According to an NFL master schedule for the 2012 regular season hurtling over the Internet, the Browns would have a prime-time game at home and one on the road.
The schedule, which has not been authorized by the league, shows the Browns hosting the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night, Sept. 27, at 8:20 p.m. and playing the Eagles in Philadelphia on Monday night, Nov. 5, at 8:30 p.m.
The Ravens game would be part of the new, full-season package of Thursday night games on NFL Network. The Eagles game would mark the Browns’ first appearance on “Monday Night Football” on ESPN since the 2009 season. The real schedule calls for the Browns to play the Eagles in Cleveland.
So don’t write the dates in ink.
“It’s bogus. We do not have a schedule yet,” Greg Aiello, NFL spokesman, wrote in an email reply.
There is no date set for the release of the official 2012 schedule. It typically has been released prior to the draft, which kicks off this year on April 26.
