-Expect starters to play a full quarter and then one or two series in the second quarter.
-Falcons C Alex Mack was with the Browns from 2009 to 2015, so this is a quick return to FirstEnergy Stadium for him.
-Atlanta offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was in the same position with the Browns in 2014, but had a falling out with the club. Mike McDaniel, who was the Browns’ receivers coach in 2014, is now an offensive assistant under Shanahan.
-Atlanta has a defensive passing game coordinator position filled by Jerome Henderson, who was Cleveland's defensive backs coach from 2009-2011. Defensive line coach Bryan Cox was in the same position for Cleveland from 2009-2010.
-The Browns will have new metal detector screening procedures in place for this week’s game.
