Cleveland opens as heavy underdogs for Week 2 in Baltimore

Cleveland opens as heavy underdogs for Week 2 in Baltimore

Things don't get any easier for the rookie quarterback this Sunday, as he leads the Cleveland Browns into Baltimore for a date with a vaunted Ravens defense. No salesmen and no obligations! In the last five games versus the Browns, Flacco is average 267.4 passing yards per game. That includes a 7-2 record in home openers under Harbaugh. Their O/U trends are 1-5 in their last 6 games against AFC North, 5-1 in their last 6 games after gaining more than 150 rushing yards in the previous game, and 1-3-1 in their last 5 games against teams with a losing record.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien has already turned to rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson to inject some life into his offense and he did just that Thursday night in Cincinnati but they are hardly invincible come Oct. 15 followed by a visit from the Titans which takes us up to the trip to London against the Vikings Oct. 29.

And Trump said the country had "once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community". McMaster's comments come a day after the Kim Jong-un regime fired a ballistic missile over Japan .


The Ravens dominated the Bengals last week (20-0) while the Browns had a hard fought battle but ultimately lost against the Steelers (21-18). Cleveland held star Steelers running back LeVeon Bell to just 32 yards on 10 carries, but his Browns counterpart Isaiah Crowell put up just 33 yards on 17 carries. There is also a lot of buzz surrounding the Raven's RB Danny Woodhead and LB Za'Darius Smith as both are expected to be out this week due to injury.

It's no surprise to see the Ravens giving up more than a touchdown given the way both teams performed last week - but it's worth noting that these teams have been engaged in some tightly-contested games in recent years. Don't expect Joe to do much, and don't start him unless you have to.
