Cleveland Browns

  • Super Bowl Championships: 0
  • Last Super Bowl Appearance: N/A
  • Claim to Fame: Jim Brown’s 12,312 career rushing yards was a record that held for more than 20 years
  • Claim to Shame: Pick one from a hat. The most recent is their 1-31 over the last two seasons

The Cleveland Browns’ history dates back to 1944, when the team was formed and began play in the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) in 1946. Cleveland was a dominant franchise, winning all four AAFC championship games while posting a 52-4-3 record.

The league folded in 1949 and Cleveland would go on to join the NFL in 1950. Their dominance continued in reaching six straight NFL Championship games from 1950-1955. They won the championship during the first year in the league in 1950 and also in ‘54 and ‘55.

Soon after, future Hall of Fame RB Jim Brown joined the team in 1957. Brown would go on to lead the league in rushing in eight of his nine seasons, and also in total touchdowns in five seasons. He currently ranks as the NFL’s 10th all-time leading rusher.

All that winning left with Jimmy Haslam taking over ownership, though. Under Haslam, the Browns have the lowest winning percentage in their history (20.8%).

The Browns went 0-16 in 2017 with an equally unimpressive 4-12 mark ATS. But the franchise appears to have taken a turn for the better since letting head coach Hue Jackson go. After Jackson went 0-16 in 2017 and started the 2018 season 2-5-1 before getting canned.

Now under the guidance of Freddie Kitchens, the Baker Mayfield-led Browns are one of the most-hyped teams in all of football. Mayfield’s rookie season, plus a handful of top-ten draft picks on defense, are the main reasons for that. Mayfield posted a solid 93.7 passer rating in 13 games, while tossing 27 TDs to just 14 INTs. You’d be hard-pressed to find any knowledgeable football mind who doesn’t think Mayfield will be a top-five passer for the next decade.
