The Cleveland Browns take their show on the road tonight, heading into a hostile Baltimore Ravens stadium full of hope-filled Ravens fans. After beating division-leading Pittsburgh Steelers last week, the Ravens are on a roll and chances are Cleveland will be little more than a speed bump on their way to the division crown.
Cleveland head coach Hue Jackson is 0-1 against Baltimore, while Raven leader John Harbaugh is 15-2 against the Browns.
Cleveland’s offense is putting up a healthy 341 yards per game, but they’ve yet to translate that into the all-important W stat. The Browns are currently the only winless team in the league.
Chance are, nothing will happen tonight to change that. Brown’s rookie QB Cody Kessler has four touchdowns and 0 picks for 106.6 rating in the past four weeks. Over that span, he leads all rookies and ranks 5th in NFL with 67.5 comp. pct, while maintaining a 100+ passing rating in three of those games.
On the flip side, Raven linebacker Terrell Suggs has more sacks against Cleveland than any player in the league, with 16. A number he’s likely to build on tonight.
