The Browns clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2002 by barely beating the Steelers' "junior varsity" team, 24-22, on Sunday in Cleveland. The Steelers were without several key starters and Mason Rudolph and company still almost pulled off the upset.
The Browns are in unchartered territories now with making the playoffs and it really showed after their win against the Steelers. The Browns for some absurd reason had playoff T-shirts made and players were wearing them after the game.
Browns' linebacker Mack Wilson and other players were also trolling JuJu Smith-Schuster in the locker room after the game by playing the song "Adderall (Corvette Corvette)" by Popp Hunna. The "Corvette, Corvette" song was what Smith-Schuster played on his TikTok videos when he used to dance on the opposing team's logo pregame. Smith-Schuster stopped doing his pregame ritual after talking with Mike Tomlin following the loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15.
Wilson also mocked Smith-Schuster on Twitter after the game.
The Browns' postgame antics probably won't give Smith-Schuster or the Steelers any more motivation than they already will have to go into their first-round playoff game with Cleveland, but it just shows that the Browns are acting like they haven't been there before, which they haven't in almost two decades.
