Predict the Score:
- The Browns need 84 passing yards to reach 4,000 passing yards this season. It would mark the fifth time (1980, 1981, 1986 and 2013) in team history that the team reached that mark. If Cleveland also runs for 57 yards, it will be the fourth time in team history that the club threw for 4,000 yards and rushed for 1,500 yards in the same season (1980, 1981 and 1986).
- With 23 receiving yards from TE Gary Barnidge and 87 from WR Travis Benjamin, it would be the second time in team history that two players recorded 1,000-yard receiving seasons in the same year. It has previously only been accomplished in 2007 by TE Kellen Winslow and WR Braylon Edwards.
- TE Gary Barnidge needs one receiving touchdown to outright hold the Browns’ record for most touchdown receptions by a tight end in a season. He is currently tied with Ozzie Newsome who had nine in 1979.
- The Browns will wear their brown-tops, white-pants, brown-socks uniform combination.
