Blowout win?... Had to dig into the stat charts to really find even just a win... but if we break it down.
2018 - This season has seen extremely close game after nail biting finish routinely. We need to go baaaack-
2017 - This season goes down in history as one of the worst ever seen- The Browns were close a few times, but the football gods would never allow Cleveland to win even a single game so as to ensure that the Chosen One would be chosen at one... thus- no blowout wins here, but they did get notably blown out a handful of times.
2016 - Cleveland tallied only a single strike in the win column this season, beating the Chargers by a late field goal attempt on a blustery Christmas Eve game at First Energy... the rest of the season handed them another handful of blowout losses.
2015 - One might this season as holding the last Cleveland Blowout Win, however- beating the 49er's by 2 touchdowns when it's only a week removed from a 37-3 drumming by the Bengals, one might chalk that up to the death throws of a defeated season. Money Manziel couldn't buy a win.
2014 - All the way back in ol' 14 we find a glimmering of the last ingredient needed to fulfill our search. Cleveland's Terrance West and Brian Hoyer swung the cat around by it's tail with a 24-3 Victory over the Bengals, it's a 21 POINT victory, and I distinctly remember it feeling incredible and so satisfying- certainly felt like a blowout win. However, the cat did get it's revenge, pelting Cleveland on the top of the head with a golden goose egg, thanks Billy.
Of most notable mention- Cleveland also thrashed Pittsburgh Oct. 12th. 31-10 at First energy almost 4 years to the day. This one felt even better than the more recent Bengals blowout. I can't remember the last time Steelers Fans cleared out of our stadium before our own. It felt like cold revenge for the playoff parties Pittsburgh likes to have at our house.
2013 - Nothing to see here- just a lot of "ugh"...
2012 - Our biggest most recent blowout lead is found here. Brandon Weedone and Josh Gordon torched the Kansas City Chiefs 30-7, for a 23 point victory! Our biggest blowout also capped another mile marker in team history by capping a 3 GAME WIN STREAK! … but there must be more, right? Right?
2011 - Colt McCoy managed just 4 wins this year. 27-19 win against the Colts on the legs and shoulders of Mr. Madden himself, Peyton Hillis- the white rhino baby! Sadly, no blowouts though.
2010 - Peyton Hillis leads us again on two back to back victories to cliff note this season. New Orleans and New England were engulfed by the white tsunami- 30-17 and 30-14! Close again to blowouts but not quite the fix we're looking for, still not satisfied enough? Let's keep digging...
2009 - Man, it's crazy back here! Charley Fried and Josh Cribbs mark the boards up here late in the season, Cleveland rattles off a 4 Game Win Streak to brighten a dark season.
2008 - Pushing the bounds of the statute of limitations, we see that there are some places best left in the past, nothing good lives here, as evidence by three blowout losses in a row to finish the year, including two goose egg knots on the top of Brownie's furry head.
2007 - I see a lot of wins, 10 of them to be exact. Derek Anderson and company managed 51 points in a wild shootout with the rival Bengals, and 41 points to the Dolphins' 31... Blowouts, nah. We've sucked for a long time but did we actually ever blow anybody?
2006 - Nope, gotta keep going... it's so cooold…
2005 - Pittsburgh murdered us in the comfort of our own home... in plain sight of 73,136 people, 41-0... oh, the humanity!
………… but wait, what's this?!- Waaaay back in 2005, The Cleveland Browns skunked the Miami Dolphins 22 to motherShmucking ZERO! Trent Dilfer, Reuben Droughns and Braylon Edwards combined to open Cleveland's last can of whoopass!
Chargers, it sucks to be you.... We're due.
