The Baltimore Ravens have shown under John Harbaugh they never stay down for very long.
They've also shown a knack for beating the Cleveland Browns.
Coming off their bye week following the franchise's worst loss in five years, the Ravens try to sweep the season series from their AFC North rival for the fifth straight year Sunday when they visit a Browns team seeking its third win in four games.
The first-place Ravens (5-2) have had plenty of time to mull over a 43-13 loss to Houston on Oct. 21, the franchise's worst setback since a 31-point loss at Pittsburgh in 2007. The loss to the Texans was the fourth defeat of 20 points or more since Harbaugh took over in 2008, and in each previous instance, Baltimore bounced back with a win.
"You can't achieve anything without going through some adversity," Harbaugh said. "So, the opportunity that is presented to us now is an opportunity to get better - to become whatever it is we're going to become."

The Baltimore Sun had a pretty funny piece on Wednesday about a college professor who shares the same name as Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta. The column detailed all the times the professor was mistakenly contacted instead of the football player. Pitta, who is a marketing professor at the University of Baltimore, believes there are only three Dennis Pittas in the country — himself...
The Baltimore Ravens (5-2) lead the AFC North by one game over the Pittsburgh Steelers. If they plan to stay there many corrections need to be made and fast. Who would have thought that playing the Cleveland Browns in November would be a meaningful game, but with such a slim margin for error, the Ravens can’t take any game lightly.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was a guest on Around the League on the NFL Network and was asked to describe the loss of the linebacker Ray Lewis.
“There’s no word, really, in the English dictionary that can describe how important this man is to this team and this city,” Suggs said.”Losing him was catastrophic, and it’s going to be hard to fill that void.”...
The Baltimore Ravens are hitting the road this Sunday and traveling to Cleveland to take on their AFC North division rival, the Browns. There will be a lot of things to look for in the game but I have narrowed the list down a bit to the key matchups to watch for.
Joe Flacco/Cam Cameron vs the road – It is unfortunate that every week that places the Ravens on the road, I have...
Last we heard from the Ravens, they were getting thumped 43-13 by the Texans. That was on Oct. 21, before the Week 8 bye. Sunday afternoon, the Ravens will still be on the road and they will be taking on a divisional opponent.
The Ravens will take the field in Cleveland against the Browns and trying to go 3-0 in the division. If they win, it will also be their 11th consecutive win...
Not in a long time can I remember this much talk between teams heading into a game as there has been leading up to this Sunday’s match-up between the Browns and Ravens. Trent Richardson is going to exchange jerseys with Ray Rice. The Browns think they’re a different team than the one that lost on Thursday night. Trent Richardson is the hardest player to tackle in the league according...
So my man Grinda is back with his weekly picks. He went 5-0 last week, and 4-1 the week before. What I am saying is that there is free money to be had...Baltimore Ravens –4(-105) @ Cleveland BrownsBaltimore will roll this week. I think this is a sure bet because Jim Harbaugh is one of the better coaches in the league, and with an extra week of preparation, he will be able to facilitate...
