The last time the Cleveland Browns were a road favorite: October 19, 2014

CLEVELAND - According to most major sportsbooks, the Cleveland Browns enter their Sunday matchup with the Indianapolis Colts favored by anywhere between one and three points.

You'd have to go back nearly three years to find the last time the Browns were a betting favorite for a road game: October 19, 2014, when a 3-2 Cleveland team went to Jacksonville to take on the 0-5 Jaguars.

The Browns would ultimately fall short of making good on their road favorite status, losing to Jacksonville by a score of 24-6. Cleveland went on to win four of their next five games, before losing its final five contests to finish the year 7-9.

Whether or not the Browns will fare better in their next go-round as road favorites, we'll find out on Sunday. Until then, here's a look at what was going on in the world the last time the Browns were expected to win away from Cleveland:
