The Cleveland Browns have a new logo as Brownie the Elf was chosen through a fan vote and will be on the field for their opener in Week 2

The Cleveland Browns asked their fans to help them decide on their new midfield logo, and they got their answer.

After opening up a poll that offered four different designs, the majority of fans wanted to see Brownie the elf in the middle of FirstEnergy Stadium.

Cleveland announced the winner on Tuesday, showing off the logo with the mascot on the turf celebrating his victory.

The new logo will be on display this Sunday as Cleveland will host the New York Jets in Week 2. In that contest, the Browns look to go 2-0 for the first time in since 1993.

Perhaps this can be the year for ending streaks since they did just earn their first Week 1 win since 2004. If that wasn’t enough, it was also their first opening-season win on the road since 1994.

Rookie kicker Cade York knocked in a 58-yard field goal at the end of their opener to give Cleveland a two-point win over the Carolina Panthers.

More history to be made for the Browns in Week 2?

While Cleveland could go 2-0, which will be a huge milestone for them, there could be a record broken as well. Myles Garrett recorded two sacks on Sunday, putting him just 1.5 behind Clay Matthews (62) for the most in franchise history.

For the second week in a row, Garrett will be facing a rookie offensive tackle. That could lead to another big game, and he could find himself as the all-time leader in sacks before the day is over. That’s a scary prospect considering he’s just 26 years of age and has many years to add to that total.
