It’s time for the Cleveland Browns to put 2011 behind them. Now is the time to look forward to the NFL Draft and, yes, even their opponents for next season.
While the regular season schedules won’t be released for a while, we at least get a look at who the Browns will match-up with in 2012. Along with their typical AFC North opponents, the Browns will also be squaring off with teams from the NFC East, AFC West, AFC East, and AFC South.
Here are the Cleveland Browns’ 2012 opponents:
San Diego Chargers
Kansas City Chiefs
New York Giants
While it is nearly impossible to try and predict a season at this point, 2012 will present some intriguing match-ups for the Browns. Two of the most interesting games will be against the Denver Broncos (i.e. the Denver Tebows) and Indianapolis Colts, who could very well be playing with Andrew Luck as their starting quarterback.
Also, imagine a scenario in which the Browns trade their pick to the Washington Redskins, allowing them to draft Robert Griffin III. That could come back to haunt them as early as next fall.
