Cleveland Browns punch their ticket to the NFL playoffs
Resurgent Cleveland quarterback Joe Flacco threw for three touchdowns in a 37-20 NFL victory over the New York jets last night that saw the Browns punch their ticket to the playoffs.
The post-season was looking unlikely for the Browns after star quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in November.
Flacco, a former super bowl MVP with the Baltimore ravens who was without a team at the start of the season, is the fourth quarterback to start for the injury-plagued browns this season.
the browns are now 4-1 with the 38-year-old Flacco starting and 11-5 for the season. assured of at least a wild card, they still have a chance to win the AFC North division currently led by Baltimore.
