The Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions have struggled throughout the last few decades for a variety of reasons. The two teams who often played in the preseason for possession of “The Barge” trophy, have both started the year 7-3 for the first time in over 50 years:
For the first time since 1969, the Lions and Browns each have each won seven of their first 10 games.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 19, 2023
The last time this happened:
Jets were the defending Super-Bowl champs.
Bill Belichick was a senior at Annapolis High School in MD.
Apollo 11 landed on the moon.
As we all know, all that matters for both teams is continuing to win and ending up in the playoffs where anything can happen.
What were you doing in 1969? If you weren’t born (like me) what do you think your parents or grandparents were doing back then?
