Former Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas went on NFL Total Access and predicted the team’s record this season and has them in the postseason at 10-6 while also dominating the AFC North
Joe Thomas made some news Wednesday as it was announced he would be joining the NFL Network crew for pregame and postgame work on Thursday Night Football. The former Cleveland Browns left tackle is a natural on air and brings great knowledge about the game as well as plenty of personality to the table.
Before that announcement was made, he was on NFL Total Access giving us a glimpse of what’s to come on Thursday Night as he was breaking down the 2019 season. In a clip shared on Twitter, Thomas took a look at his former team’s schedule this season and predicted their game-by-game outcome.
When done, not only did Thomas have the Browns in the playoffs, but he had them at 10-6 while dominating the AFC North with a mark of 5-1.
At first, it doesn’t seem as though they would get 10 wins as Thomas had them at 4-5 with wins against the Tennessee Titans, New York Jets, Baltimore Ravens, and Denver Broncos early on. However, he had them losing to the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots as well as the Buffalo Bills — which he called a surprise loss.
Then on Thursday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Thomas has them catching fire with a win over their hated rivals. Thomas points out he will be at that game and will be their good luck charm.
It also kicks off a 6-1 finish which has a four-game winning streak to end the season. He did say they will lose the second game against Pittsburgh, but that still makes them 5-1 while sweeping Baltimore and the Cincinnati Bengals.
Should Thomas’ prediction come true, it would be the Browns first winning season since the left tackle was a rookie in 2007. It would also end the longest playoff drought in the NFL which dates back to 2002.
