Browns Schedule 2012: Cleveland Travels To Giants In Week 5, Will Not Open In AFC North, According To Reports

We're a little over an hour away from the official schedule release for the 2012 NFL season, and already little details are trickling out. According to reports, the Browns will not be opening the season in the division, with the Bengals and Ravens slated to play in the first Monday Night Football game. Joe Reedy of the The Cincinnati Enquirer has the report:

WNST.net and Radio out of Baltimore is reporting that the Ravens will host the Bengals on Monday Night Football to open the regular season.

With the Ravens and Bengals in action, that leaves the Steelers open. But according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Ben Roethlisberger and company will start the season on the road against the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning.

So the Browns will be playing outside the AFC North to start the year, but we know it won't be against the New York Giants, who play in the season kick-off game on Wednesday, September 5th against the Dallas Cowboys. According to reports, the Browns will travel to New York to face the defending Super Bowl champs for Week 5, which is scheduled for Sunday, October 7th.
