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.

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.
