In an ironic twist of fate, the Cleveland Browns may play host to the most interesting game of the 2016 NFL season. In any other year, a home contest against the New England Patriots might find itself buried in the afternoon slate, passed over for another high-profile affair. If the current federal court ruling against Tom Brady stands, however, this will not be an ordinary year. It will also mean that the four-time Super Bowl Champion and Deflategate pariah will make his return in Week 5 against, you guessed it, the Cleveland Browns.
It’s been six years since Tom Brady took the field in Cleveland—a game that the Browns won in shocking 34-14 fashion. Given his age, this will probably be the New England quarterback’s last hurrah at FirstEnergy Stadium.
More important than that, however, is the notion that the Browns suddenly find themselves thrust into what will no doubt become the most high-profile game of the entire NFL season. An upset of the defending AFC East champions would go a long way toward washing away the bitter taste of a failed Johnny Manziel experiment, not to mention the sting of recent losing seasons.
