Jerome Boger is the referee for the game.
As of Thursday the line on the game from Sports Betting via Yahoo Sports has the Patriots at MINUS 11.5. The over/under is 44.5.
My Prediction is Patriots 27, Browns, 21. Take the points (Browns) and take the over. I am 3-9 against the spread and 6 of 12 on calling the over/under in 2013.
The Patriots are reporting the game as a sell out. It is the 214th consecutive sell out dating back to the 1994 season opener. The record includes preseason, regular season and playoff games.
