Week 2 has the Cleveland Browns (0-0-1) coming to the Big Easy to take on the New Orleans Saints (0-1). It’s an eerie feeling approaching the game, as Sean Payton’s squad was shocked in Week 1 by the Buccaneers to get a bad 48-40 loss at home. The Browns haven’t won a game since Christmas Even in the 2016 season, when they beat the then San Diego Chargers 20-17.

The Browns hold the all-time series advantage 13-4, having won the last two matchups in 2010 and 2014. The Saints are just 2-8 at home against Cleveland, dating back to 1967. They’re lone wins came in 1987 and 1990, and the Browns didn’t come back to New Orleans until 1999. The names Tim Couch and Kevin Johnson may induce fits of rage.

Can the Saints avoid their fifth straight 0-2 start?
