4 Cleveland Browns whose stock are down vs the Indianapolis Colts.

The Cleveland Browns staved off a rally to hold on for a 32-23 victory against the Indianapolis Colts.

The victory could go down as a huge one for the Browns, especially if Cleveland is trying to stave off Indy in December’s playoff seeding.

Indy marked the first true test for the Browns since Week 1, when Cleveland was whooped by the Ravens. At 3-1, the Colts are the only other team on the Browns schedule at this point that had multiple victories.

In victory, the Browns moved to 4-1 for the first time since 1994. The four-game winning streak is longest since 2009, when Eric Mangini and the Browns transformed James Harrison into Jim Brown during the final quarter of the season.

I know it’s been written before, but some of the stats that pop up around Browns’ victories are amazing, yet cringeworthy.

Teams go 4-1 all of the time, yet somehow, it’s taken the Browns 25 seasons to do it again. And winning four in a row? Good teams do it all the time.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of stink to knock off from the past 20 years, and the odor only gets removed the more the Browns win, so we’ll take it.

There’s plenty of good to go around in victory as these five Browns saw their stocks rise. It wasn’t all roses, though. Here’s five Browns whose stocks dropped as Cleveland staved off Indy’s rally.
