This weekend we'll see the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens go against each other in an AFC North showdown to be played inside The Bank.

The 5-3 Browns will visit the 7-2 Ravens with the latter having beaten the former already in the first half of the season when the Flock invaded the Dawg home and came away with a victory.

In a recent interview on Up & Adams with host Kay Adams, Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett shared an interesting opinion on rival quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Joe Burrow.

When asked to compare the two, Garrett praised Jackson's skill set ("He can still rush for 150 and three touchdowns"), although he later picked the Bengals superstar as the best of the two.

"I'm taking down Lamar, but I’ll take Joe right now in terms of who’s got the nod over the other right now," Garrett told Adams.

Entering Week 10, Lamar Jackson is not only leading the race to win the 2023 NFL Most Valuable Player award, but he's also leading many statistical leaderboards and simply outperforming any and every other quarterback in the league.

Jackson leads all QBs in rushing yards with 440 as well as ranking sixth leaguewide in passer rating (100.8) according to ESPN. The Ravens QB has also completed nine touchdown passes against just three interceptions while adding five more touchdowns rushing the rock.

In comparison, Joe Burrow has put up a middling season leading the Bengals to a good-not-great 5-3 record to go with a personal stat line including a 90.6 passer rating (mediocre 16th-best) while completing passes for 12 TDs against four interceptions.

It's interesting that Garrett made his comments right ahead of a matchup against the Ravens, considering Jackson is playing MVP-level football and simply doesn't anything else to fire him up ahead of Week 10 in order to burn the Browns inside The Bank.
