The Cleveland Browns defeated the Washington Commanders on Sunday and then the social media team handed them another loss on Monday
One win is great, but two are better.
The Cleveland Browns got a win on Sunday as they rode a hot second half to a 24-10 victory over the Washington Commanders. During that game, Washington introduced their new mascot — a pigman wearing commander gear and a helmet. They even gave him the name Major Tuddy, which feels like a name submitted in jest but someone mistakenly took it seriously.
Of course, this was met with jokes all over the internet — which is pretty much the norm when Washington does anything. The mascot release also led to another win for the Cleveland Browns social media team, which has been on fire this season.
The Seinfeld reference was brilliant as those in charge of the social media team for Cleveland found the perfect way to poke fun at the team they just eliminated from playoff contention. They were even thanked by Aaron Rodgers, since his Packers now have a very good shot of getting in.
And to continue to show they know how to do the internet, the Twitter account put together a montage of Rodgers saying “go Browns,” then thanking them after the win. They ended that one with Michelle from Full House responding to the thanks with her signature “you got it, dude.”
Cleveland now hits the road for one final game as they face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 18. They have nothing to play for but can once again end playoff hopes by knocking off the Steelers.
It would also drop their rivals to 8-9 on the season, which would give Mike Tomlin his first losing campaign as head coach. Come to think of it, they do have something to play for next Sunday.
