Weeks 1 through 4
Week 1 Cincinnati Bengals (win)
The Browns haven’t had any luck in Week 1 victories for almost 25 years. They did win a year ago in the game against the Carolina Panthers. Cleveland also has had the Bengals’ number over the past few seasons. So, I’ll start with a gamble and go with our Browns team in the win. Everyone will think Super Bowl after this win.
Week 2 Pittsburgh Steelers (Monday Night Football) (loss)
Not going to be pretty in this matchup. The Browns will look bad on Monday Night Football and fans will begin to worry again.
Week 3 Tennessee Titans (win)
A return home to Cleveland will do the team well and they mustered up just enough to pull off an ugly offensive effort game and win 12-10.
Week 4 Baltimore Ravens (loss)
Those damn Ratbirds come to Cleveland and somehow manage to get the win. The explosive offense the team thought they would have has stalled again and there are more questions than answers as the team rolls into a very early season bye week.
