Five Cleveland Browns who saw their stocks rise following a nail-biter of a win against the Carolina Panthers at FirstEnergy Stadium Sunday.

The Cleveland Browns won for the third time in four games and ken the dream of finishing over .500 for the first time since 2007 alive.

If you need more reason to keep watching, consider the Browns are still “in the hunt” on the television network broadcasts when the playoff scenarios are broken down.

Cleveland’s chances to make it remain longer than a long shot, but why not enjoy the fun. This team has more wins this season than it did the last three years (2014-2017).

When you win in the NFL, you need several stellar performances, which the Browns received on a sunny, but cold day at First Energy Stadium.

In the past, the Browns might’ve lost a game like this.

Cam Newton had two chances to give his team the lead. He led the Panthers on a 70-plus yard drive late in the fourth quarter and got all the way to the Cleveland 3 yard line, but the driver stalled when the former MVP couldn’t connect on third and fourth down attempts.

On the Panthers final offensive play of the day, Cleveland’s defense, who was awful in the first half, sealed the win with an interception of Damarious Randall.

Perhaps things finally are starting to change for those orange helmets.

From here, the Browns play at Denver before returning home for the Cleveland front of the Battle of the Ohio.

Here’s five Browns who stock was lifted with the victory over the Panthers.
