We're throwing it back to 1950 Cleveland Browns' Christmas Eve miracle when they won their first of four NFL Championships and fifth of eight league championships in what was then referred to as “the greatest gridiron spectacle in Cleveland history.”
Taking on the Los Angeles Rams, a team once beloved by Cleveland before they departed the city, the Browns were down 27-28 with less than 30 seconds left in the championship game. Kicker Lou Groza entered the game, and as the clock counted down to the 20-second mark, 29,751 of the finest Clevelanders witnessed Groza nail a 16-yard field goal, finishing off 10 unanswered points for Cleveland, and, oh yeah, the win. Shortly thereafter the stands emptied onto the field, and Groza, as well as the rest of the Browns, were enveloped in the overflowing love only Believelanders can understand. Pay homage.
