Game facts: Patriots at Browns

Belichick's impact:The Browns have the same number of playoff appearances in the 18 season after fiiring Belichick as they did in their five seasons under Belichick.

No deep passes: Of Cody Kessler's 40 pass attempts last week, only one traveled more than 15 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. That pass was intercepted.

Watch out for Brady?: The Browns are one of just four teams to allow 10+ pass touchdowns already this season. Tom Brady had 36 pass TDs last year.

Key matchup: The Browns lead the NFL in rushing this season (149.3 YPG and 5.7 YPC), but the Pats run defense has been strong as well. So far this year, New England has held David Johnson, Lamar Miller and LeSean McCoy each below 90 yards rushing.
