The Browns 29-year-old rookie is going to be thrown into the fire this weekend as the Cleveland Browns take on a pissed off Baltimore Ravens defense. The Ravens are going to be well rested this week, the team is coming off their bye week and it will be a much different defense Weeden faces in game two of the Baltimore-Cleveland series. The Browns will be facing a team that still has hard feelings about losing their last game 43-13. The Browns will face a team that plans on coming out a making a statement this week.
Since Harbaugh took over the head coaching job in 2008 the Ravens have always bounced back with a win after a loss this bad. The Browns are going to have to have a great performance from Brandon Weeden and the Browns defense. In the first game the Cleveland Browns were able to hang with the Ravens fairly well. The Ravens played 3 games over a 18 day period and they were playing on a Thursday night following a Sunday game.
This time the Browns will face a much rested Ravens team who are out to prove a point. The Browns have to do tow things to compete with Baltimore this week. They have to protect Brandon Weeden and they have to protect the football. If Cleveland can do both and the Browns defense plays the way they did in game one, who knows? Maybe the Cleveland Browns can pull off what has been the impossible. Maybe they just might win a game against the Ravens…. I look for the Baltimore Ravens to be a much different team this time around, The Cleveland Browns had better be on their toes this Sunday. It is going to be a battle.
