The 2018-19 NFL season kicked off last week and fans around the world are rejoicing! It’s a new season, ripe with hope and possibilities and lots of beer. Will this be the year the Patriots finally release their stranglehold on the AFC? Who will claim the NFC this year? How long will the Browns losing streak continue?
The answer to those first two questions will take months to sort out. As for the third, well, the Browns gave us the most Browns answer ever. Facing off against bitter rival the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday, Cleveland did seemingly everything needed to win. They forced six Steeler turnovers while committing only one themselves. They outscored their opponents 14-0 in the fourth quarter to climb back into the game and force overtime. They set themselves up for the game-winning field goal and looked poised to end their perpetual skid. But this is the Browns and nothing is what it seems in Cleveland. Their potential game-winning field goal was swatted by Pittsburgh defenders (clearly aided by the hand of God). The result? A 21-21 tie… Well, it’s not a loss, right Hue?
Of course, the internet found the entire thing hilarious and immediately began trolling the still winless Browns.
