The Browns (3-5) will never get anywhere unless they can stop the Ravens (3-4), who have beaten them 11 times in a row.
While Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is having a tough year, he always plays his best against Cleveland. Torrey Smith is one of the best receivers in the league, and he will challenge Joe Haden throughout the game.
Browns quarterback Jason Campbell was only sacked once last week by the fearsome Kansas City Chiefs defense, and if he can avoid Terrell Suggs and friends this week, the Browns might have a chance.
The key to the Browns offense is to establish the run, so the Ravens don’t blitz the house against Campbell on every down.
Also, Greg Little and Davone Bess have to catch the ball and make something happen. They have both underachieved this year. The Browns would have a dangerous group of receivers if Little and Bess could join Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron as legitimate threats.
Finally, the Browns defense has to build on last week’s second-half performance against Kansas City. After getting torched by the Chiefs for 281 yards in the first half, the Browns defense stiffened and gave up just 50 yards in the second half.
Cleveland needs a strong team effort for the entire game to break their losing streak against the Ravens.
If they can knock off Baltimore, the Browns would enter the bye week with a 2-1 division record leading into games against the Bengals and the vulnerable Steelers.
