What would a Browns Super Bowl win mean to Cleveland sports fans?

Driving the news: Cleveland has clinched the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs, and quarterback Joe Flacco has fans feeling the magic.

Why it matters: The Browns have never won a Super Bowl. Cleveland is one of two franchises (along with the Detroit Lions) who have never even appeared in one.

  • The Browns did win four NFL championships between 1950 and 1964, but that was before the NFL and AFL merged to give us the modern-day NFL.

The intrigue: We know a Super Bowl would mean a lot, but where would it rank in the pantheon of Cleveland sports?

  • Would the Browns' first Super Bowl win be more meaningful than the Guardians' first World Series crown since 1948?
  • Where would LeBron James and the Cavs' 2016 NBA championship rank?
