One of the most interesting matchups for the 2021 Cleveland Browns schedule is the game against the New England Patriots. This matchup will take place on Week 10 of the 2021 NFL Football Season when the Cleveland Browns fly to New England to take on the Patriots.
This is one of the Browns’ more interesting matchups because they have plenty of history with the Patriots’ head coach, Bill Belichick.
Belichick was the head coach for the Cleveland Browns from (1991-1995). Belichick was never much of a winner in Cleveland. He only had one winning season with a playoff win.
Getting into the early preview matchup between these two teams, this game is supposed to happen a little after halfway through the season. This is interesting because from the looks of it, rookie QB Mac Jones is looking to be the next starting quarterback for the Patriots. The Alabama rookie is really impressing Belichick and the Pats right now, which means he could be ready to take the next step as a professional quarterback.
Baker Mayfield vs. Mac Jones would be an exciting matchup to watch. I say this because the Browns have a really great chance at winning this game. They have a great chance at winning this game because the Patriots are trying to rebuild after QB Tom Brady left for Tampa Bay a year ago.
Looking back on history, the Browns have struggled with New England. Even though the Browns would struggle with the Patriots in many past games, the Browns did defeat them back in 2010, 34-14. It being the year the Patriots went 14-2.
That day in 2010, the Browns got into Belichick’s head and won the game outright. My prediction is the Browns will again get into Belichick’s head and show him that the Browns are coming to play and that it will not be easy for the Pats to win.
My early score prediction for this game is:
