It’s a happy day for sports fans in Cleveland. With a 24-22 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, the Browns punched their ticket to the NFL playoffs for the first time since 2002.
Long-suffering fans now have at least a week to savor the moment.
“We finally made it back to the playoffs,” said Vanessa Clever, a lifelong Browns fan who’s thrilled after Sunday’s victory. “That’s No. 1 for us. We just want to go all the way.”
