What Should Cleveland Browns Fans Watch This Weekend?

The Cleveland Browns have the super-early bye week, so dedicated fans will need something else to watch this weekend.

As tempting as it is to recommend the season premiere of Revenge, let's stick to football.

Don't torture yourself by watching Tampa Bay at Pittsburgh. The Steelers will score a bunch of touchdowns at Heinz Field, and it will just be depressing.

Green Bay at Chicago should be an entertaining alternative in the early Sunday game. Quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler have combined to throw 13 touchdowns in the first three weeks of the season.

Philadelphia (3-0) will visit San Francisco in the best late-game matchup. The 49ers are 1-2, but don't be surprised to see them ruin the Eagles' perfect record.

New Orleans vs. Dallas is the Sunday night game, which could get outshined on Monday night by New England at Kansas City. The Chiefs (1-2) need to prove they belong in the conversation about the top teams in the AFC.

Cleveland Browns Vs. Baltimore Ravens: Preview and Prediction

By Jeff D. Gorman

The Cleveland Browns' unlikely win over the New Orleans Saints last week has given their fans hope that the team can do it again this week against the Baltimore Ravens.

It won't be easy. In addition to their usual fearsome defense, the Ravens' offense is much improved. Joe Flacco has several veteran targets in wide receivers Torrey Smith and Steve Smith Sr. and tight ends Owen Daniels and Dennis Pitta.

Even the loss of Ray Rice hasn't slowed the Ravens down, as Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett have carried the load in his absence.

This could be a sloppy game, as the forecast calls for a 60 percent chance of thundershowers. Either way, it should be a ground battle, as both teams want to establish the run.

The Ravens will test the Browns' new "Play Like A Brown" attitude of toughness, and in front of their fans at FirstEnergy Stadium, the Browns will pass the test.

Prediction: Browns 17, Ravens 14.

Cleveland Browns Vs. New Orleans Saints: Preview and Prediction

September 13th, 2014 at 7:59 AM
By Jeff D. Gorman

The New Orleans Saints will be looking for redemption this Sunday in the Cleveland Browns' home opener at the refurbished FirstEnergy Stadium.

New Orleans surrendered a whopping 568 yards last week in a loss to the Atlanta Falcons who, like the Browns, were 4-12 last year.

Cleveland has success running the ball against Pittsburgh last week. With Ben Tate injured, Terrence West and Isaiah Crowell must keep the chains moving.

That's because the best way to beat Saints quarterback Drew Brees is to keep him off the field. He has too many weapons for the Browns to survive a shootout with him.

Who will win? The Saints are a Super Bowl contender, and it's difficult to imagine them losing to a pair of 4-12 teams to start the season.

Prediction: Saints 31, Browns 21

What Went Wrong in the Cleveland Browns’ 30-27 Loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers

September 8th, 2014 at 7:51 AM
By Jeff D. Gorman

Defense was supposed to be the Cleveland Browns' greatest strength in 2014. The opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers showed the opposite.

The Steelers built up a 27-3 lead at halftime, and while the Browns offense erased the entire deficit, the Steelers won 30-27 on a field goal as time expired.

Browns cornerbacks Joe Haden and Justin Gilbert did not have good games, and the Browns' defense allowed a 38-yard touchdown run by Le'Veon Bell.

The Browns showed tremendous heart in coming back without the injured Ben Tate and Jordan Cameron, providing hope that happy days may not be too far away.

However, the defense – not the much-maligned offense – is going to have play a lot better.

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are coming to Cleveland next week, looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss. It won't be easy.

Cleveland Browns Offense Revives in 33-13 Win Over Chicago Bears

August 29th, 2014 at 8:24 AM
By Jeff D. Gorman

The Cleveland Browns looked so good last night against the Chicago Bears that it's a shame the game didn't count.

The Bears rested most of their starters, and the Browns' offense enjoyed some much-needed success in a 33-13 victory at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Brian Hoyer led a touchdown drive and looked sharp. Now, Browns fans have a reasonable hope that he can move the ball in the regular-season opener in Pittsburgh.

Isaiah Crowell rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown. He may have stolen the No. 3 running back spot from Deon Lewis.

Johnny Manziel threw some good-looking passes and some terrible-looking passes. However, he ran for 55 yards, so the Browns would be wise to plug him in for a few plays per game to see if he can make something happen.

Cleveland's only problem on defense is that they have so many talented players that they can't all fit on the roster.

The fun begins for real when the Browns visit the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 7.
