Tonite the NFL released the schedule, and below is the schedule of the Cleveland Browns. The Browns will open the season at home again, making it the 13 out of the last 14 years that they have started the season with a home game. However, the league did them no favors, having them host Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Highlights of the Browns schedule, they have one primetime game, Thursday September 27th they travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. The Following Sunday, October 7th they’ll host the Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
Week 15 Browns fans will get to see they qb their favorite team failed to obtain, Robert Griffin III as they’ll play host to the Washington Redskins December 16th, and we’ll get to see the 2011 Heisman winner.
Other notable Browns schedule items; they play the NFC North division, which means they’ll play against Americas Team, as well as facing the AFC West, which matches them up with the likes of the Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders.
While you can try to look at the schedule and prognosticate where the Browns will finish the year, I would recommend you hold off on playing that game. There’s too much time in the off season for things to change. You still have the draft; free agents can be released and signed to new teams, the way the team is built right now, may not be a complete representation of how they will look on September 9th.
