Cleveland has one of the tougher defenses in the NFL, but their offense is going to sabotage their good efforts and Big Ben is one of the best at extending plays.

Newton is a game-time decision. Even if he plays, your backup QB is probably a better option this week.

- Austin Lee, FootballGuys

 
*Falling Star* - It is looking more likely that Newton will sit Week 1. If he does, his replacement will be Derek Anderson. Either way, the fragility of the decision making warrants a DO-NOT-START for CN. If he does start there is still a great chance he is pulled if the game gets out of hand or he is hit hard. Not worth the risk.

Big Ben usually kills the Browns but their D is borderline elite these days, so I doubt he goes off in week 1.

Cam is banged up and the Bucs aren't slouches but he's still too explosive to count out here.

Playing a revitalized D, Newton will wear flak jacket.
