The Cleveland Browns 2019 regular season schedule was released Wednesday night, but what are the most difficult portions of their season?
After much anticipation, the Cleveland Browns’ 2019 regular season schedule was released last week. Browns fans have seemed to be more excited about the team’s schedule instead of the 2019 NFL Draft over the past several weeks.
Much of the excitement was due to the Browns being a valued team by the television networks. With the addition of Odell Beckham Jr. to a team that already features Baker Mayfield and Myles Garrett, the Browns were expected to be heavily featured in prime time slots.
But with the excitement over the improvement of the Browns roster has created a lot of expectations for the Browns in 2019. No longer are they expected to be at the bottom of the division standings. Instead they are expected to be at the top of the AFC North.
Those expectations played a big part in why there has been so much anticipation for the Browns’ schedule. How the schedule is set up could play a big role in how a team’s record ends up.
When looking at Cleveland’s 2019 opponents, there are several games that will excite the country to watch, including games against the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.
But there are also games on the schedule that the Browns will likely be seen as heavy favorites, including the team’s match-up against the Arizona Cardinals.
Even though the expectations for the Browns this season are playoffs, their schedule could provide some trouble. There are also certain points of the schedule that could either help the Browns gain ground in the standings or hurt them at the end of the season.
Here is a look at what will be the most difficult quarters of the 2019 regular season for the Cleveland Browns, starting with the easiest part of the schedule to the most difficult.
