Browns Are Now the Only NFL Team Without a Winning Season This Decade

The hype surrounding the Cleveland Browns before the season began was enormous. Cleveland's over/under total for wins this year was even once listed at 9.5, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

But after a bad loss to the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday, the Browns fell to 6-8, which means they mathematically can't finish above .500 this season. In fact, Cleveland is now the NFL's only team that didn't post a single winning season this decade.

From the top down, this Cleveland squad never seemed to be on the same page, and were unable to turn their high level of individual talent into team success.

To find the last time Cleveland finished the season with a winning record, you would have to go all the way back to 2007, when the Browns finished the year 10-6. Under head coach Romeo Crennel, that team was led by quarterback Derek Anderson, running back Jamal Lewis and star wideout Braylon Edwards.

Cleveland unfortunately didn't make the playoffs that season though, and hasn't made the postseason since 2002.

It's been a rough 10 years for the Browns, and this underwhelming season certainly didn't help matters. But hey, there's always next decade, right?
