Happy Wednesday, Cleveland Browns fans!
Here are your Browns Nation news and notes for December 8, 2021.
1. JJ3 Out The Community
It is always a pleasure to watch the Browns players out in the community doing charitable works.
The latest is John Johnson III who gave Maple Heights third graders a day they will never forget.

2. Coach Stefanski Spent Sunday Watching A Different Sport
The bye week is a time to step away, relax, and recharge.
Coach Stefanski took the time on Sunday, when he is normally on the Browns sidelines, to watch his son’s basketball tournament.
This explains why he had to check his phone to find out the Ravens-Steelers final score and was not watching it live.
Remember how Kevin Stefanski told us he wasn’t watching #Ravens–#Steelers live? @ashley_kilbane clues us in: the #Browns head coach was busy at the time being a present and available and engaged dad. 🤎🧡 https://t.co/uQ7NEBZQVj

4. Buffalo’s MNF Game Brought Back Memories Of Snow Bowl 2007
The wind and snow were even worse on December 19, 2007 when the Browns hosted the Buffalo Bills.
Monday’s Patriots-Bills game paled in comparison, but it brought back great memories of Phil Dawson‘s clutch performance.

By the way, this is ranked 70th out of the Top 75 moments in the 75-year history of the Browns.
In Dawson’s postgame interview, he said:
“I would have to say in my nine years here that was by far the most difficult day to kick a football. Had there been no snow at all, it would’ve been in the top five just because of the way the wind was blowing.”
This is just the mojo the Browns need headed into their Week 14 game against the Ravens.
