CLEVELAND, Ohio- The Cleveland Browns have won their first regular season game since December 2016, and if that seems like a long time ago, it was. Barack Obama was still president. After the win, Browns fans took to the streets to celebrate the first win for the franchise in nearly two years.
Browns' defensive end Myles Garrett got the party started inside FirstEnergy Stadium as he high-fived fans in post-game celebration.
And, Quarterback Baker Mayfield and Head Coach Hue Jackson shared a celebratory post-game hug.
Meanwhile, Cavaliers player J.R. Smith was shirtless in the stands celebrating with fellow Cleveland fans.
Bud Light unlocked the victory fridges and told all of Cleveland to "go celebrate with a Bud Light. You've earned it."
The Cleveland Police Department even offered their praise to the Browns, while also reminding Cleveland to "stay calm" and "drive sober. Or uber. Or RTA/public transit home to celebrate."
Even former Cavaliers player LeBron James congratulated the Browns Thursday evening.
Professional wrestler Johnny Gargano also congratulated the city this evening saying,
"After everything us Browns fans have been through these past few seasons.. Cleveland definitely deserved tonight. I've said since day one that Baker Mayfield is the type of guy we've needed to change our luck around. He's just a special dude. He showed the world that tonight!"
Some fans even argue that the Browns have their own rally animal and that the possum one fan caught in the stands Thursday night needs to be at every game from now on.
Fans were double-taking the win since the Browns hadn't seen a regular season victory since December 2016.
Whether you were in the press box, at the stadium or in the bar, every true Cleveland fan was reminded Thursday night that an ice cold beer is served best with a win.
Oh, and in case you didn't know, Bud Light has declared Baker Mayfield the "breaker of chains."
With their win, the Cleveland Browns are currently in 2nd place in the AFC North.
