Quick Hitter Observations

  • Cleveland opens the season at home against the Cincinnati Bengals as 2.5-point underdogs, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The season is book-ended with Bengals in Week 18.
  • If you're a creature of habit, then the whole middle part of the schedule will be regular games (not featured in prime time). The Browns have two games under the lights: Monday Night Football in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and then on Thursday Night Football in Week 17 against the Aaron Rodgers-led New York Jets. The Jets game is the team's lone home prime time game.
  • The Browns’ bye comes in Week 5, which is a bit early for my liking. Also, the period after Thursday Night Football is often viewed as a mini-bye, but that doesn’t come until between Weeks 17 and 18. Hopefully everyone can stay healthy.
  • Four of the Browns’ first five games are at home. Then, five of the next seven are on the road.
  • The Week 15 game against the Bears is TBD regarding the date. That could be the time of year when the league flexes certain games to Saturday.
