The Cleveland Browns make a visit to The Nest for the Ravens first divisional game in Week 3. While it is easy to denounce the Browns with a new coach, new quarterback and a shaky offensive line, there are high expectations for the Ravens' defense to have a complete performance.
CC's offensive schemes have outshined the defense in the first two weeks of the regular season and should continue to do the same against the League's 25th rated defense. RB's Ray Rice and Willis McGahee should both have productive days against a Browns defense that has been run through, run over and tread-marked for 411 yards in their first two games. QB Joe Flacco should be able to open the playbook and throw dimes for yardage and points. Let's just say this should be a highly productive day for the Ravens' O.
The secondary for Organized Chaos has been getting ripped for allowing QB Phillip Rivers to throw dimes in quarter-inch spaces for over 400 yards last week. CBs Fabian Washington and Domonique Foxworth are on the watch list to keep Browns WR Braylon Edwards from breaking out of his funk. Special teams will be on high alert as Joshua Cribbs is a returner that baked, burned, and buried the Ravens for 237 yards and one score last November. QB Brady Quinn will be playing hot-potato as the Brown pass protection has allowed him to tell the grounds keepers if the grass/turf is too soft or too hard on his backside with 9 sacks.
Some will say that this is a possible trap-game for the Ravens, who are riding high in the AFC North, but you know what Clay Davis says…
