The Cleveland Browns have been to hell and back this season.
Kevin Stefanski’s team has managed to overcome adversity over and over.
Regardless of the opposition or how bad things get for them health-wise, they continue to find ways to get wins out of the mud and end on top in unfavorable situations.
That’s why it’s not much of a surprise to see that PFF ranked them as the most dangerous teams on the fringes of the playoff race, ahead of the likes of the Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and even Denver Broncos.

The Browns currently control their own fate, and while winning the AFC North Division might be out of the question at this point, there’s no reason to believe they cannot hold on and make the postseason as a Wild Card team.
The team still has to play the Chicago Bears, Houston Texans, New York Jets, and Cincinnati Bengals, so it’s not like it’s going to be easy, but they have the defensive personnel to pull things off.
On top of that, Joe Flacco has proven that he’s still got plenty left in the tank, and while he’s not the dual-threat gunslinger Deshaun Watson is, he’s given the team some steady play at the most crucial position and at the most crucial time in the season.
