BEREA, Ohio- There is the ‘Cleveland Shuffle’ and then there is the ‘Cleveland Browns Shuffle.’ Thanks to video posted by Browns defensive lineman Phil Taylor on his Instagram page, the whole world got to see the Browns celebrate the biggest come-from-behind win in franchise history and the biggest come-from-behind win by a road team in NFL history.
The video showed players like offensive lineman Joe Thomas and quarterback Brian Hoyer breaking it down.
“I think for me, everything I’ve gone through the past year, I want to enjoy it,” Hoyer said Monday. “I want to go out and have fun. You never know when it’s going to be taken away from you. To celebrate a victory with my teammates, I don’t care how goofy I look.”
“They have some pretty groovy moves,” said wide receiver Travis Benjamin. “Back in the ‘80s, ‘90s moves.”
The Browns scored 26 unanswered points to beat the Tennessee Titans 29-28 for their second come-from-behind victory of the season. Cleveland was gashed in the first half by the Titans, giving up 28 points. In the second half, Cleveland held Tennessee to 126 total yards and 6 first downs.
“It’s footwork. It’s hand placement. It’s awareness,” said head coach Mike Pettine.
As the Browns prepare for Pittsburgh on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium, fans may see more of K’Waun Williams at the nickel back spot with Joe Haden’s playing status up in the air.
Haden left the Tennessee game briefly with a hip injury. Pettine did not have a medical update on Haden or Phil Taylor who also left Sunday’s game with an injury. The Haden injury could also factor into more playing time for Justin Gilbert who has struggled in the secondary this season and has seen his playing time diminished.
“We’re not giving up on Justin,” Pettine said.
Following Sunday’s win, game balls were presented to running back Ben Tate, quarterback Brian Hoyer, wide receiver Travis Benjamin and the entire offensive line on offense; K’Waun Williams, end Armonty Bryant and tackle Ahtyba Rubin on defense; and Tank Carder on special teams.
