NEW YORK - The Cleveland Browns will kick off their season against their division rival Pittsburgh Steelers. The NFL announced the dates Wednesday for the Cleveland Browns.
If the Browns are going to improve on their annual 4-win total, it looks like the 2014 schedule may make it easier. While they face off against four playoff teams, nine of the 13 teams they play finished 2013 with a .500 record or worse.
That includes six teams who, like the Browns, have a top 10 pick in this year's NFL Draft.
However, that doesn't mean they'll be making a run at the Lombardi Trophy any time soon. According to VegasInsider.com , Cleveland has a 75:1
