There’s a LOT of hype surrounding the Browns this year, which means it’ll be MORE devastating for Cleveland fans when they inevitably collapse.
But maybe . . . MAYBE . . . they’ll make the playoffs for the first time in 17 years, seeking their first playoff win in 25 YEARS.
SportsLine used their Projection Model to simulate the entire 2019 NFL season 10,000 TIMES to predict the win totals and playoff chances for all 32 teams.
In those simulations, Cleveland averaged 9.4 wins, with a 57.9% chance at the postseason. They’re tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for the sixth best win total in the entire league.
Overall, the New England Patriots have the highest estimated win total with 11.1, and that comes with a very high 91.6% shot at the playoffs, which isn’t surprising.
The other teams projected to be better than the Browns are: The Kansas City Chiefs, the New Orleans Saints, the L.A. Chargers, and the L.A. Rams.
