The Cleveland Browns have become appointment television.
The NFL announced its full regular-season schedule Wednesday night, and the Browns will be showcased with four prime-time telecasts.
Our 2019 schedule features FOUR primetime games this season — the most for our franchise since 2008

“It’s great to get the schedule but honestly it really doesn’t matter where the games fall. It’s our job to be ready, regardless of when or what time we play,” Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said in a statement. “We know our fans are very excited about the season and we know they will carry that excitement into the season opener. Right now, our focus must be on ourselves and not on any other team. For us, it’s about coming to work every day, intent on improvement.”
It won’t take long for Cleveland to be featured in one of the top telecasts. In Week 2, the team will travel to New York to face the Jets for that week’s Monday Night Football game.
The last time Cleveland was featured in a Monday night game was in a Nov. 30, 2015, loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
With all the hype, comes a ticket hike.
The Browns fans wanted a good team, and now they have one, at least on paper.
But guess what, your ticket prices are going to more than double…
On the day the 2018 NFL schedule was released, the median cost of a Browns’ ticket was $62; as of 8:50 PM ET Wednesday, the median cost of a Browns’ ticket was $131, more than double, per @VividSeats.

The Browns finished the 2018 season 7-8-1 after firing coach Hue Jackson, but the franchise hasn’t won its division since the 1989 season.
Hopefully their fans won’t get ripped off this season.
At those ticket prices, they at least better make the playoffs.
