The Cleveland Browns are 0-9 for the first time since 1975. This means they're bad, even by Browns standards.
One bright spot, however, has been the play of wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, whom the team cut last season before resigning this year. Pryor has 48 receptions on 91 targets for 643 yards and four touchdowns. Oh, and he has 21 rushing yards and a touchdown to go with 41 passing yards.
That's Pro Bowl pace.
But Pryor could be saving his best act for Thursday night's clash in Baltimore against the AFC rival Ravens. Pryor says the Browns aren't out of the playoffs just yet.
“We just have to keep fighting. At the end of the day, I still look at it like we have a chance to make the playoffs. It’s gonna start this week. I mean if we lose [in Baltimore, the chances] probably dwindles down. But you never know.
“If we can some way…if something just clicks with us and we can win seven in a row, you never know what can happen. That’s the exciting part and maybe something we can aim for.”
Don't look now, folks, but the Brownies march to the Super Bowl begins in 30 minutes on the NFL Network. If it happens, we can thank the majesty of Pryor's newest haircut:

UPDATE (11:23 p.m.): The Browns lost, 28-7. This probably eliminates them from the playoffs.
