Browns Will be Featured in Prime Time Next Season

A schedule hasn't been released for the 2012-2013 NFL season, and it's might not even be close to being in the works yet. One thing is for sure though: the Cleveland Browns will have at least one prime time game.

Commissioner Roger Goodell held a press conference Friday to discuss a variety of things, one of which was the fact that all 32 teams would be featured in a prime time game next season. One of the reasons that will be possible is that Thursday Night Football will be expanded next year. Instead of getting started past the half-way point of the season, the NFL Network will host games from Week 2 to Week 15, not including the Thanksgiving week (which NBC will host). Presumably, NBC will also host the Week 1 Thursday game to open the season.

NBC typically features the legitimate "best games of the week," so I doubt Cleveland will get one of those contests. They didn't have a Monday Night game last year though, so maybe that is what they'll end up getting.
