Browns vs. Saints Trivia Thread

Recommended Posts

I have laid off the trivia for quite some time, but now that the Browns are playing a team that they see only once every 4 years, I thought I would bring out a set on that "rivalry".....or lack thereof.    So, here you go.  See if you can come up with any.   Remember, no Googling.

1. What is the current head to head record of the Browns vs. the Saints?

 

2. What WR that lead the Saints in passing for a season also played for the Browns for a while?

 

3. Which Saints first round draft pick also played for the Browns for a while?

 

4. What Pro Bowl player for the Saints signed a big FA contract with the Browns....but never played a down for them?

 

5. On what date were the Saints founded?

 

6. After Hurricane Katrina, the Saints played their home games in 3 different cities.   Name these cities.

 

7. The Saints won the only Super Bowl they ever appeared in.  Besides them, what are the other 2 teams that have won the only SB they have been in?

 

8. The Saints colors are Black and  Gold.  What other teams in the NFL claim black and gold as their colors?

 

9. The Saints "Fleur de Lis" logo is actually the emblem of which French Royal Family?

 

10. Only 3 people whose primary playing career was with the Saints are members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Name these three.

 

Bonus:  The Browns and the Saints actually played in the same division for ONE season together.   Which year was that....what was the name of that division, and who were all the members of it?

You got these all, but here I will do a wrapup

Browns have a 13-4 edge in the series.

 

2. What WR that lead the Saints in passing for a season also played for the Browns for a while?

Donte Stallworth

 

3. Which Saints first round draft pick also played for the Browns for a while?

Donte Stallworth

 

4. What Pro Bowl player for the Saints signed a big FA contract with the Browns....but never played a down for them?

5. On what date were the Saints founded?

November 1, 1966    All Saints Day

 

6. After Hurricane Katrina, the Saints played their home games in 3 different cities.   Name these cities.

Jets and Buccaneers   (a few other teams have lost their only SB appearance:  Chargers, Cardinals, Titans, 

 

8. The Saints colors are Black and  Gold.  What other teams in the NFL claim black and gold as their colors?

The Steelers,   but everyone knows, including them, that their color is nowhere near "gold".   It is as yellow as the streaks on their backs.

 

9. The Saints "Fleur de Lis" logo is actually the emblem of which French Royal Family?

The Bourbon Family.    The street was named after them, not the liquor...in fact, I suspect that the liquor was named after them.

 

10. Only 3 people whose primary playing career was with the Saints are members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Name these three.

Willie Roaf, Ricky Jackson, Morten Andersen.  They have also had Jim Finks inducted as a contributor.  A few other HOFers have had a cup of coffee with the Saints, notably, Earl Campbell, Jim Taylor, Ken Stabler

Drew Brees will make it someday after he retires.

 

Bonus:  The Browns and the Saints actually played in the same division for ONE season together.   Which year was that....what was the name of that division, and who were all the members of it?

1968  Century Division:   Browns/Steelers/Cardinals/Saints     That configuration lasted only the one year.
