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.

Big Ben usually kills the Browns but their D is borderline elite these days, so I doubt he goes off in week 1.
Detroit isn't the worst matchup but Eli is on the road and he's looked dreadful. If he suddenly turns it on, few will have seen it coming.
