Cleveland Browns (0-3) @ Baltimore Ravens (2-1)
The first game this season with the regular officials could have been a better matchup, but this game does have a rivalry involved. The Ravens, of course, were the Cleveland Browns at one point in time so a natural division rivalry was born from that. The Ravens are the class of the NFL and the Browns ...well, play in the NFL too. That's as nice as I can be to the Browns, a franchise that has been a laughingstock since their most recent inception. Ray Rice and the Baltimore offense played well enough to come back against a solid Patriots defense last week. The Browns are led by a rookies, quarterback Brandon Weeden and running back Trent Richardson. They are promising talents but at the moment they don't have enough to get by the Ravens. The Ravens might be beat up from their short week but they should beat up on the Browns in prime time. Baltimore 33, Cleveland 16
BEST OF MAXIM
Last week: 32 (+0)
In a year where up is down and down is up, one thing has remained constant, the Browns suck. Of the only 2 remaining 0-3 teams left in the NFL, the Browns are the one that isn’t even the slightest bit surprising. They are currently in the lead in the Blow for Barkley sweepstakes and should remain on the pole throughout the season.

You have got to give the Cleveland Browns credit...they made it close and took it down to the final seconds of the game... And this was Brandon Weeden's best game so far as a rookie quarterback in the NFL, despite incessant pressure from the Ravens' pass rush...But in the end, the Ravens wore down the 0-4 Browns, winning by the margin of a Cary Williams interception pick...

The Baltimore Ravens played on Monday night, Sunday night and Thursday night. They endured four games in 18 days, the last three of which were decided in the final minute.
And then, on the 19th day, the Ravens rested.
After holding on to beat winless Cleveland 23-16 Thursday night, the Ravens (3-1) are off until Monday.
Baltimore came in as 13-point favorites over the Browns,...
On the opening drive of the second half, quarterback Joe Flacco drove the Ravens’ offense 89 yards for a touchdown.
Flacco found Anquan Boldin three times and then finished off the drive himself with a 1-yard touchdown run.
The Ravens lead the Browns 16-7 in the third quarter.
The NFL didn't do the Baltimore Ravens any favors by having them play four times over an 18-day span, including three night games.
In what might be perceived as a conciliatory gesture, the schedule-maker enabled the Ravens to conclude that difficult stretch at home Thursday night against the winless Cleveland Browns.
Baltimore (2-1) has won 12 straight at home, the longest...

Home field disadvantage: “Can it happen here? As in, “Can it happen in Cleveland?” And it pains me to write this, but will new the Cleveland Browns Stadium ever be like...
We’re 30 minutes of gametime into the return of the real refs and it’s already a refreshing return to normalcy. The game moves at better than glacial pace. Why, it may even end before 1 a.m. Fights after the play are promptly broken up without sidelines clearing and extended delays. The only derps so far belong where they should: with the Browns offense.
The Cleveland defense...
BALTIMORE - Ravens cornerback Cary Williams took his first career interception 63 yards for a touchdown, which helped catapult his team to a 23-16 win over Cleveland Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium. But it wasn't over until a pass by Cleveland's Brandon Weeden from the Ravens' 18-yard fell incomplete on the game's final play. Williams' key play came...
