The Cleveland Browns have a long history with the primetime stage that is Monday Night Football. The longest, actually, outside of any team besides the New York Jets. Yes, that’s right, your Cleveland Brownies won the very first edition of ABC’s Monday Night Football back in September of 1970 on a game-sealing pick-six by none other than backup linebacker Billy Andrews.
Since that fateful night back some 45 years ago, the Browns have had their fair share of experience on MNF. The franchise has compiled a record of 15-14 on Monday Night, good for the 14th best winning percentage in the league since the dawn of the program. A pretty middle-of-the-road résumé, sure, but a great deal of anguish, joy, an excitement has gone into that overall mediocre record (sound familiar?).
Let’s take a look at the the good, the bad, and the ugly memories that the Browns have given us on MNF since 1999.
