The Cleveland Browns concluded the 2017 season with a cumulative 1–31 record over the previous two seasons, which set an NFL record for the lowest winning percentage over two seasons.
The Browns would lose 50 of 55 games between Week 11 and the end of the season, after opening the season with a 6–3 record. That was their worst performance and record for that particular season.
The Cleveland Browns are a Cleveland-based professional American football club. They compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member team of the American Football Conference (AFC) North division and are called after initial coach and co-founder Paul Brown.
The Browns home games at FirstEnergy Stadium in Berea, Ohio, which opened in 1999 and houses the team’s administrative headquarters and training facilities. Brown, orange, and white are the Browns’ official colors. They are the only NFL team without a logo on their helmets, out of the 32 teams that make up the league.
Brown and industrialist Arthur B. McBride formed the team in 1945 as a pioneer participant of the All-America Football Conference (AAFC). The Browns overshadowed the AAFC, going 47–4–3 and capturing the league championship in each of the four seasons.
The Browns, along with the San Francisco 49ers and the original Baltimore Colts, joined the NFL after the AAFC disbanded after the 1949 season.
