Storylines to Watch
- Browns D vs. Baker – The Browns will start the season against their former QB and 2018 first overall pick, Baker Mayfield. The Panthers acquired Mayfield in a trade from the Browns in July.
- Brissett at QB – Jacoby Brissett will start for the Browns at QB, marking the first of 11 games he's expected to start as Deshaun Watson serves an 11-game suspension.
- Running it back on D – The Browns retained nine of its 11 defensive starters from a season ago and expect the group to be one of the top defenses in the league. The group ranked fifth in total defense (311.5 yards allowed per game) last season and was particularly strong late in the year, holding opponents to 26 or less points in the last seven games.
