The Ravens will be playing their fourth game in 17 days, and third primetime game in their first four Thursday night when they take on the division rival Browns.
Cleveland is winless and has a rookie quarterback and running back combination in the backfield.
The winless part won’t change for Cleveland because the Ravens’ defense will harass Brandon Weeden into mistakes. Weeden has a 60.7 quarterback rating with three touchdowns and six interceptions.
Joe Flacco, on the other hand, has the second most yards passing in the NFL (913) and a 101.1 rating.
This is the game the defense gets untracked and leads the Ravens to a blowout.
The Ravens will win their 13th consecutive home game and this one will be 27-10.

“We battled, we came up short and we fought our [tails] off.” — Brandon Weeden
“He battled.” — Pat Shurmur on Weeden
“Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and his young, inexperienced receivers grew up a lot in Baltimore Thursday night, making the Ravens sweat it out until the last play of the game when they had a chance to tie it.” — Mary Kay Cabot
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little (second in drops last season) continued his catching problems last night against the Baltimore Ravens, dropping a total of five catches, including a great Brandon Weeden would-be-touchdown pass that he had right in his hands.
“My job is just to beat the guy and get through the middle of the field,” Little said. “[Weeden] moved...
Season 3, Episode 22 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd I start by giving our thoughts on the Baltimore Ravens win over the Cleveland Browns Thursday night. We give our thoughts on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and the way the Ravens are really stretching the field vertically this year.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are on a bye this week, but there is still plenty...
The 0-3 Browns will return to primetime with a visit to Baltimore to take on the 2-1 Ravens.
This game will be the first following the end of the NFL referee lockout, with real referees on tap to officiate tonight. So this means no more complaints, no matter how valid, can be attributed to poor officiating!
After a terrible performance in Week 1, it looked like...
Cornerback Cary Williams had been having a rough couple games until now. Williams intercepted rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown.
The pick was Williams’ first in his career.
The Ravens now lead the Browns 23-10 heading to the fourth quarter.
A few dropped passes, none no bigger than Greg Little's drop late in the fourth quarter hamper the Browns once again.
Rookie QB Brandon Weeden pushes the Baltimore Ravens to the edge as rushing attack abandoned.
With the NFL reaching an agreement with the officials to return to refereeing the league, it has kind of gotten lost in the shuffle that there is an actual game tonight. And at first glance, you’d think any match up consisting of the Ravens, who look like rue Super Bowl contenders in the early going, facing off against the hapless Cleveland Browns would be a pushover. But there...
Tonight had such great potential, what with replacement refs and the Cleveland Browns on the field at the same time. But, no, the NFL and the real refs just had to settle their squabbles in time for tonight. After three weeks of chaotic deliberations of the rule book, the real refs will take the field. I feel a bit robbed. I was looking forward to a team being granted four timeouts...

The real refs are much better
Great to see a smooth game played. The product may not have been the best, but at least the refs didn’t add an additional hour and half to the game with constant meetings, reviews and overall ***********. Welcome back, refs. Here’s to hoping Ed Hochuli kept in shape over the lockout.
There was noticeably less Cee Lo last night
Our prayers were all...
The NFL is a multibillion dollar organization that stresses the integrity and safety of their game. I know this horse has been beaten many times over the past couple weeks, but the NFL is doing the fans, players, coaches and itself a disservice by continuing to use replacement officials. I am not blaming the replacement officials by no mean, I agree with Brett in his previous...
