It appears as if the rumors are true, God still hates the Cleveland Browns! After threatening their shot at the postseason by making all of their receivers miss the Week 16 loss to the Jets, the Browns have been hit with COVID again.
On Tuesday the Browns announced that three members of the coaching staff, including head coach Kevin Stefanski, and two players had tested positive. For this weekend's playoff game special teams coordinator Mike Priefer will serve as head coach.

Just when it looked like the Browns had some things going for them. Cleveland ended an 18 year playoff drought just to have COVID hit their coaching staff. That's much more cruel than extending the drought to a 19th year.
