It’s too early for Browns fans to give up hope on the remainder of the season. Here are three reasons why Cleveland is still a playoff contender in 2018.

For the Cleveland Browns, the 2018 season has started off in familiar fashion. After two weeks, the Browns are winless and have lost in only ways the Browns could lose. In Week 1 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland missed a potential game-winning field goal in overtime.

In Week 2, Cleveland missed an extra point that would’ve given them the lead late in the fourth quarter.

Cleveland’s roster is very young but also very talented. Although the Browns are winless, they still only have one loss, since they tied Week 1 with the Steelers. With only one loss on their record, the Browns are still playoff contenders.

The path to making the playoffs starts Thursday night, where Cleveland must secure a win versus the New York Jets. If the Browns are unable to find a way to win the AFC North, they will still be Wild Card contenders the entire season in a relatively weak conference. It’s too early for Browns fans to give up hope on the remainder of this season.
