Cleveland Browns: 10 greatest quarterbacks in team history

8 of 11

7. Vinny Testaverde

Entering the 2015 season, Vinny Testaverde held the distinction of being the last NFL quarterback to win a playoff game for the Cleveland Browns.

That came during the 1994 campaign, when Vinny led the Browns past the Bill Parcells coached New England Patriots.

Testaverde only started 37 games in his Browns career, which spanned from 1993-1995, but in that time, he tossed 47 touchdown passes, which still ranks eighth all-time. Vinny went on to play for several teams throughout his 21-year NFL career, as he amassed 46,233 career passing yards, which is ninth all-time in the NFL. According to the Pro Football Reference website, 7,255 of those yards came while the University of Miami product was wearing an orange helmet.

During his lone playoff win with the Browns, which was played Jan. 1, 1995, Testaverde played well, posting a 106.0 passer rating while throwing one touchdown and zero picks.

Vinny had some great years with the Browns, but he’ll be most remembered as the guy who took Bernie’s Kosar job, after then coach Bill Belichik cut the fan-favorite Kosar during the middle of the 1993 season.

None of that was Vinny’s doing and Testaverde stayed with the organization after the team moved to Baltimore following the 1995 season. Testaverde made his first Pro Bowl in 1996 as a member of the Baltimore Ravens.
