Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns: 3 predictions for Sunday
The Ravens take on the Cleveland Browns this Sunday. This road test will be more challenging than usual:
There is an excitement in Cleveland that hasn’t been there in the Baltimore Ravens previous encounters with the Browns. Baker Mayfield has given the Browns hope. The Browns have gone through quarterbacks more than any team in the NFL. From Tim Couch to Johnny Manziel and DeShone Kizer, the quarterback position has been the Browns’ nightmare. Mayfield is one of the most confident rookie passers in recent memory. He delivered the Browns their first win coming in for Tyrod Taylor against the New York Jets. Mayfield led the Browns to an overtime period against the Oakland Raiders, but the Browns are coming off a stinging loss.
The Ravens are coming into the week on a high note. They just pulverized their rivals from Pittsburgh in a convincing 26-14 win. Baltimore is now getting credit as one of the best teams in the National Football League. The offense is a huge part of the Ravens’ success but the defense is dominating their opponents. It’s a weird time for the Ravens, when the offense and defense are clicking at the same time.
This game has much more intrigue than it normally does. The Ravens have had some slip ups against the Browns, but for the most part have dominated this rivalry. Flacco, who is on a roll, has traditionally had his best games against the Browns. This will be the best Browns team that Flacco and company have faced. Let’s get into the predictions:
