The NFL season is finally here, and the Browns open at home against the Eagles. It’s the 13th time in the 14-year history of the “new” Browns that the season opener will be held along Lake Erie. The Browns will be starting rookies at quarterback, running back, and right tackle. It’s the first time a team has started first-year players at those key positions since the inaugural season of the Houston Texans.
Most of the oddsmakers favor the Eagles by 10 points, but as we all know, anything can happen on any Sunday in the NFL. Join us in the comments for the first Sunday of the season.
