The Ravens should be able to handle the Browns with relative ease tonight, but to do so here are the things they must do.
1. Don’t turn the ball over- The Ravens suffered three shocking upset losses last year and they turned the ball over at least twice in each contest. The Ravens can’t afford to lose the turnover battle in any game.
2. Don’t force passes- Flacco had a habit of forcing bad throws last year. tonight he just needs to sit back and take what the defense give him. The Browns secondary is missing its best player so there will be holes in the coverage. I have a feeling we will see more passes than one would expect tonight, They just need to be good passes.
3. Focus on Richardson, but don’t sleep on Weeden- The Browns biggest threat on offense is obviously their 3rd overall pick RB Trent Richardson. That said, Weeden was also a first round pick and his talent justifies that. The Ravens D needs to handle Richardson first and foremost, but Weeden can be dangerous if they dare him to beat them.
