Browns have a knarly schedule this season. They have to not only play the division in the AFC South and North twice but the NFC East who BTW are giving the AFC a run for its money as the toughest division in the league.
Browns had one of the worst defenses in the league last season, and that is not something you are going to change overnight, even with the additions of Shaun Rogers and Corey Williams in the Browns 3-4 defense.
Thing is the 3-4 is a complicated defense and too often teams such as the jets and Browns don't realize they have to shift out of it and into a 4-3 when they lack the personell to run a 3-4. It takes great continuity for the 3-4 to be executed properly, besides having the right personell to run it. Browns defense and this schedule are going to be like oil and water, not a very good mix giving the edge to the Texans.
If the Browns can break even with this schedule that would be some accomplishment in itself IMO.
