Cleveland Browns fans are feeling good the morning after. 

"Monday morning, look around and see the electricity in the city. It's a good feeling," said one fan. 

Fans are still talking about Sunday's win against the Saints. 

"I'm like yeah, we win! Thank you, they needed that!" one fan said, proudly. 

That win was the first home opening victory for the Browns in a decade. 

"Ten years we've woken up on a Monday and been able to enjoy it, a victory, yes!" exclaimed another.

The team and the town have been accustomed to losing for so long that winning feels kind of strange. 

"It feels great, it is different, it is a nice wonderful change," lamented one fan. 

But now, many have expectations for the Browns in the post season. 

"I am hoping for the playoffs, I want to see us go deep," one fan stressed. 

It is amazing how grid iron victory can translate into civic pride. 

"It's a good feeling to be in Cleveland. I am proud to live here," said one resident.
