Here are 10 facts and stats every Ravens fan should know ahead of today's matchup. Hurry up, because you're running out of time to memorize these golden nuggets!
1. Baltimore leads the all-time series against the Browns, 35-13
Both franchises have met 48 times throughout their existence with the first matchup taking place in 1999 when your superheroes beat Cleveland 17-10. The last matchup, however, ended in a low-scoring 13-3 win by the Browns last December.
This season will mark the 49th (Week 4) and 50th (Week 10) meeting between both franchises and the Browns are not even close to catching Baltimore in the all-time rivalry between them.
This is always a heated matchup because of the linked story of the Browns and the Ravens. Simply put, the (original) Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens in 1996, leaving Cleveland without a team.
The (current) Browns were brought back to life as a "new" franchise in 1999 via expansion draft after missing the 1996, 1997, and 1998 seasons entirely and having to do with an entirely new roster comprised out of scrubs while the Ravens (pretty much still the FrankenBrownVens) went on to win the 2000 Super Bowl.
