So it goes without saying that the host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" didn't enjoy the Cleveland Browns' 48-37 victory over the Steelers in the AFC wild card round on Sunday as much as Northeast Ohio did.

But as one might expect, the former head writer of "Saturday Night Live" managed to also find some humor in his favorite team's season-ending loss. In his monologue on Monday, Meyers addressed the Browns' upset victory and poked some fun at the ways in which Cleveland might be enjoying it.

"We've just had so much go right for us over the years," Meyers said of Steelers fans. "Cleveland Browns fans, on the other hand, have had very little go right for them and it's not really fair. They're no less passionate, no less deserving to have something nice happen for them.

"They live on Lake Erie, so it's probably really cold there right now with the wind chill. At least I hope it is. I hope it's so bitterly cold today that if two neighbors who have never had a playoff win to talk about tried to chat about it outside that the wind is so cold that it makes their skin feel like it's burning and that have to go back inside."

After recalling the joy that the Browns' first postseason victory since the 1994 season brought one of his friend's sons, Meyer's described his feelings about Sunday's game as such: "I'm happy for Cleveland... is the lie I'm going to tell myself today."
