The Cleveland Browns play the next most important game of the season, with Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots on deck in Week 10.
With the divisional and wild card standings jumbled, every game counts for the Browns, who will probably need 11 wins to make the playoffs.
It’s going to be a dog fight and the schedule is unrelenting.
