Brown out

With the score tied at 27 with three seconds remaining in last evening's Monday Night Football game, the Cleveland Browns lined up to attempt a 51-yard field goal to give them the win over the Baltimore Ravens. Rookie kicker Travis Coons was a perfect 18 for 18 in field goal attempts (including the two he made in last night's contest) as he lined up for the game winner.

The kick was blocked.

Ravens special teamer Will Hill grabbed the deflection and scampered 64 yards down the near sidelines for the game-winning touchdown. The immediate reaction on social media afterwards was pretty much summed up as "Browns gonna Brown" or "That is the most Browns finish ever."

About 5-1/2 years ago, the NFL Network's Top 10 series devoted a show to most snakebit NFL franchises. While my Vikings can make a solid case for the top spot, they were number two behind.......the Cleveland Browns.

After last evening, don't look for the Browns to move off the top spot anytime soon.
