Cleveland Browns five most likely 2019 primetime games
1. At New England Patriots
After defeating the Rams in the Super Bowl last season, the New England Patriots will once again be featured on national television often in 2019. And with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady still in Foxborough, they will remain one of the best teams in the NFL.
This game could be seen as a potential passing of the torch for the best quarterback in the NFL. Brady is arguably the best quarterback in the league’s history and has continued his dominance over the NFL despite his age. However, there is a young quarterback in Cleveland who is looking to claim that title from Brady.
Mayfield showed flashes of dominance in his rookie season last season and he was a big reason for the strong finish to Cleveland’s 2018 season. Similar to Brady, Mayfield was able to elevate the talent around him and helped his team win ball games.
If there was any game on the Browns 2019 schedule that gave them the best chance of being featured on Sunday Night Football, it will be this match-up. No matter when these two teams play, Brady playing against Mayfield will be a massive story line. If the league was smart, putting this game on the biggest stage of the week should provide them with massive ratings.
