Browns will host Steelers in season opener (full schedule)


The Cleveland Cavaliers may be in the middle of their postseason run to try and win back-to-back titles and the Cleveland Indians may have just started, but the Cleveland Browns and the rest of the NFL want people to know that they will not be forgotten less than a week before the NFL Draft. Thursday night, the NFL released all 32 teams’ schedules, with plenty of games to look forward to in the fall, all of which don’t involve any team that dons a brown and orange jersey.

Unlike in recent seasons, the Browns will get their first dose of their most-hated rival in September 10’s season opener, when they host the Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Besides their game in London, another game that Browns fans can look forward to is December 3, when they will travel to Los Angeles and take on the Chargers in their new city.

Here’s their entire regular season schedule:


Due to them having a “home game” in London, the Browns will have just seven regular season home games at FirstEnergy Stadium during the 2017 season. It will be their first regular season game outside of the United States.

Unfortunately, the brown and orange will not have a primetime game, not even on a Thursday night like they did in years past. Their lone nationally televised game will be October 29, when they take on the Minnesota Vikings in London. Outside of their games at London (9:30 a.m. ET start) and Los Angeles (4:05 p.m. ET start), the other 14 games of the regular season are all have 1 p.m. ET kickoff times.

For the seventh time in eight years, the Browns’ season will conclude with them playing the Steelers, which means that their season will begin and end against their biggest “rival”.

If the Browns want to look somewhat respectable this season, they better take advantage of their schedule early on. If they wait too long, four of their final six games are on the road. Their two home games in that stretch are against the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens.

In case you missed it, here’s the team’s preseason schedule:

  • Thursday, August 10: New Orleans Saints, 8 p.m. ET
  • Monday, August 21: New York Giants, 8 p.m. ET
  • Saturday, August 26: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 7:30 p.m. ET
  • Thursday, August 31: at Chicago Bears, 8 p.m. ET

    Cool. By Week 5, we’ll already be at the bottom of the division pile.

    “By Week 3, we’ll already be at the bottom of the division pile.” /ftfy

    After we lose to the Ratbirds, we’ll be 0-2 while the other 3 teams have a chance to be 2-0 or 1-1.

  • RGB

    Not sure if I’ll have the cojones to pick 0-16 this year.

  • Garry_Owen

    Yeah. This one’s actually going to be hard to pick. Not like last year, which was like picking cheerios off of a baby’s forehead.

  • RGB

    I guess technically I did pick 0-20, but no way I’m picking that. Screw you Chargers…
    Depending on the draft and how the OL shapes up, I’m thinking somewhere around 2-14 to 4-12.

  • Garry_Owen

    I’m not even willing to make those initial projections. Not yet. There is much to see with this team, and I have a reputation to uphold!

  • RGB

    We need to see what they get for JT.

  • tigersbrowns2

    no way !! … yes, it could happen , but no way !!

  • tigersbrowns2

    hi RGB … not this year , baby … there are easily 5 wins on that schedule …

  • tigersbrowns2

    yeah , can’t blame you there … but it will have to start going the other way eventually … it may as well be now.

  • Garry_Owen

    Totally. And 5 wins is reasonably conservative. Just don’t jump that up to 12 after the draft, okay?

  • JM85

    No way they go 1-15 again.

  • 1:00pm Sunday games are the best, and Thursday night games are an abomination anyway. Also, this looks like 2-14 to me. Maybe the draft can double that number.
