Only one NFL team in history has made it through an entire 16-game regular season without a win, a fate narrowly avoided Saturday by the Cleveland Browns with a last-minute win over the San Diego Chargers. That win was extra sweet for Cleveland weatherman Scott Sabol, who was holding out for a W before scheduling his next shave. "Wonderful Christmas gift from the @Browns Monday on the @fox8news AM show the 109 day Beard goes!" the Fox8 meteorologist tweeted. The Browns' losing streak lasted 377 days, extending back into last season, notes Fox8; only the 2008 Detroit Lions went an entire 16-game season without a win. Of Sabol, USA Today muses: "Must have been a long and itchy 109 days." (More Cleveland Browns stories.)
