The New England Patriots (3-1) will travel to face the Cleveland Browns (0-4).
The Patriots are trying to get the bad taste of last week out of their mouth and they get a fortunate match-up against the Browns. QB Tom Brady is back in the building and ready to start his season- and the rest of his teammates are excited to have him back.
The Patriots are 5-1 against the Browns with Brady under center, but the last time the Patriots played on the road was a nightmare 34-14 loss in November in 2010. The last game was a 27-26 shocker in 2013 where the Patriots trailed 19-3 late in the game, lost Rob Gronkowski for the season with an injury, and Brady and the offense had to score two touchdowns in the final 61 seconds to win the game.
The Browns feature the league’s best rushing offense, but they’re facing a large number of injuries to key players on the offensive line. The Patriots won’t be taking this game lightly.
