  • The Browns open the season on the road against the Steelers. That beats the trend since 1999, where we've mostly hosted home games. It raises the stakes to face our heated rivals right off the bat, and our new veteran leaders will need to step it up.

  • The home opener is against the Saints in Week 2. The last time the Browns had a home opener against the Saints was when Drew Brees first got there, and he made a statement right away.

  • Cleveland's bye is very early this year, coming in Week 4. That means uninterrupted football for 13 straight weeks.

  • After the bye, the Browns have their soft stretch of the schedule, taking on the Titans, Steelers, Jaguars, Raiders, Buccaneers, Bengals, Texans, Falcons, and Bills. Out of those nine games, the only opponent who finished above .500 in 2013 was the Bengals.

  • Cleveland finishes with two games on the road, and four of their last six games are on the road. Cleveland weather will be less of a factor this season.

What do you guys think? Is there a certain game you know you'll be getting tickets for?
