The NFL is one of the hardest divisions to win in and it is no surprise that the Cleveland Browns have not won a Super Bowl in over 50 years. However, with the talent on their roster, they are now a real shot at winning a Super Bowl. The AFC North rivals Pittsburgh Steelers have won two Super Bowls in recent years and the Browns could be next. If they can find a way to win a road playoff game, they will have a real shot at making it to Glendale, AZ for the big game.
The Cleveland Browns have improved greatly this season and currently lead their division rival Pittsburgh Steelers. But, after losing four straight games, their Super Bowl chances are looking slim. In order to make it to the Super Bowl, the Browns must win their first-round matchup against a tough opponent like the Kansas City Chiefs or New England Patriots.
Caesars Sportsbook has moved the Browns’ odds to make the playoffs from +1000 to +400 after they acquired star QB Deshaun Watson. NFL Week 9 saw Cleveland’s futures odds to win Super Bowl LVII move up as well, however, their chances depend on the final suspension decision of Myles Garrett. With a favorable schedule for the remainder of the regular season and the Bengals looming in Week 17, the Browns are poised to make a playoff run. If they can manage that, with Deshaun leading them, anything is possible.
The Cleveland Browns have been striving to make a Super Bowl worthy team for the last few years, and they have been gaining momentum in the NFL. With former Texans QB Deshaun Watson now on board, they could be in with a chance of achieving their biggest feat yet—winning the Lombardi Trophy. However, this season has been a disappointment for the Browns, and they got yet another dose of bad news when Deshaun was suspended for four games due to his off-field issues in Houston. This obviously has hurt their chances of making it far in the playoffs this year, but with him still suiting up soon, there is still hope that they can get back on track. The Cardinals may be ahead of them currently, but if the Browns can get themselves together under Deshaun's leadership, who knows what could happen? Imagine if we look into the foreseeable future and see that time as when Cleveland finally got their team together to win a championship? That would be something special indeed.
The Cleveland Browns have not made an AFC Championship Game since the Jets won Super Bowl III, which is the longest active postseason drought in the NFL. The Browns have not made a Super Bowl appearance since 1964 and are one of eight teams to never win a sole Super Bowl in the era. Despite this, they have made the playoffs several times over the past few years, most recently for the 2018 season. However, they have come up short each time and were unable to make it past the Divisional Round. They were defeated by both the Steelers and Saints in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
The Cleveland Browns Football team have had three more playoff appearances since their inception in 1946. It was Paul Brown who helped the Browns reach new heights in professional football, with quarterback Otto Graham leading the way. The Browns appeared in four consecutive championship games from 1946-1949, and won their first league championship under their first head coach Blanton Collier in 1964. They would go on to win 10 divisional titles and make two more appearances in the league championship game under innovative coaching of Bud Carson and Bill Belichick.
The Cleveland Browns were one of the first teams to make a playoff run, and have since made 29 playoff appearances in their franchise history. The team has an impressive 11 conference championships and 21 divisional titles, but have yet to bring home a Super Bowl title. In recent years, the Browns have been one of the most talented teams in the league with top 5 quarterbacks leading their charge. Despite having some of the most talent in football, they’ve been unable to make the playoffs on a consistent basis. With oddsmakers currently giving them little chance against teams like Kansas City Chiefs, can they pull off an upset this time?
The Cleveland Browns have never won a Super Bowl, but they have won championships in the All-America Football Conference and the National Football League . They are given +4500 NFL futures odds to win the 2021 Super Bowl at Tipico Sportsbook. Despite not having a great history in the Super Bowl, our NFL picks for the Browns this season suggest that they could surprise us. With an impressive lineup of players and coaching staff, it is not out of the question for them to make a run at glory.
The Cleveland Browns have had to contend with the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens in the division for years, but they have been able to put up a fight in most NFL games. Compared to Deshaun Watson's suspension, Atlanta Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley got only one year suspension for his actions. Strictly from a football sense, it looks like the length of the suspension is more favorable for Cleveland. Looking at their division odds and with the addition of receiver Calvin Ridley, they certainly have a chance of making noise this season.
