There’s one storyline to focus on when the Patriots visit the Browns on Sunday.
Tom Brady returns from his four-week suspension, with the Patriots finishing 3-1 in his absence. It’ll be interesting to see if there’s any rust on 39-year old Brady, who was spotted vacationing with his wife as late as two weeks ago.
With Brady comes a change to the Patriots offense, which has been sluggish with Jacoby Brissett at the helm. Jimmy Garoppolo was effective through 1.5 games, but the absence of Rob Gronkowski in the passing game has been notable. Expect less of LeGarrette Blount, who carried the ball 22, 29, and 24 times respectively in the team’s first three games.
For the Browns, it’s another week with Cody Kessler at the helm. The USC product has been decent in two starts, and the Browns have done a good job maximizing Terrelle Pryor’s talent. The Browns haven’t been getting blown out in their 0-4 start, scoring at least 20 points in their last three games.
