On Sunday September 14th, the city of Cleveland will be hosting at FirstEnergy Stadium the clash between New Orleans Saints and the home team Cleveland Browns.
Cleveland 2014 preseason was no more than a big disappointment as the team suffered three consecutive losses to the Lions, the Redskins and the Rams. This losing streak was extended during the first week of NFL regular season when Cleveland suffered a crash against Pittsburgh for a final score of 27 – 30.
Some of the most recent news on the Browns are on Wide receiver Josh Gordon as he could see his one year-long suspension for marijuana use reduced due to a new scheme proposal on socially accepted drugs. Representatives for all NFL 32 teams will discuss the new proposal on Friday and might vote on it and if the result comes out positive then Gordon and other suspended players could have their penalties decreased.

On the other hand, New Orleans 2014 preseason was quite successful as the team managed to win their first three consecutive games, but lost their closing preseason game to the Ravens. And also suffered an unexpected loss to Atlanta Falcons during WEEK 1 of the NFL regular season.
A few key factors to watch for the clash between New Orleans and Cleveland are:
Offense – It’s almost sickening to wonder how bad the game would have went if the Saints offense weren’t clicking on all cylinders.
Defense – How does this unit response from Week One’s debacle? The Saints allowed nearly 600 yards of total offense to the Falcons. In this game, we are looking for a more aggressive start from the defense, which should result in some quarterback pressures, hits, and ultimately sacks.
Tackle, Tackle, Tackle – Tackling 101
It had to be the most frustrating game in recent memory for the New Orleans Saints and their fans. We have never seen so many missed tackles, and it was everyone. For next Sunday, the Saints face two young and talented running backs, Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. Each of these backs averaged over 6 yards/carry.

St. Louis Rams +5.5 37o
Tampa Bay Bucs -5.5 37u
Here is a quick game preview: It’s tough to call the second game of the season a “must-win” situation. But that might not be far off what the St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are facing this week.
Both teams are coming off embarrassing losses that could set the tone for disastrous seasons. But a victory in Week 2 could save a season — at least for the moment.
We expect the Rams to be more competitive this week, so long as they have veteran quarterback Shaun Hill back from a quad injury while the Bucs disappointed in Week 1 against a backup quarterback, and either way, they’re going to see another this week against the Rams. source: www.ESPN.com
