The city of Cleveland cannot be too optimistic about today. As the NFL’s only winless team, the lowly Browns will pit QB Cody Kessler against a fully rested, hyper-motivated Hall of Famer in Tom Brady. Wins are not easy to come by in the NFL, but the it’s tough to conceive a scenario in which the Pats don’t cover the 10.5 spread. Sprinkle in the sour taste in their mouths after getting shut out at home for the first time in 10 years last week against the Bills, the Patriots have an excess of bulletin board material,
Jabaal Sheard, the Browns second round draft pick in 2011 and current Patriots defensive end, is particularly jazzed up about Touchdown Tommy returning to the field–so much so that he rocked a backwards TB12 jersey to Cleveland’s FirstEnergy Stadium this morning.
Brady went with the classic Jos. A. Bank suit. Buy three and they’ll throw in a third world country.
Pats/Browns square off today at 1 pm EST on CBS. Pray for Cleveland.
