Not quite so easy? Identifying the potential trap games against what appear to be the weaker opponents the Browns will face this season.
As a 5-11 team that beat both the Saints and the Patriots last season, the Browns should be well aware that sometimes weaker opponents can surprise you. They wound up on the right end of that equation twice last year. This season, there are as many as six games where, if they aren't careful, they could end up on the wrong end of it.
Of course, the chances that the Browns underestimate an opponent are less than the chances teams like the ones who did it to them last year are. Still, potential unexpected pitfalls are best identified and planned for well ahead of time. Possibly cursed as we are, we should know better than anyone that you can never be too careful.
Thus, following are six potential trap games for the Browns this season.
