- Panthers QB Baker Mayfield (2018-21, #1 overall selection of the 2018 NFL Draft), WR Rashard Higgins (2016-21, #172 overall selection of the 2016 NFL Draft), T Cameron Erving (2015-16, #19 overall selection of the 2015 NFL Draft), and C Austin Corbett (2018-19, #33 overall selection of the 2018 NFL Draft) are all former draft picks and members of the Cleveland Browns.
- Panthers assistant head coach Al Holcomb, offensive line coach, James Campen and defensive pass game coordinator/secondary coach Steve Wilks were all on the Browns’ 2019 coaching staff. Holcomb was defensive run game coordinator/linebackers coach, Campen was offensive line coach, and Wilks was defensive coordinator.
- Panthers special teams coordinator Chris Tabor served in the same capacity for the Browns from 2011-17.
- Panthers passing game specialist Matt Lombardi served as a scout for the Browns to start his NFL career in 2013.
- Browns assistant offensive line coach Scott Peters was part of the Panthers’ practice squad as an interior offensive lineman during the 2006 NFL season.
- The Browns have a 2-4 all-time record against the Panthers.
- The last time these two teams met was on December 9, 2018, when the Browns defeated the Panthers 26-20 in Cleveland. It was a battle between Cam Newton of the Panthers and Baker Mayfield (then on the Browns). Jarvis Landry caught two first-half touchdowns for Cleveland, and it was tied 17-17 at the half. Cleveland was down 20-17 heading to the final quarter of play, but a Nick Chubb touchdown run and Greg Joseph field goal gave them the 26-20 lead with half of the fourth quarter remaining; it stayed that way.
