Ravens. Some Browns fans think the Ravens defense is old and slowing down. The fact is they are coming off one of the teams biggest losses of the season. I look for Ed Reed the Ravens safety to have a few things to say about Gordon running down the middle of the field wide open. Reed may even bait Brandon Weeden into some bad decisions. The Browns were on the look out for Reed in their first meeting with the Ravens, Weeden is well aware of the Ravens safeties presence on the field.
The Browns may wan to wait until the second half to try their luck against the Baltimore secondary when it comes to the long ball. If the Ravens defense does slow down, that would be the perfect time to try the long hook up. Cleveland may want to try the running game with Ray Lewis missing in the middle of the field. Maybe the Browns can bust loose a couple of runs to wear the Ravens defense down a little quicker in the game.
What ever the case is this is going to be a tough game for the Cleveland Browns. We all know Cleveland has had a tough time against the Ravens since the Browns returned to the NFL and this could be the one game the Browns come into their own. If Gordon and Weeden can hook up for a couple of long plays it will be interesting to see if the Ravens defense has an answer. I guess we will see this Sunday when the Cleveland Browns take on the Baltimore Ravens in their second meeting of the 2012 season.
