If you are a fan of the Cleveland Browns, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Cleveland Browns have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Cleveland Browns:
In January of this year, Kevin Stefanski put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, making him the franchise’s fourth coach since 2018. Throughout his 13-year coaching career with the Minnesota Vikings, Stefanski had a variety of titles and coaching positions, operating exclusively with the offensive unit.
With weapons such Baker Mayfield (QB), Nick Chubb (RB), Odell Beckham Jnr (WR) and Jarvis Landry (WR) all having underperformed in unison under predecessor Freddie Kitchens, Stefanski’s experiences in coaching positions such as a running backs coach, quarterbacks coach, tight ends coach and offensive coordinator leave him well equipped to take over the Browns heavily talented offence in 2020.
With the passing accuracy of quarterback Baker Mayfield under constant scrutiny, a player of Nick Chubb’s ability at running back will be a huge asset for Cleveland’s offense in 2020. Taken with the 35th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Chubb’s rookie season saw him finish third in rushing yards (996) and third in rushing touchdowns (8) amongst his rookie class.
His rookie year also included a 92-yard touchdown run against the Falcon’s which remains the longest rushing touchdown in Browns franchise history. A breakout second season in the NFL saw Chubb start all 16 games, rushing another 8 touchdowns and collecting the second most rush yards in the NFL (1494).
This certainly proved himself to be one of the most dangerous weapons not only on the Browns stacked offense but across the league. Coming into 2020, Chubb will be looking to take out the rushing title, and make his case as one of the best young running backs in the NFL.
Having been reinstated by the NFL, Myles Garrett is set to be back playing for the Browns in week one of preseason. Garrett was indefinitely suspended from the league following an incident that involved removing Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet and striking him with it. Garrett’s indefinite suspension was the second-longest for on-field misconduct in NFL history.
Garrett’s social media presence would suggest he is coming into the 2020 season with a vengeance. The 2017 #1 pick, earned Pro Bowl and All Pro second team honours in 2018, collecting 44 tackles, 13.5 sacks and forcing 3 fumbles (all career highs to date) and will be looking to rediscover that form in the 2020 season. Having recently signed a five-year contract extension worth $125 million, Garrett is now the highest paid defensive player in the NFL per year, earning $25 million annually.
The Browns finished the 2019 season with the worst against the spread record in the AFC north division with a 5-10-1 record and the third worst in the NFL. When they were the home team they had the second worst record against the spread with 3-4-1.
The Browns had the second worst away against the spread with 2-6-0 (the worst in the AFC North). When looking at the over/under they had a 8-8-0 record placing them 18th overall (and second best in the AFC North division).
They had the second best home and away record when it came to over/under in the AFC North as they were 4-4-0 (they were ranked 18th in the overall NFL standings) at home and 4-4-0 away (ranked 21 when it came to the overall NFL standings).
Despite not playing in the postseason since the early 2000s the Browns were valued at +1500 before their opening 2019 season (a defeat to Tennessee) and rose up a few days later on 12 September to +2933.
A win against the Jets saw the value drop to +2500 on September 19, but even after their win against Baltimore on October 30 wasn’t enough to convince the value to drop as two days later they were +2733.
After a four game losing streak which saw the Browns being valued at +24167, they bounced back and beat Buffalo which saw the value drop on November 12 to +1333. From there the Browns won three in a row, but even that didn’t translate as by December 2 they were valued at +21667.
The Browns lost their remaining three games of the season and by December 17 (with their last two games being played on December 23 and December 30) the hope was gone as they were valued at their highest odds of the season at +100000.
