Tom Brady returns from his four-game suspension to lead the New England Patriots against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday.

The Patriots are coming off their first loss of the season after being shut out by the Buffalo Bills 16–0. Backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett started the game as Jimmy Garrapolo was still sidelined with a shoulder injury.  The team managed just 277 total yards against a surprising Bills defense and were held to just 1 for 12 on third downs. Brady is expected to start after not practicing with the team in the past 30 days due to his suspension for his role in the Deflategate scandal.

The Browns are still seeking their first win of the season. Cleveland returned from a 14–0 deficit but turned the ball over and lost 31–20 on the road. Quarterback Cody Kessler finished the day 28 of 40 passing for 223 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
