Defenses: Baltimore Ravens-10th
Ravens Keys to Victory:
In the first meeting, Baltimore had no answers for Browns RB Nick Chubb. Getting an interception or two from CB Brandon Carr or CB Marcus Peters would help. On offense, QB Lamar Jackson simply needs to keep up his MVP-worthy play. Jackson threw two interceptions in the first matchup and also missed a couple of throws he normally hits. Converting opportunities into points is critical for the Ravens’ offense, and K Justin Tucker will need to manage the tricky winds and potentially rough field conditions.
Browns Keys to Victory:
Controlling the game script is imperative. QB Baker Mayfield needs to consistently find the proper target and pick holes in the Ravens’ defense but without sacrificing touches for RB Nick Chubb . There will be opportunities for WR Jarvis Landry and TE David Njoku to attack down the field if the Ravens focus extra safety help on controlling Chubb, who is battling for the NFL rushing title. Cleveland’s defense will need to contain the Ravens’ Jackson by reliably getting him on the ground.
Matchup to watch according to USA Today Sports Weekly:
Ravens CB Marcus Peters vs. Browns WR Jarvis Landry
Matchup to watch according to Browns Backers of North Jersey:
Browns Defense vs Ravens QB Lamar Jackson
Lamar Jackson is a quarterback who can run and pass. The Browns defense need to contain him and watch to make sure he does not scramble for positive yards.
Who will win and why according to USA Today Sports Weekly:
Cleveland won the prior meeting in Baltimore in what now looks like one of the biggest upsets of the season, but the Ravens have won 10 in a row since. They keep burning toward the AFC’s No. 1 seed.
Who will win and why according to Browns Backers of North Jersey:
My thoughts are the Browns have mailed it in and do not want to play for Freddie Kitchens no matter what they say. This game could get real ugly, real fast. But alas, I still have faith that they can put it all together and win their last home game to possibly save Freddie's job (but I doubt it).
Who will win according
