The Ravens (2-1) and the Browns (2-1) are sharing the lead of the AFC North with the Steelers and have an extraordinary opportunity to leave the other one biting the dust this weekend as they will face each other inside the Dawg Pound in Cleveland.
The main storyline is obvious here: Todd Monken's new offense against the no. 1 ranked defense in the NFL. Huge stakes, folks. And hey, it's not that even if these two squads were playing mediocre and horrible football this game wouldn't already be heated up with the years-long rivalry between Cleveland and Baltimore.
The Ravens will need to navigate a plethora of injuries once more, but that's no excuse for the Flock. Baltimore has the chance to put some distance between them and the third-best team in the division, so they need to arrive in Ohio and snatch a victory.
As we count down to kick-off on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET, here's a roundup of what a few Baltimore Ravens players have said in the lead-up to the fourth game of the season. Get ready to be fired up!
