Cleveland Browns head to Baltimore to face Ravens: Game preview

Hue Jackson: DeShone Kizer 'gives us hope'

Unfortunately for Cleveland, the Steelers came out on top, but the Brown put up more of a fight than anticipated losing their season opener, 21-18. Under head coach John Harbaugh, the Ravens are 16-2 against the Browns, including 8-1 at home, and are 14-2 in September home games. It was especially true in the second half, considering quarterback Joe Flacco only threw four times and completed none of them while the offense continued to eat up the clock on the ground. "It doesn't really matter to me". So we've just got to make sure that we gang-tackle. Now, he'll need to put up an even better performance against another divisional rival in the Baltimore Ravens. Newsome went on to a Hall of Fame career with the Browns, finishing with 662 catches for 7,980 yards - still Browns franchise records - and 47 touchdowns. Terrance West led the Baltimore running game on his 19 carries, 80 yards and a score, while Jeremy Maclin had two receptions for 56 yards and a TD. It was the most carries by the Ravens since December 30, 2012, when they carried 46 times for 206 yards against Cincinnati. But in a second meeting with the Ravens on November 10, the 24-year-old rushed for only 23 yards on nine attempts.

It's no surprise to see the Ravens giving up more than a touchdown given the way both teams performed last week - but it's worth noting that these teams have been engaged in some tightly-contested games in recent years.
