Party like it’s 2002: LeBron, Drew Carey and more celebrate Browns’ playoff trip

First Ohio State and now the Cleveland Browns. What a weekend for the state of Ohio. On Friday, the Buckeyes crushed Clemson in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff and will face Alabama in the national championship game. Then on Sunday, the Browns broke the NFL’s longest playoff drought. By beating the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Cleveland earned a wild-card spot, their first NFL postseason berth in 18 years.

The Browns also won their season finale for the first time since 2009.

With the streak snapped, notable Ohioans LeBron James and Drew Carey, along with many others, took to social media to celebrate.

Now that they’re in the playoffs, Cleveland has to end another streak. The Browns haven’t won a playoff game since defeating the Bill Parcells-led New England Patriots in the 1994 wild-card round, when Bill Belichick was Cleveland’s head coach. The Browns will face the Steelers next weekend.
