Browns vs. Raiders 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Matt Sullivan

The Browns will be looking to win two games in a row for the first time since the beginning of last season.

The Cleveland Browns can accomplish a few things for the first time on Sunday with a win over the Oakland Raiders. They can win two games in a row for the first time since Weeks 2 and 3 of the 2011 season, a benchmark that would be a small, though important, feat for Pat Shurmur's team. The Browns can also win their first road game of the season and their first since they defeated the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2 of last season.

The Raiders, meanwhile, are mired in a four-game losing streak with an average deficit of 22 points per game. Last week, Carson Palmer returned to Cincinnati in what turned out to be a pitiful game all around for the Raiders. Palmer went just 19-34 for 146 yards, a touchdown and a pick as the team's offense gained just 218 total yards.

In their last two home games, the Raiders have lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints, but have defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates and Jacksonville Jaguars in Oakland so far this year.

Sunday's game kicks off at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS.
