Who Is Calling The Browns Game Today: You wouldn’t know it by looking at the scoreboard, but the New England Patriots are on a roll right now. After a 1-3 start, they’ve improved to 5-4 and are within striking distance of the AFC East lead, trailing the Buffalo Bills by only half a game. This next Sunday, they’ll square off against the 5-4 Cleveland Browns. While that record has been a letdown for the Browns, they may be headed in the right way after thrashing the Cincinnati Bengals 41-16 last week and moving on from the Odell Beckham Jr. catastrophe, which occurred in Week 1.
When the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Cleveland to face the Browns on October 31, the game will be carried life by the top CBS broadcast team of Jim Nantz and Tony Romo. Tracy Wolfson is in charge of sideline reporting responsibilities for the crew on a regular basis.
Due to the fact that both Cleveland and Pittsburgh have fallen off the early pace in the division, this game has taken on more significance. The 4-3 Browns are one game and one and a half games behind the AFC North leaders, who are tied at 5-2 with the Cincinnati Bengals. The 3-3 Steelers are one and a half games behind the AFC North leaders.
Also on the schedule is the 2020 AFC Wild Card Game, which will serve as a replay of the game that halted the Steelers’ season after they started off 11-0, and in which the Browns earned their first postseason win since 1994. This will be the second time this season that Nantz and Romo will be on the sidelines for a Steelers game. In addition, they were on the radio for the team’s trip to Green Bay in the fourth week of the season.
The game will be televised on regional television and will begin at 1 p.m. ET. It will be carried on KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, which is a local station. The game will also be played on Halloween, which should result in a cast of characters that is even more colorful than typical in Cleveland’s famed Dawg Pound.
While the Patriots are on a three-game winning run, the Browns have gone back and forth between defeats and victories over their previous four contests. COVID-19 has made an appearance in the Cleveland running back room, forcing standout Nick Chubb, Demetric Fenton, and John Kelly to be placed on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list, according to the team. Their availability for Sunday’s game is in doubt, and Kareem Hunt is still on injured reserve, which means that D’Ernest Johnson and Brian Hill might be in the starting lineup for the Browns.
With Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson both missing practice time due to concussions, the Patriots’ running back corps is also severely weakened for the time being. With that in mind, Sunday’s game may be a gritty, short-pass-heavy affair as both teams hunt for guys to fill in behind Baker Mayfield and Mac Jones in the backfield.
This game has the potential to be crucial in the playoff race. Right now, both clubs seem to be legitimate Wild Card candidates, especially with the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills in their respective divisions. After a setback against the Jaguars last week, the Bills are still the top team in the AFC East, according to most observers. The winner of this game will have secured themselves what might be a significant tiebreaker in the AFC at the conclusion of the season — especially in a conference with so many clubs that are so tightly packed together as the AFC.
