- The Browns kick off the season against the Miami Dolphins at home, where Cleveland will get a taste right away of wide receiver Mike Wallace in a bout between second-year quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Ryan Tannehill.
- Rob Chudzinski will get an early chance to face the defending Super Bowl Champions on the road, in a game that will show if Ray Horton's defense will be fierce in the AFC North. It doesn't get much easier facing Adrian Peterson one week later.
- From Week 4 to Week 6, the Browns play three straight games, including a prime time game against...the Buffalo Bills? Well, I guess it breaks the tradition of us only facing the Ravens and Steelers in prime time. It's actually a great three-game home stretch, considering all three contests seem winnable.
- The Browns will face the Ravens twice before they face the Steelers once. I like having the bye at the mid-way point of the season again. After the bye, they pick up with two division games.
- From Week 12 to Week 16, the Browns have two favorable matchups (Jaguars and the Jets) and two tough ones (Patriots and Bears). Overall, it's not a bad mix.
- The Browns close out the season against the Steelers again. I would dread it so much if Cleveland was actually competing for the playoffs that late into the season.
I think this is a very well structured schedule for Cleveland. There isn't an extended "brutal" stretch. What do you guys think? Is there a certain game you know you'll be getting tickets for?
