The Cleveland Browns and New York Giants have the honor of playing a Monday Night Football game on the day of a rare total eclipse. Even though the eclipse is around the 2:30 PM ET mark and the city of Cleveland is not in the path of totality, the team still had fun with the spectacle:

Someone on Twitter also had the gut-punch gag, asking, "What will burn more eyes today -- the Browns on MNF or the eclipse?" Fortunately, if last week was any indication, this is a much better Browns team to have on the eyes.

Adding to the fun is Browns LT Joe Thomas, who asked a meteorologist if he could wear sunglasses while staring at the eclipse.

The Browns were quick to take caution:

Even if Thomas has the night off against the Giants, we most certainly do need his eyes. Be careful to anyone partaking in the eclipse today — it might not seem like staring at a darker phenomenon with the sun concealed could be harmful, but it is.
