Browns vs. Packers: Week 14 start time, TV, radio info
By Thomas Moore
The Cleveland Browns are back home and still searching for a win. Here is how to watch or listen to today’s attempt against the Green Bay Packers.
The Cleveland Browns return today from two weeks on the road for their penultimate home game of the 2017 NFL season.
Today’s opponent is the Green Bay Packers, who at 6-6 are hanging onto the fringe of a playoff spot while waiting for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to return from injury.
The Browns, on the other hand, are in the process of securing the No. 1 overall selection in the NFL Draft for the second consecutive season.
Cleveland is still looking for its first win of the season, and just the second overall under head coach Hue Jackson. Not having to face Rodgers is a plus, but Jackson’s last two wins as a head coach have both come on Christmas Eve, so we may still be two weeks away from seeing the Browns pull out a win.
Of course, this will be the first game the Browns play this season without executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown, who was fired on Thursday, and wide receiver Kenny Britt, who was released on Friday. Now that the Browns have exorcised the two people solely responsible for holding the team back, at least according to some, a victory Monday is almost a guarantee!
