Nov. 5, 2015  @ Cincinnati Bengals (Thursday Night Football)

For the second year in a row the Battle of Ohio takes center stage in prime time as the Bengals host the Browns at Paul Brown Stadium. Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and Company look to avenge the drubbing the Browns defense laid on them in their last visit to the Queen City. Look for the Browns to come in flying high off two consecutive wins and pumped to be on prime time, but run out of gas on a short week. Bengals 24, Browns 21

Nov. 15, 2015 @ Pittsburgh Steelers

The NFL did the Browns no favors scheduling both matchups against the Steelers late in the year. Cleveland travels to Pittsburgh in Week 10 to face their arch nemesis the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger. Antonio Brown has owned Joe Haden as of late, and the Steelers defense historically has feasted on the Browns offense. The Browns winning streak comes to a halt in the Steel City. Steelers 28, Browns 13

Nov. 22, 2015 Bye Week

The Browns lick their collective wounds after a 5-5 start and get ready for a six-game gauntlet to end the year.

Nov. 30, 2015 vs. Baltimore Ravens (Monday Night Football)

The Ravens fly into town for the Browns first home appearance on MNF since the 2008 season, when they beat the reigning Super Bowl champion New York Giants in electric fashion. The Browns should benefit from the bye week off, and I can’t see them losing their first MNF game at home in seven years. Browns 31, Ravens 16

Dec. 6, 2015, vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The fourth straight AFC North game culminates with the Bengals coming into Cleveland the first weekend of December. The Browns won’t forget the bad taste they were left with in their mouths after dropping the game to the Bengals just three weeks earlier. Look for the Browns defense to take out its frustrations on the Bengals. Browns 24, Bengals 12

Next: Weeks 14-17
