One thing Jason Campbell allows the Browns to do is throw the deep ball, and there is nothing that quiets a crowd quite like a long deep ball early on. Safety Reggie Nelson will also have to keep track of budding tight end Jordan Cameron who caught 10 passes for 91 yards and a TD in the first matchup this year.

He will have to keep his wits about him and not bite on a play fake, or flee flicker, and stay deep in coverage.  The normally solid safety has been up and down at times this year and could be still dealing with nagging injuries from earlier in the season.
