Cleveland Browns 2021 schedule will include Chiefs, Packers and possibly a 17th game – cleveland.com

CLEVELAND, Ohio – With the 2020 regular season concluded, we now know which teams the Browns will play in 2021.

The league’s schedule rotation matches the AFC North with the AFC West and NFC North next season. The Browns’ third-place division finish means they will also face third-place teams in the AFC East and AFC South.

The NFL is expected to release its full week-by-week schedule in mid-April.

Also, the addition of a 17th regular-season game was approved as part of the league’s new labor agreement. The league can add the extra game any time between 2021 and 2023, and NFL.com reported that the plan is to start in 2021.

MMQB’s Albert Breer reported that crossover rotation for the 17th game would match the AFC North against the NFC West in 2021. The third-place Browns would play the third-place Cardinals in that scenario.

However, the league has yet to announce how the 17th game will be added.

Here are the Browns’ 2021 home and away matchups, based on existing schedule rotations:
