Per 506sports.com, the areas in green on the map below will get to see the Saints vs. Browns game live on FOX at 1:00 PM EST:
- Here is how the Browns' end zone will be painted this year.
- The Browns haven’t reached 180 rushing yards in back-to-back games since 1985, when the club totaled 201 against Buffalo on Nov. 17 and 181 against Cincinnati on Nov. 24.
- Former Browns who are on the Saints include QB Luke McCown and TE Benjamin Watson.
- RB Isaiah Crowell is looking to become the first Brown to score two rushing touchdowns in back-to-back games since Trent Richardson accomplished the feat as a rookie in Weeks 14-15 in 2012.
- If RB Terrance West has another 100-yard rushing performance this week, he would join Trent
Richardson (2012), Earnest Byner (1984) and Bobby Mitchell (1958) as the only Browns rookies to register back-to-back 100-yard rushing games.
- QB Brian Hoyer hasn’t throw an interception in his last 99 passing attempts (spanning four games). His last interception came in the third quarter of his Browns debut at Minnesota. With 34 more attempts without an interception, he will pass QB Derek Anderson (132 in 2008) for the fifth-longest streak in Browns history. Seriously, Anderson went that long without a pick?
- The last time these two teams met in the regular season was on October 24, 2010 in New Orleans, with the Browns beating the Saints 30-17. QB Colt McCoy went 9-of-16 for just 74 yards on the day, but he also caught a 13-yard pass by RB Peyton Hillis. The Browns intercepted QB Drew Brees four times, including two pick sixes by LB David Bowens. P Reggie Hodges also had a 68-yard run up the middle on a fake punt.
- The last time the Saints played in Cleveland was on September 10, 2006, which was also for the Browns' home opener. The Saints won 19-14 in what was QB Drew Brees' and WR Marques Colston's first games with the Saints.
