The 2002 Cleveland Browns season was the team's 50th season with the National Football League.

The Browns made the playoffs for the first time since their inaugural season as an expansion franchise. It was only the Browns' fourth year since the expansion, and their first winning season. It would also prove to be the only time that the team made the NFL playoffs in the 2000s (decade). It marks the last time that the Browns have qualified for the postseason.[1]
