When the Browns signed Campbell this summer, many thought he could beat-out Weeden for the starting job. He was 4-2 with a 84.2 QB rating as a starter in 2011 for the Oakland Raiders. He was injured in a game vs the Browns and missed final 10 games.

For his career, he’s 31-40 as a starter, a 82.5 rating. Last season, he was a backup for the Chicago Bears and made one start in a 32-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He was 14/22 passing for only 107 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

Campbell will be the 20th different quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999. He draws the difficult task of facing the league’s best pass-rushing team, as the Chiefs lead the league with 35 sacks.
