Cleveland Browns Stadium

Cleveland Browns Stadium

Located in downtown Cleveland on over 30 acres of land, Cleveland Browns Stadium, also known as "The Dawg Pound," is the only stadium in the NFL that has yet to host a playoff game. With new owner Jimmy Haslam at the helm, talented stars like Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson on the field and over 73,000 fans in the stands, the Browns look to reverse that trend in the near future.

Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Soldier Field in Chicago and Superdome in New Orleans are just a few iconic NFL stadiums in the US.
