When most people talk about the AFC North, they seem to only mention the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and recently, the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cleveland Browns seem to be the forgotten ugly sister in the division, but many believe they have made huge strides towards returning to competitiveness.

SB Nation's Cleveland Browns blog, Dawgs By Nature, still has a rabid fan base regardless of the lack of success and continued frustrations the franchise has endured.
