Browns Have Sole Possession Of First Place For The First Time Since 1995

In a jovial Browns news update, Mike Pettine's first year as Cleveland Browns head coach has already brought a little bit of history to the franchise.

Per Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland, the Cleveland Browns have sole possession of first place in the AFC North for the first time in over nineteen years:

The Pittsburgh Steelers' 20-13 loss to the woeful New York Jets ensures that the Browns will go into this week's preparations with the AFC North firmly in their grasp. Seeing the rival Steelers and Baltimore Ravens struggle to maintain consistency this year provides a very valuable message to a young Browns squad:
