The Browns were indeed the Browns, and they showed the Pittsburgh Steelers they can be a force to be reckoned with it on Sunday night.
JuJu Smith-Schuster provided all the bulletin board material for the Browns with his trash talk before their Wild Card matchup.
“I think they’re still the same Browns teams I play every year,” the Steelers wideout told reporters leading up to the game. “I think they’re nameless gray faces. They have a couple good players on their team, but at the end of the day, I don’t know. The Browns is the Browns.”
The Cleveland Browns were happy to remind him of it after their 48-37 win.
Not only that, Baker Mayfield’s wife, Emily, took to her Instagram story and made sure to call out the Steelers WR as well.
This season marked Cleveland’s first postseason appearance since 2002 and their first win since 1995. The team had lost their previous 17 games to the Steelers at Heinz Field dating back to 2003.
