We really hate the idea of playing relatively square plays, but we think that we are going to make one in this game between the Ravens and the Browns. Had this game been played in Week 1, the Ravens would have been at least eight point favorites, and the line might have been a lot more. We aren’t really so sure how good Baltimore really is yet at this point, knowing that the one road game against the Broncos was probably as tough of a task as anyone could have had in the league at this point. However, we know what the Browns are bringing to the table, and we know that it isn’t all that good, especially at the quarterback position.
QB Brandon Weeden was picked off three times last week against the Dolphins, and he was sacked six times, many of which were likely his fault. He put the ball in the air 53 times, which isn’t going to get the job done, especially when the best receiver that you have is WR Davone Bess. WR Travis Benjamin is amongst the receivers that are hurting for this Cleveland team, and no one can really stretch the field until WR Josh Gordon comes back from his suspension. For as much as we really think that Cleveland has a better team this season than it did in years past, and for as much as we really don’t think that Baltimore is that good of a team, and even for as square as the Ravens are, we have to back them on Sunday until Weeden and the gang can prove that they can move the ball up and down the field.
