The Cleveland Browns fought their way to an 8-point win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14, improving to a 6-7 record on the season.

Sunday's win kept the Browns' playoff hopes alive, but Cleveland's odds to make to make this year's postseason remain a long shot, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Odds of Browns Making Playoffs

At one game below .500 and two games back from the 8-5 Pittsburgh Steelers for the second AFC Wild Card spot, FanDuel Sportsbook currently gives the Browns +900 odds of making into the AFC playoff picture

According to Football Outsiders, Cleveland has just a 5.4 percent chance to earn the last Wild Card spot in the AFC, which means the Browns must win out to sneak into the postseason this year.

With a Week 16 game against the 11-2 Baltimore Ravens on the horizon, winning out would be a tall task. However, if the Browns are already 2-point favorites over the Arizona Cardinals their Week 15 matchup, and if they can steal a win against the Ravens in Week 16, Cleveland is likely to be favored in its final game against the Bengals in Week 17.

Aside from winning out, the Browns would also need both the Tennessee Titans to lose out and the Steelers to lose at least two of their last three games.

The Browns need a lot of help to keep their postseason dream alive, but first and foremost, they need to focus on winning their own final three games of the 2019 season.
