Game Preview: The Browns and Eagles kick off the season this afternoon. Both teams have restless fan bases who have not seen a winning product in quite some time (with the exception of one solid season from Chip Kelly).
For Philadelphia, it appears to be another rebuilding year with rookie Carson Wentz taking over the quarterback position. Wentz played in limited action in the preseason after sustaining a rib injury.
There is reason for optimism in Cleveland. All signs point to an offense seeing an uptick in production with a Hue Jackson remodel. RGIII takes over at quarterback, and Josh Gordon is slated to return early in the season after serving a short suspension. Cleveland drafted another receiving weapon in Baylor’s Corey Coleman. Time will tell if this is the season where the Browns can translate offseason optimism to fielding a competitive team.
