The NFL will officially release the 2015 schedule at 8:00 PM ET tonight, but there are already some rumors floating around the web about a couple of games, two of which involve the Cleveland Browns.
According to Darryl Slater of NJ.com, the Browns will play the New York Jets on the road in Week 1, with a 1:00 PM ET start time.
From a quarterback perspective, Josh McCown vs. Geno Smith isn't exactly a riveting matchup. Cleveland would be going up against CB Buster Skrine, who signed with the Jets this offseason.
The other schedule rumor comes courtesy of Zac Jackson from FOX Sports. Jackson says that the Browns will play the Bengals on the road in prime time on the NFL Network for the second year in a row, with this year's outing taking place on November 5th:

If the Browns don't have any additional prime time games, wouldn't it seem a little unfair of the league to give the Bengals the home field advantage in prime time for the second year in a row (although the Browns played their best game of the year in Cincinnati last year).
Stay tuned to Dawgs By Nature around 8:00 PM ET tonight, as we will have the full schedule available with some initial analysis included.
