Browns 2021 NFL Schedule Release: AFC North Breakdown
The good news for the Browns, every team in the division plays the Chiefs, but the bad news, the Browns must start their season with them.
However, Cleveland is much improved from last year losing a limited number of players, and adding guys like John Johnson, Troy Hill, Anthony Walker, and Jadeveon Clowney.
In the first four games, the Browns play the Chiefs, Texans, Bears, and Vikings. These will be tough games, but I see the Browns going 3-1 in this scenario.
The next four games come against the Chargers, Cardinals, Broncos, and Steelers. Another four-game block where the Browns can easily go 3-1.
While the team will get off to a hot start, they will have only played one divisional game. The next five games are against the Bengals, Patriots, Lions, and Ravens twice. I see them splitting with the Ravens, but expect them to also lose an additional game in this segment.
The last four games are against the Raiders, Packers, Steelers, and Bengals. Another scenario where the Browns could go 3-1. That’s right I have the Browns at 12-5, and Champions of the AFC North.
The biggest three weeks of the season in 2021 will include the bye. In weeks 12 and 14, the Browns play the Ravens, with a bye week in-between. Winning both games would be incredible, but the Browns must win one to content in the AFC North, which I believe they will do.
