The Browns lost a tough one down in Cincy last week. Since then, Ryan Pontbriand was cut, Josh Cribbs voiced his displeasure with losing, and the Baltimore Ravens arrived in Cleveland looking to extend their record to 9-3. If Pat Shurmur’s group is able to respond to last week’s loss by getting into the win column today, they will need to play their best game of the season to date.
Las Vegas has the Ravens favored on the road by seven points. They intend to blitz Colt McCoy all afternoon and into the early Cleveland evening. It would be pretty encouraging if Peyton Hillis showed up today with one of those games he had last season. Beyond that, the other things that will have to happen in order for the Browns to come out on top were previously identified both here and here.
