The Schedule in 2013
The Browns hit the field in 2013 ready to take on all comers that dare enter their house at
FirstEnergy Stadium. The Browns are hoping to improve in the win column this season as they continue to rebuild their roster.
The schedule is absolutely loaded with intriguing matchups that will show Browns fans just how well this team is coming along,
and Cleveland fans are chomping at the bit to get to the best games this season.
November 3rd will present Cleveland
one of their biggest games of the season, as the Browns and Ravens will get it on when the reigning Super Bowl champs hit
the field at FirstEnergy. The Ravens made an incredible run to the Super Bowl last postseason and everyone, including the
Browns, will see that bulls-eye on Baltimore's back this season. The Browns will look to shut down Baltimore running back
Ray Rice in this contest, and if they can do that while establishing their own running game, Cleveland could win the day.
in November, on the 24th, the Browns will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a big divisional matchup. The Steelers have had
a lot of success against the Browns in recent years, but Pittsburgh looks more vulnerable now than they have in a long time,
and the Browns could capitalize on that with a good game from both their offense and their defense.
Cleveland Browns have had some tough seasons recently, but things appear to be looking up for this franchise. With a new front
office now in place, and a new head coach hired in the offseason in Rob Chudzinski, hope springs anew for the Browns in 2013.
This could be a make or break season for second-year quarterback Brandon Weeden in Cleveland, as the signal caller is coming
off a rookie year in which he struggled quite a bit. With the new front office in town, Weeden surely knows that the people
that drafted him are gone from Cleveland and he's going to have to prove himself if he wants to stick around.
made a big trade early on in the season when they shipped their first-round pick from last year, running back Trent Richardson,
to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for a first round selection in 2014. The organizations brought in veteran Willis McGahee
to help shoulder the bulk of the carries in the ground game. On the defensive side of the ball, the Browns are an improving
unit that has the potential to be very good if things continue to progress for this group. With an emerging shutdown cornerback
in Joe Haden, Cleveland is hoping that their defense can keep them in most games this season as the offense catches up.
Fans that have been to FirstEnergy Stadium know what a fantastic venue it is to experience all
the National Football League has to offer. The season will start warm in Cleveland, but surely end with some classic cold
weather games that are the backbone of the history of the NFL. The Browns are known for their passionate fans, led by the
famed Dawg Pound where the most diehard fans in the stadium reside.
You can join the Dawg Pound in the raucous sections
of the stadium or play it cool in the more family friendly areas of the park, whatever you prefer. It's a great atmosphere
at an NFL game, one filled with bench-gripping moments when everyone in the house in waiting for the next play with baited
Over the years, Monday Night Football has become an establishment in the National
Football League. The Cleveland Browns were one of the two teams involved in the first Monday Night Football game. Who was
the other team?
The answer is the New York Jets, who were beaten by the Browns by a score of 31-21.
Cleveland Browns were founded in 1945 as a member of the All-America Football Conference. Ownership originally wanted to call
the team the Panthers, but in a very unique situation in the history of football ended up settling on naming the team after
the organization's first head coach, Paul Brown. The Browns were nearly unstoppable during their first several seasons of
existence and entered the NFL in 1950, a season in which they won the NFL Championship. The franchise added three more NFL
titles before the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, the last of which came in 1964.
The Browns have yet to win a Super Bowl and
have been on the bad luck side of some memorable postseason moments, the most famous of which came at the hands of Hall-of-Fame
quarterback John Elway and the Denver Broncos in a series that has become known as "The Drive" among NFL fans and historians.
The Browns last made the postseason in 2002 and are looking to return to the playoffs with a stellar regular season this year.
