635 days, that is almost 2 years. In that span the Cleveland Browns have not won a game. In this years NFL Draft, the Browns picked Baker Mayfield #1 overall. He was seen as the future of the team, but he wasn't named the starter of the Browns, that job was given to former Buffalo Bill Tyrod Taylor.
The Browns, still winless this season have been competitive under Taylor, but still no wins. That changed last night. Mayfield came in after Taylor was injured in the 2nd quarter. Down 14-0, Mayfield lead the charge and gave the Browns, and the city of Cleveland something to cheer for. A rare Browns victory.
The city was buzzing.

Even Bud Light jumped in on the fun. At the beginning of the season they sent pad-locked coolers full of Bud Light with the simple order of 'When the Browns Win, You can Unlock" and last night, they were indeed unlocked.
