In an early morning tweet from yesterday, Cleveland Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey is predicting his team will be in the playoffs this upcoming season.
Cleveland finished its 2017 campaign 0-16 and 1-15 in 2016. The Browns haven’t posted a winning record since 2007 when they finished 10-6 overall.
The last time the Browns clinched a spot in the postseason was in 2002. They lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card round by a score of 9-8. The two teams will meet in the 2018 season-opener with the Browns hosting the Steelers on Sunday, September 9th at 1 p.m. A win over the Steelers could certainly help Cleveland’s chances of reaching the postseason.
