The Cleveland Browns open the NFL season this afternoon as one of the trendy picks to make the playoffs.
Led by second-year quarterback Baker Mayfield, the Browns haven’t had this much buzz in a long time.
Do you think the Cleveland Browns or Pittsburgh Steelers will have a better season this year?
They enter the game as a nearly 6-point favorite against the Tennessee Titans.
Mayfield, who broke Peyton Manning’s rookie record with 27 touchdown passes in just 14 games, has generated most of the talk during camp.
He's embraced his role as team leader and is being hailed as the franchise's savior.
They also have star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. — the one with the famous one-handed grab from a few years ago — and electric running back Nick Chubb.
It's hard not to buy into the hype — unless, maybe, you’re a Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
And while Steelers fans might notice the fervor around the Browns, they might like not getting the attention this season.
With Antonio Brown in Oakland and Le’Veon Bell in New York, the 2019 offseason has been relatively drama-free.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is back, first round pick Devin Bush appears to have provided the speed the defense has been lacking and the team seems to have a focus that's been missing in years past as they prepare to open tonight against the New England Patriots.
What do you think will happen this season? Who will have better season: the Browns or the Steelers?
We'll have to wait until Nov. 14 to see the two teams meet on the field for the first time. Until that happens, tell us how you think their seasons will go by sending a Sound-Off and voting at meadvilletribune.com.
