The Browns won’t be shy from the nationwide viewers. Cleveland is about to play in three prime-time video games, plus on Christmas day. Cleveland performs their first prime time recreation in Week 7. This can be a Thursday evening recreation versus the Denver Broncos. The following recreation beneath the lights is Week 12 when Cleveland heads to Baltimore to face the Ravens for Sunday Night time Soccer on NBC. The ultimate primetime recreation is Week 17 (No, that isn’t the ultimate week of the season anymore) because the Browns go on the highway to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers on Monday Night time Soccer on ESPN. And, as I famous earlier, the Browns play the Packers in Inexperienced Bay on Christmas Day at 4:30 P.M. in entrance of the nationwide viewers.
There are a few quirks with Cleveland’s schedule. The primary is a monumental one. In one of many first occasions, I can keep in mind, the Browns play an opponent in back-to-back video games. And, the intrigue and significance are heightened much more as a result of the opponent is the Baltimore Ravens, the most important contender subsequent to Cleveland to win the AFC North. The Browns play them in Week 12 on Sunday Night time Soccer. Cleveland has a bye the subsequent week after which performs at house versus the Ravens in Week 14. It’s such an necessary stretch for Cleveland. The opposite quirk is Week 15. There is no such thing as a official date or time but for the Las Vegas Raiders recreation as a result of they might play both Saturday or Sunday.
General, the discharge simply means we’re one step nearer to the Browns 2021 season. It can’t come quickly sufficient!
