Per 506sports.com, the areas in purple on the map below will get to see the Browns vs. Vikings game live on CBS at 1:00 PM EST:
- Usually, there are some connections of players who used to be on opposing teams. That isn't the case this week, though: these two teams have very little affiliation with each other.
- TE Jordan Cameron needs just 24 yards receiving this week to surpass his career single-season best of 226 yards set in 2012. Cameron six receptions to pass Kellen Winslow (19 in 2006) for the most receptions in a Browns uniform through the first three weeks of a season. Cameron currently has 14 receptions through the team’s first two games.
- The last time these two teams met was on September 13, 2009 in Cleveland. The Browns lost by a score of 34-20. Brady Quinn was the Browns' starting quarterback, and he was going up against up against Brett Favre. That was Favre's first game as a member of the Vikings, but the real story of that day was Adrian Peterson tearing it up for 180 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. The Browns actually led 13-10 at halftime during that game, but Peterson exploded in the second half. Joshua Cribbs had a punt return for a touchdown. The only three starters still on Cleveland from that game are LT Joe Thomas, C Alex Mack, and LB D'Qwell Jackson.
- This is the Vikings' first home game of the season after opening on the road twice.
