Well, nothing special in this game except the history behind the two teams with the Browns having a terrible overall win-loss record the last 5 or 6 years, but having an 80% win percentage roughly against the Saints in the last 5 or 6 years this game still is somewhat unpredictable. Highly doubtful that anything extraordinary comes out in the Browns this early in the regular season though. I predict Saints: 21 to Browns: 10.
