At long last, the 2022 NFL regular season is here, and the Cleveland Browns will start what they hope is a run towards the postseason with a contest versus the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Interestingly enough, this game will pit the Browns against their former quarterback Baker Mayfield.
To their credit, multiple members of the Browns said that they either didn’t care about Mayfield’s comment or that it, if anything, could help both sides create an exciting and intense game.
Cleveland hasn’t exactly done well in its season openers for a very long time, and Sunday will be an opportunity to reverse that trend.

A Good Start Will Be Essential For The Browns
With new starting quarterback Deshaun Watson suspended for the first 11 games of the new season, it is imperative that Cleveland stack up as many wins as possible early and often.
The Carolina Panthers are 10-23 during Matt Rhule's tenure.
The Cleveland Browns are 20-15 during Kevin Stefanski's tenure.

As long as it does so, it can remain within striking distance of a playoff spot once Watson returns, especially if it is fortunate enough to witness other teams in the AFC North, especially the Baltimore Ravens and the defending conference champion Cincinnati Bengals, struggle a bit.
Jacoby Brissett will be the Browns’ QB1 in lieu of Watson, with Joshua Dobbs, Josh Rosen and Kellen Mond waiting in the wings just in case.
