After a dominant victory against Seattle last weekend, the Ravens (7-2) take on another tough opponent in the Cleveland Browns (5-3).
The Browns had a great win of their own last weekend, defeating the lowly Arizona Cardinals 27-0 before visiting The Bank in Baltimore this upcoming weekend.
Here are three bold predictions for Round 2 of this divisional matchup between the Ravens and the Browns.
1. Odafe Oweh has a career day
Odafe Oweh has had some inconsistencies in the early portion of his career. He had a great rookie season, finishing with five sacks and three forced fumbles in 2021.
Many fans, including myself, thought Oweh would break out in his 2022 campaign. That may not have happened, but the 2023 version of Odafe Oweh looks like the best we've seen.
Oweh may only have two sacks this season, but he's been extremely disruptive and has been living in the backfield ever since returning from injury in Week 7.
Last week against Seattle, Oweh recorded a sack and a tackle for loss and was routinely wrecking shop for the Ravens defense. I think this continues this week in a favorable matchup against the Browns.
Jedrick Wills Jr. (the Browns starting Left Tackle) was just placed on Injured Reserve, meaning the Browns will be starting Dawand Jones and James Hudson III at their tackle positions this week. Jones has started seven of the Browns' eight games this season due to a Jack Conklin season-ending injury, but Hudson III has yet to start a game this season, and he's done so just seven times in his three-year career.
I think Odafe Oweh will take advantage of this matchup and record his first multi-sack game of his career.
