The Browns won Sunday, clinching their first playoff berth since 2002 to end the league’s longest postseason drought.

After beating the Steelers 24-22, head coach Kevin Stefanski said he was proud of the team for showing resilience.

“We achieved what we set out to do today,” Stefanski said, via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. “But there’s work left to be done. The goal was never to just make the playoffs.”

Still, Stefasnki acknowledged what making the postseason means to those who have been waiting for nearly two decades to see the Browns play meaningful games in January.

“I’m really just happy for our fans. They deserve this,” Stefanski said, via Jake Trotter of ESPN. “And we’re happy to deliver this to them.”

Cleveland will travel to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers for the wild card round next week.

  1. Yes the Clowns fans deserve this. I am very happy for some of the most loyal fans in the NFL. Now after saying that I hope you lose next week.

    There ain’t no raining on our parade. We’ve endured 2 decades of bad calls, controversial calls, no calls, phanton calls, and bad bounces (ok and lots of bad teams). The Browns earned and deserve this , as do the fans! Go Browns!!

  4. This team had most of the pieces last year. Makes me wonder how far they would have gone with a real coach then.

  5. I’m not a Cleveland fan but as a football fan I’m happy for you, any team that makes it after years of suck football deserves a little congratulations it’s only fair. most everyone laughed when some said browns would make the playoffs and guess who’s in.

  6. Steelers have nothing left in the tank. The last five games prove that the franchise has imploded.

    They did not call that all day, so the refs stayed consistent there with a no-call…….not to mention that Claypool would have needed Shaq O’neal on his shoulders to even touch that pass because it was so high……get over it.
