The Cleveland Browns come into the Baltimore Ravens game getting just 3-1/2 points from the odds makers. The Browns are getting some respect from the odds makers even though the team only has 2 wins on the season. The Cleveland Browns have lost to the Baltimore Ravens since they returned to the NFL in 1999. The Browns are very optimistic about their chances of a win this Sunday against the Ravens. The team needs to come out quick and put some points on the board. The Cleveland defense has to show up in full force in this game to give the Browns offense a chance.
The Browns played the Ravens tough in their first meeting this season. The Browns have to set the tempo and avoid 3 and outs in the game. Cleveland has to control the tempo of the game and they have to be able to convert in critical situations. If the Browns cannot control the tempo of the game and the Ravens offense takes over the Cleveland Defense has to find a way to apply pressure to Flacco. If they can keep the pressure up throughout the game, they might have a chance to come away with a win.
If The Cleveland Browns can get their third win on the season against the Baltimore Ravens, this city will go nuts. The Browns have not had a good season since head Coach Pat Shurmur took over as the teams head coach. Shurmur has had his problems with his play calling that has been very suspect to say the least. The Ravens will probably apply pressure to Weeden as well. Even though Ray Lewis is out of the Baltimore line up, the Ravens still have plenty of fire power in the middle to keep the Browns offensive line busy. If the Cleveland Browns line can give Weeden the time he needs to get completions this one could get interesting.
