I had to watch more Rocky Balboa YouTube clips than I usually do on a typical day. On the surface, the Browns got beat by a one-loss team. A win would have clinched a playoff birth. However, there is a plethora of nuance to this game and situation that I wanted to write my main thoughts on the Cleveland *insert your swear word of choice* Browns.
Thought #1: It’s Not Over Until it’s Over
The Browns still have a chance to make the playoffs with a bunch of different scenarios in Week 17. The simplest is a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers at home. It gets more complicated to rely on other teams such as the Indianapolis Colts losing etc.
