By all accounts, the Cleveland Browns have greatly improved themselves under new GM John Dorsey. Almost every position group has seen an upgrade, but none more important than the quarterback. Guide to watch NFL football Cleveland Browns live stream online, news, rankings, photos, more on NFL TV Pass.
For the first time in years, the Browns have an experienced passer at the helm. Tyrod Taylor comes in with a chip on his shoulder and a drive to win more games than the Buffalo Bills, who sent him away after their surprising 2017 season.
Putting Jarvis Landry in the mix with Josh Gordon and adding Carlos Hyde to the backfield will pay dividends immediately, too.
But it takes more than talent to turn around a franchise with a losing culture. How many wins will Dorsey’s moving and shaking produce?
This is how we see the Cleveland Browns’ 2018 season unfolding, game-by-game:
Week 1: Steelers (0-0) at Browns (0-0)
Pittsburgh finds themselves answering questions about age, retirement and lost steps. Cleveland answers questions about how much they improved and how many games they will win.
They almost win one right here, but Ben Roethlisberger and company escape by the narrowest of margins in the Browns’ home opener. (Steelers 18-17)
Week 2: Browns (0-1) at Saints (1-0)
Cleveland hopes they will sneak up on teams that don’t respect them after their past couple of campaigns.
Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara won’t let that happen, even with Mark Ingram still serving his suspension. The Saints show the Browns what a winning culture looks like. (Saints 24-13)
Week 3: Jets (0-2) at Browns (0-2)
Cleveland tees up as a 3-point favorite against a Jets club still trying to decide what style of offense to run. New York does not seem bothered, nor inspired, by their underdog status.
Jarvis Landry and Tyrod Taylor lead the Browns to their first victory since 2016 over their familiar rival from years past. It’s a start. (Browns 20-13)
Week 4: Browns (1-2) at Raiders (1-2)
Cleveland travels to California to face the Raiders, where John Gruden has the Raiders convinced the Browns are the second coming of Joe Lombardi’s old Packer teams.
The thought of incurring Gruden’s wrath inspires the Raiders to make short work of the visitors. Derek Carr makes Dorsey wonder if his new defensive secondary is up to the task or not. (Raiders 27-13)
Week 5: Ravens (3-1) at Browns (1-3)
With a tough schedule ahead, Baltimore knows they need to take care of business against the Clevelands of the league if they expect to return to the playoffs.
Cleveland just wants to win another game. The defensive secondary recovers well from the Raiders’ onslaught and shuts down Joe Flacco’s bevy of new receivers. Tyrod Taylor squeezes just enough offense through the Ravens’ attack to pull out a victory. (Browns 19-17)
Week 6: Chargers (5-1) at Browns (2-3)
It’s not exactly a cross-country flight from Los Angeles to Cleveland, but there is a couple of hours time difference. Maybe that’s why the Chargers don’t wake up until Cleveland jumps out to a big lead.
Philip Rivers attacks the Browns’ defense in the second half but comes up short. The Cleveland Browns enter Week 7 with a .500 record. Vegas is taking large playoff bets on the darlings of the AFC North. (Browns 20-17)
Week 7: Browns (3-3) at Buccaneers (0-5)
Tampa Bay faces a brutal start to a season with four playoff teams and a date against the Bears in Chicago. When they look up and see the visiting Browns are 3-3, they wonder what they did to deserve their scheduling fate.
Cleveland has lost the element of surprise. The Buccaneers are well-prepared for Browns. Their defense makes sure the Browns don’t leave Florida with another victory. (Buccaneers 18-13)
Week 8: Browns (3-4) at Steelers (5-2)
Pittsburgh looks ready to run away with the AFC North. Exacting a little revenge for the trouble Cleveland gave them on opening day is sweet, too.
This is the first week that Cleveland looks outclassed on the field. Hue Jackson reports a positive from the event, noting that Taylor and others expressed anger at their effort. That is a plus for the Browns’ franchise. (Steelers 30-13)
Week 9: Chiefs (4-4) at Browns (3-5)
Kansas City appears to have righted the ship after their 2-4 start. Pat Mahomes comes off two consecutive multiple-touchdown games just in time to tee off against the Browns.
Tyrod Taylor and Carlos Hyde do their best to make a game out of it, but the Chiefs’ offense is too much for the Browns. (Chiefs 28-20)
Week 10: Falcons (4-4) at Browns (3-6)
Like the Chiefs, the Falcons seem to have found their footing after an 0-3 start. They have to keep winning if they are going to climb back into the playoff conversation.
Cleveland is left to wonder how, on a last-place schedule, they manage to meet six playoff contending teams in the first ten weeks. The Browns put up a valiant fight, but the Falcon’s escape with the win. (Falcons 19-17)
Week 11: The Browns are on their bye week.
Week 12: Browns (3-7) at Bengals (0-10)
Cleveland salivates at the notion of extending the Bengals’ winless misery. They come out firing on all cylinders against the weak Cincinnati defense.
Andy Dalton, however, isn’t impressed with the new-look Browns. Like always, he plays his best football of the season against Cleveland. Cincinnati’s defense makes just enough plays to secure the Bengals’ first victory. (Bengals 24-21)
Week 13: Browns (3-8) at Texans (9-2)
If you are an NFL teams trying to break a losing streak, we don’t recommend lining up against a team on a nine-game winning streak in their home stadium.
But, after a raucous pre-game speech, Tyrod Taylor leads the Browns to an unlikely win against the heavily-favored Texans. Cleveland is smiling again. (Browns 27-24)
Week 14: Panthers (9-3) at Browns (4-8)
Carolina has the New Orleans Saints breathing down their necks in the race for the NFC South title. They can’t afford to take the Browns lightly this week.
They don’t. The Panthers’ top-rated defense stifles Taylor and the rest of the offense. Cleveland’s defense puts up a good fight, but in the end, Carolina will maintain its slim lead over the Saints. (Panthers 20-10)
Week 15: Browns (4-9) at Broncos (4-9)
Case Keenum is reportedly among those questioning why John Elway didn’t make a bigger push for Kirk Cousin as the Broncos’ flawed offensive line and lack of running attack make him a target every week.
This week is no different, but the Broncos’ defense comes to the rescue with an equally ferocious attack on Tyrod Taylor. Cleveland’s defense scores a touchdown, but the Broncos answer in kind. The Browns go home stuck at four wins. (Broncos 17-14)
Week 16: Bengals (3-11) at Browns (4-10)
Cincinnati comes in winners of three of their last four games, all at home. They are determined to catch the Browns before the end of the season.
Cleveland is more determined to pile on the Bengals in their woeful state. The Browns treat their fans to the biggest margin of victory in years over the hapless Bengals. (Browns 33-10)
Week 17: Browns (5-10) at Ravens (7-8)
Baltimore was officially eliminated from playoff contention last week, but they want to finish strong in what could be the end of an era for the Ravens. Joe Flacco is expected to retire with GM Ozzie Newsome and there is uncertainty about coach John Harbaugh’s future.
The Browns can’t match the Ravens’ intensity in an emotional day in Baltimore. (Ravens 24-3)
What happens next?
Five wins are more than Cleveland expected coming into the season, but not all is peaches and cream in Ohio. There is tension between long-time coach Hue Jackson and the GM Dorsey, as well as Jackson’s new offensive coordinator, Todd Haley. After stating publicly that Haley would have full control of the offense, Jackson makes Haley change his game plan on the fly. Another Hue Jackson power struggle ensues.
