EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Cleveland Browns are looking to bounce back from last week's loss and shine under prime time lights for the second week in a row as they take on the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football.
Cleveland, at 9-4, is hot in the race for a postseason and continues to work towards solidifying a playoff birth for the first time since 2002.
Sunday night's game was a result of the NFL's flexible schedule, marking the first time since the prime time flexible scheduling was implemented in 2006 that Cleveland was flexed into a prime time game. It will also be a return several members of the Giants organization.
With Giants' offensive coordinator Jason Garrett testing positive for COVID-19, tight ends coach and former head coach of the Browns Freddie Kitchens will take over as the team's play caller. Former Browns quarterback Colt McCoy, who is New York's backup, will get the start Sunday night as Daniel Jones is sidelined with hamstring and ankle injuries. Other players with something to prove against their former teams include Jabrill Peppers, Kevin Zeitler and Jabaal Sheard for the Giants and Olivier Vernon, B.J. Goodson and Tae Davis for the Browns.
