As the Cleveland Browns celebrate their first playoff berth in over 20 years, they’re not just celebrating their first win since 2004.
They’re also celebrating the birth of a meme that has been around for more than two decades.
The Browns have been the most popular meme in the league since they won their first Super Bowl in 1999.
The Cleveland Browns have the most fan favorites in the history of the NFL.
The Cleveland Browns are the most recognized NFL franchise, with more than 8.3 million fans who follow the team on social media.
The Browns are also one of the best teams in the NFC South, having a winning record and winning their division three times in the last five seasons.
This year, however, the meme was born.
In 2016, the Browns had the second-most fan favorites behind the New England Patriots.
Now, they have the third-most.
The memes that started this season are trending.
The NFL Network and Pro Football Talk are reporting that, in 2017, the NFL has seen more than 9 million memes posted on social platforms during the regular season.
This trend is not new.
Back in 2017 when the Browns were celebrating their fourth Super Bowl appearance in five years, the hashtag #BoysGoBears was trending on Twitter.
In the past few weeks, the trending topic has shifted to #BillsGoBills, #BengalsGoBengal, #PatriotsGoBucs, #CowboysGoBroncos, and #BucaneersGoBucks.
There are a number of reasons why the meme is growing in popularity, but one of them is the Cleveland-centric nature of the Browns fan base.
The #BboysGoBroncos were the most watched sports network on television in 2017.
The #BENGALSGoBuckets were the second most watched in 2017 after ESPN.
The meme was also a mainstay of the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game between Alabama and Clemson.
The fact that it’s still being used in 2017 and that it has the highest viral reach among memes suggests that the meme has survived a few rounds of retweets, but it’s also likely that it will continue to grow as more people follow it.
