Inside the 2012 Schedule

The Browns can't seem to catch a break. Coming off a tough season in 2011, things don't get much easier in 2012 with games against the NFC East and AFC West. They likely will be underdogs in every game they play against much more talented teams except for these two: an away tilt at Indianapolis in October, where Andrew Luck might have his sea legs under him; and a home game against the Redskins in mid-December.

3 Key Moments
Week 3 vs. Bills
In a year where wins might be hard to come by for the perpetually rebuilding Browns, this presents one of the best chances for Cleveland to notch a W, along with an away matchup against the Colts.
Week 12 vs. Steelers
Cleveland's defense is actually pretty decent, and it had Pittsburgh's number a year ago, giving up just 27 total points in two losses. If the stars align and the Browns win this game, they'll party in the Flats for a month, regardless of their record.
Week 15 vs. Redskins
Cleveland likely faces Robert Griffin III, whom they decided to not trade up to draft. Will the Browns trot out Colt McCoy or Ryan Tannehill for this one? One team will be feeling a lot better about its future after this matchup.
