Cleveland Browns: 5 toughest opposing QBs in 2016
1. Tom Brady
The New England Patriots head to Cleveland in Week 5 to take on the Browns. This is already one of the hardest games on the Browns’ schedule, and it only gets harder because of an important fact.
This will be Tom Brady‘s first game back after serving a four-game suspension.
The Browns must prepare for an aerial assault of epic proportions as Brady will look to stick it to Roger Goodell and the NFL for a questionable suspension. Whoever made the schedule clearly has no sympathy for the rebuilding Browns.

Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time, and has put up some ridiculous numbers throughout his career.
He has thrown for over 4,000 yards in every season since 2011 and has never had a losing record as a starter in New England. Couple that with four Super Bowl victories and the Browns look doomed in Week 5.
The Patriots may struggle in the first four weeks, so Brady’s return will bring a sense of urgency to get the team focused and get back to the playoffs for the eighth consecutive season.
It should be the hardest game for the Browns all season, and it comes just one week after Griffin makes his return to Washington to take on the Redskins. A win in that game can give the Browns confidence when going up against Brady and the Patriots, but a loss will take away any momentum in the matchup against an angry Tom Brady.
