December 16, 1979- The Cleveland Browns finished the year with a 9-7 record. Quarterback Brian Sipe did all he could to try to bring the team to a greater amount of wins but the team was plagued by injuries all year. The 1979 season had disappointment and excitement, as 10 of 16 games were decided by 5 points or less . The Kardiac Kids were born!

September 7, 1980- The Cleveland Browns looked to build on a successful campaign and make it even better. Brian Sipe passed for 233 yards and 2 touchdowns but fell short to the New England Patriots. Browns 17-Patriots 34. The Browns had no idea what was in store for them.

The next four games were closer, each game was decided by 7 points or less. The Browns record: 2-3.

October 12, 1980- The Browns faced the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks were a struggling team, trying to find their identity and so were the Browns. The Browns needed a key victory and a key victory they got. Brian Sipe passed for 201 yards and a touchdown to lead the Browns to victory. Mike Pruitt led the running attack with 116 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Browns handled the Seahawks with a 27-3 victory.

October 12, 2014- The Browns may have found their identity as the Kardiac Kids II! The Browns were one of 4 teams in NFL history to have each of their first 4 games decided by 3 points or less. Just like in 1980, the Browns needed a key victory. The Browns faced the Steelers, and they were led by the 2014 Brian, Brian Hoyer. Brian Hoyer passed for 217 yards and 1 touchdown. The Browns stayed in control for all of the game. The Browns beat the Steelers 31-10 to show the NFL they were relevant once again.

The 1980 team made it to the playoffs by close wins and with a guy named Brian. The 2014 Browns are playing exactly the same way, hopefully the Browns will change one thing. They will win the Super Bowl!
