While battling a COVID-19 outbreak that benched several starters, the Browns will host the Raiders for a rescheduled matchup on Monday night.
Although the matchup was initially scheduled as the league’s first Saturday game of the season, the NFL announced Friday that it was one of several matchups that were postponed over the weekend. The Browns (7-6) will host the battle against the Raiders (6-7) as they fight to stay in the AFC playoff race.
The Browns are planning on starting quarterback Nick Mullens after both Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum landed on the COVID-19 list this week. The outbreak in Cleveland also put tight end Austin Hooper and wide receiver Jarvis Landry on the list, and they’re not expected to be active for the Monday night matchup, either.
The Browns will also be without head coach Kevin Stefanski.

Derek Carr and connected with wide receiver Hunter Renfrow for 117 yards with a touchdown during the 48-9 loss to the Chiefs, and the duo is expected to light up the Raiders’ offense.
