Gotta love this time of year when everyone pretends like they can count wins and losses based on some preconceived notions of what teams are and what they will be for 17 straight weeks! NFL.com isn’t very optimistic about the Browns chances.
Let’s play “Find the win so the Browns can avoid going 0-16.” They’ll be huge underdogs in every game they play against much more talented teams except for these two: an away tilt at Indianapolis in October, where Andrew Luck may have his sea legs under him; and a home game against the Redskins in mid-December. Cleveland could realistically be 0-13 headed into that one.
Just remember when the Browns were supposed to roll the Tampa Bay Bucs in 2010 and how the Browns were supposed to get stomped by the Colts last year. Peyton Manning gets injured and the Buccaneers had a breakout year reminiscent of the Browns in 2007 when they beat the Browns to open the year in 2010. There are a lot of hands to be dealt between now and the end of the NFL season. The Browns could be 0-13, but it ain’t likely.
The Browns have an uphill battle, but this feels a bit like trolling. I guess it is my fault for answering…
