Relive the Browns' memorable 2002 win vs. Atlanta on special Saturday broadcast


One of the best moments in "new" Browns history will be back on TV this Saturday.

News 5, the Browns' official preseason TV partner, will broadcast the team's 2002 playoff-clinching win over the Falcons. It will start at noon and air in its entirety. will also have the full replay of the game available.

The memorable, 24-16 victory ultimately put the Browns in the playoffs, but they weren't able to celebrate when the game concluded. It was only after the Jets beat Green Bay later in the day when Cleveland officially had its first trip to the postseason of the new era.

William Green rushed for a whopping 178 yards, 64 of which came on a game-sealing run with 3:53 to play that evoked Jim Donovan's famous "Run William Run!" call from the radio booth. The Browns stuffed the Falcons on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line in the game's final moments to seal their ninth victory of the season.
