The anticipated return of football season is ready for takeoff as the Cleveland Browns will travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to square off with the Eagles in an opening week, intra-conference contest.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with QB Carson Wentz getting the start for the Eagles.
Wentz is a rookie drafted out of North Dakota State and with this being his first ever NFL start, his proficiency along with offensive production will remain a mystery.
Likely, the Eagles will rest on their duo of running backs in Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles to foster the workload.
For Cleveland we will see RG3 at the helm for the Browns along with an influx of talented receivers in the Browns ranks via the NFL draft.
We have seen RG3 before as a starter for the Washington Redskins.
Initially, RG3 shocked and awed but a serious of injuries has weighted down the stardom of the emerging talent and Heisman winner. RG3 will have some weapons at his disposal.
Wide receiver Josh Gordon has been reinstated and though his role remains nebulous you cannot rule off any possibilities of the playmaker making an impact.
In addition to Gordon, the Browns also have Andrew Hawkins in their ranks, a prototypical slot man who is a possession receiver in every sense of the word.
The drafting of Rashad Higgins and Corey Coleman will make this crop potentially a very deadly crew.
Philadelphia’s defense was among the worst in the NFL in 2015.
Despite big signings and key acquisitions, the Eagles were acquiescent against the past. Simply put, the Eagles secondary was Swiss cheese on a hot summer day.
While Philadelphia may be projected to win this one big, there are many uncertainties that accompany the Eagles on both sides of the ball.
The main question offensively for Philadelphia will be at the QB position.
Projected starter Carson Wentz had a prolific career in college at North Dakota State but he nevertheless has not had played one snap in the NFL yet.
As we have known and seen, initial attrition is likely and thus Philadelphia’s offense will certainly be in question.

Likely this game will see many points on the board via special teams as both teams have excellent kickers. Furthermore, scoring will not be curtailed with the defenses we see taking the field.
Public action has driven this market down by four points emphasizing many perceive scoring being kept to the minimum.
Contrarily, fading public opinion is often a fruitful venture and given the fact both teams have talent on offense to take advantage of weak defenses, we will go the other way.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Cleveland 20 Philadelphia 23
Expect a lot of field goals being kicked in this one, ultimately serving as the difference maker between the winner and loser.
With a rookie QB making a start coupled with the nebulous circumstances surrounding how RG3 gels with the Cleveland offense and of course the specter of Josh Gordon, this game will likely be rather lackluster in terms of action.
