The Steelers take on the Cleveland Browns in the last game of the season on Sunday in what is seemingly becoming an annual tradition. Since the NFL moved to having all divisional matchups in Week 17, the Steelers and Browns have faced off 6 times in the last 7 years. This “annual tradition” comes nearly exactly four months after another annual NFL tradition – people overestimating how good Cleveland will be. This year, with the Brown and Orange on the cusp of a winless season, makes those predictions extra hilarious.
I really think this Browns team can win 7-8 games THIS year!

The #Browns played their hardest opponent today and lost by 3. This team is gonna win 6-8 games this year. Kizer can only go up from here.

I said before but here it goes. The Cleveland Browns win 8 games this year.

Don't sleep on the Browns this year they're going to win 8+ games
— Austin Bouchillon (@abouch10) September 10, 2017
Look at the #Browns schedule again and tell me we can't win 8 games
— DawgPoundHustle (@DawgPoundHustle) September 5, 2017
You can’t win 8 games.
the browns have fixed every issue of need & are playing lights out. accept that they will win 8 games & make a strong playoff run next year.

Browns are going to win at least 8 games this year and people are going to freak out.

Starting to think the Browns might win 8 games

Some others had more tempered expectations, but were still waaaay off.
With the new NFL season about to kick off it's time for some bold predictions.
1) The Browns win at least 6 games.
— Sam Farley (@FarleyWrites) September 7, 2017
3. The Browns will win @ least 7 games.
— ?Sad Man? Urameshi (@JeffHouston_) September 7, 2017
Sucks the Browns still don't have a qb. With a decent qb, I think they could win 7-8 games, instead they win 4-6.
— BIG 10 Champs (@johnrobbins29) August 31, 2017
if browns win more then 4 games this year thats a W season to me
— Benzo (@BenzoBoomin) September 6, 2017
?? just because the browns go undefeated in the preseason dont mean they bout to win more than 4 games this year ???
— FATBOYGANG_jt (@jatavious21) September 3, 2017
Garrett is the type of guy that can help a team win 4-6 games… Without him, #browns are a 2-4 win team…
— WORD ON THE STREET (@PapaKelch) September 6, 2017
I'm really hoping the Browns can win a couple of games this season.
— Sincere™ (@SAMO_shaun) September 8, 2017
Others were just insane.
Browns win 10 games this year. Yeah that's right 10. #Believe
— Nelson Santiago (@Nelsonsantiago0) September 7, 2017
Listening to @CLETalkingHeads and a caller just said he expects the Browns to win 10-12 games… Are we really this delusional?

Browns Could Win Seven Games; I Love What They're Doing https://t.co/4Ka31TqHFc

People were really into this Browns-Jets thing.
The Browns will win more games than the Jets this year
— Papa Swezio (@sweedeypie) September 8, 2017
The Browns are going to win more games than the Jets? Stat of the day, stat of the day…. https://t.co/pym2r3d48M

Cleveland may in fact get a parade AND Joe Haden might get a ring.
There will be a ring ceremony for the undefeated preseason and they will give Haden one also!
— DBlhc13 (@djb6577) September 7, 2017
Hey, here’s a suggestion:
If the @Browns cant win more than 4 games this year they should relocate to alaska. Get a fresh start and some new team colors…. ??
— Dennis skirvin (@DennisSkirvin) September 4, 2017
I….I don’t even know where to start with this one.
One thing I hope everyone acknowledges: The fact that the Browns are 1-27 over their last 28 games does not mean that The Process didn't/doesn't work.
— Ian Kenyon (@IanKenyonNFL) December 7, 2017
And finally, these folks were spot on!
i hope the browns dont win any games this season since it didnt happen last season
— number one scott kazmir fan (@sofiejohnstone) September 1, 2017
YOU KNOW WHO ELSE FINISHED THE PRESEASON 4-0? The 0-16 Lions! The Browns will be lucky to win 6 games!
— Angry Pack Fan (@TheBrewCrewFeed) September 1, 2017
The Cleveland Browns finished the preseason 4-0. Are those the only games they'll win this year?
— Erick (@ErickGWalter) September 1, 2017
@Land_On_Demand Browns enter season with a high school QB, Kizer wont win a single game. With a decent vet QB, they could win 10 games
