Baltimore Ravens top 3 concerns against Cleveland Browns
3. The Browns have a really balanced attack:
Mayfield may be what has sparked the Browns, but they have a balanced attack. Nick Chubb has become a very productive running back in his rookie campaign. Chubb is 28 yards away from a 1,000 yard season and he is averaging 5.3 yards per carry. As a team, the Browns average 4.6 yards per run. The running game is very important to Cleveland. If the Ravens cannot make the Browns one dimensional, this game will be a fight.
The Browns have a balanced array of weapons in their passing game. Jarvis Landry is a very reliable receiver who just gets open. He has 76 receptions for 874 yards and three touchdowns this year. Antonio Callaway is such an exciting young wide receiver and his speed makes him a big play weapon. The worst news for the Ravens is that the Browns have a very athletic tight end in David Njoku. The biggest weakness of the Ravens’ pass defense is their inability to cover the tight end.
The Browns can beat you a lot of different ways (That’s a sentence that hasn’t been able to be written for a long time). Their rookie quarterback is the story and the biggest reason for their re-energized outlook. That being said, the Browns have play-makers around Mayfield. The Browns aren’t going to be a playoff team but it does feel like they are building towards next year. The Ravens need this win. They have a great chance to get it, but it won’t be given to them.
