Distant Replay: The Three Rivers Jinx
Webster's Dictionary defines the verb "to hex" as "to affect if by an evil spell." In the NFL, hex is defined as "that which happened to the Cleveland Browns whenever they played in Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Stadium." From the facility's opening in 1970 through 1985, the Browns made 16 trips to Pittsburgh... and came home losers 16 times. This great "Distant Replay" clip from 1995 details the "Three Rivers Jinx" and features interviews with past coaches and players. A very entertaining watch which was broadcast before the "original" Browns' final trip the Three Rivers on Monday Night Football in 1995, which ironically, would be their 7th straight defeat in a "new" losing streak in Pittsburgh. Enjoy!
