The Browns have been victimized in the past by the Pro Bowl runner, who has averaged 96.9 yards in eight career games against them. He has 775 rushing yards and three touchdowns for his career against the Browns. Last season, he rushed for a career-high 204 yards in a 24-10 win over Cleveland. That included a 67-yard run to tie a career high. Browns middle linebacker D'Qwell Jackson (Maryland) is healthy this season and will be pivotal to this matchup. He has 14 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and one fumble recovery. Jackson is a physical player, but could have issues matching Rice's mobility in the open field.
