The Bills hit the road for a Week 3 matchup against the Browns, who are looking to avoid an 0-3 hole.
The Cleveland Browns return home on Sunday for a Week 3 clash with their Lake Erie neighbor, the Buffalo Bills. The Browns enter Sunday as one of six winless teams in the NFL, while the Bills are coming off a beatdown of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Unofficially, this has become an annual date on the schedule with both teams consistently finishing in the cellar of their respective AFC divisions.
The game will feature two of the most explosive backs from Week 2 in Buffalo's C.J. Spiller and Cleveland's Trent Richardson. Spiller leads the league in rushing and was dominant against the Chiefs, rushing for 123 yards and two touchdowns. He's averaging an astounding 10.1 yards per carry through his first two games. Richardson rebounded from his rough debut and put on a show in Cincinnati, converting two highlight touchdowns that displayed his speed and power.
Cleveland is desperate for a win and head coach Pat Shurmur knows his team must avoid an 0-3 hole. Buffalo, meanwhile, has an opportunity to jump into first in the AFC East, where all four teams are 1-1. Buffalo is favored by a field goal. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET at Cleveland Browns Stadium, and CBS will have the broadcast.
