This is history in the making, and Browns fans are poised to play a big role in it.
To continue our celebration of the franchise's 75th anniversary, we're launching "Browns Countdown: Top 75 Moments" presented by Bridgestone. Over the next month, through videos, articles and more, we'll be highlighting the top 75 moments in Browns history. Our video tributes, which will be available at ClevelandBrowns.com, the Browns' mobile app and the Browns' official YouTube Channel, will dive deep into the top 20 while our articles will put the spotlight on a number of different moments that are sprinkled throughout the top 75.
But this list, compiled by an esteemed panel of Browns experts, is by no means final. That's where you, the fans, come in to play a vital role.
The top 10 moments have been selected, but we're leaving their order up to you. Visit our official “Browns Countdown” website, rank the top 10 the way you think it should be, and you'll be automatically entered for a chance to win tickets to a 2021 regular season Browns game. The official, fan-ranked order will be revealed on "Browns Countdown: Top 10 Moments" presented by Bridgestone, which is set to air Tuesday, June 29, at 8 p.m. on News 5.
Earlier this year, the Browns commissioned a panel of historians, alumni and journalists to rank the top 75 moments in Browns history. The group met multiple times to discuss the moments and each member submitted their own final rankings, which were averaged against each other to create the ultimate list.
