CLEVELAND — Browns fans flocked to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Sunday night to welcome home the team following a tough loss in Kansas City.

“It's been a rough year for everybody with the pandemic and everything and the Browns, they gave new meaning to everything. They gave us a lot to look forward to this year,” Kristy Austin said. “It's been so many years since we've gotten this far that it's just, even with the tough loss, I'm just proud of them beyond belief.”

Fans were not allowed near the tarmac, however, as Cleveland police blocked the entry to the airport citing NFL COVID-19 protocols.

That didn’t keep fans from showing up.

“With COVID, with all the cases and stuff, everyone was down, but the Browns win all these games and really cheered people up around the city,” Jack Pincoe said.

Children were happy to be off school Monday so they could forego their bedtimes and thank their favorite players.

“We finally got the quarterback of the future. We got the right coach too,” Chase Austin said. “We still care for them. This isn't just going to be their worst game ever. We still support them.”
