The Browns have a better record than the Pats?

September is winding down so it’s time for October playoff baseball, week 3 of NFL football, and the impending start of the hockey season.

But can you believe it? Thanks to their game 1 tie with the Steelers and their incredible first win in 635 days over the New York Jets this past Thursday night the Cleveland Browns currently have a better record than the Patriots and the Steelers!! I’ll enjoy this while it lasts (“we’re #1-1-1!”).

The Bucs are undefeated as well and take on Pittsburgh tonight on Monday Night Football. Let’s hope for some more Fitzmagic!

Meanwhile, over in baseball-land my Indians clinched the AL Central (for the third time in a row) two weeks ago. The Tampa Bay Rays, who have the same record as the Tribe, however, are going to miss out on a wild card spot thanks to their position in the tougher AL East (the Red Sox are on fire this year).

Still, not a bad showing this season for Tampa Bay.

Go October sports teams! 😀

  1. October baseball for me lasted less than a week as the Indians have been swept out of the ALDS by the Houston Astros. 🙁 And thanks to major league baseball scheduling all the games in the afternoon (to put the Boston/New York series in prime time) I didn’t get to watch any of them. Which I guess, in hindsight now, was a blessing in disguise. Oh well … looking forward to Spring Training 2019!
