In honor of the Browns' return to postseason play...  

That's awesome...because that's as close to anything resembling the Lombardi trophy he'll ever touch.

Interesting factoid about the Bucs @ WTF game:   

 

In the past 20 years, the league has seen two instances where a 7-win team won their division.    In both cases, the 7-win team hosted a supposedly better team in the wildcard round....and in both cases, the 7-win team won and advanced to the divisional round.

 

2010:    The  7-9 Seahawks hosted the 11-5  Saints and won  41-36.    (This was the game where  Marshawn Lynch had his famous "Beast Mode" run.) 

 

2014:   The 7-8-1  Panthers beat the 11-5 Cardinals  27-16.

The 7 playoff teams thing makes so much more sense when you see the TV schedule. 

 

You can make more money selling 6 playoff games on Wildcard Weekend instead of only 4. 

Owners have to be crying. Finally get a home playoff game which is gravy, and no one to put in the stands, yet have to pay them just the same.

The Cardinals lost yesterday to a team that had a QB that had never played an NFL game. How sad is that?
