However, not even the most keen of NFL analysts could have predicted who would be a cornerstone of the team’s success towards the end of the season. Heck, even the man himself seems surprised by his success. Veteran QB Joe Flacco inked a one-year deal with the team on Dec. 13.
Flacco started his first game for the Browns on Dec. 3, and in his five-game stint, he’s led the team to a 4-1 record and helped them clinch the No. 5 spot in the AFC. He’s also cracked the 300-yard plateau in four of his five starts while throwing for at least two touchdowns in all of them. Not bad for a guy who thought his NFL career was over.
The story isn’t all sweet for Browns fans, though. The team lost its franchise quarterback, Deshaun Watson, earlier this season. Watson signed a five-year contract worth $230 million in guaranteed cash ahead of the 2022 NFL season, meaning they’re paying him a hefty check for each week of missed action.
