Browns vs Ravens: TV Schedule, Injury Report, And More

After one fourth of the 2015 NFL season over, the Cleveland Browns have not played up to expectations, but they do have the talent to right the ship heading into Week 5.

Cleveland needs to improve upon their play as the progress that was expected overall has not been seen. What better opportunity to do just that than against a division rival? Week 5 is Cleveland’s first divisional game of 2015 as they face the Baltimore Ravens on the road.

This rivalry has plenty of bad blood between the two teams. Over many seasons, both teams have had a focus of playing good defense and running the ball to win– which comes in handy in the AFC North.

Given that their division is known for their low scoring games with a “black and blue” mentality, one matchup worth watching is Cleveland’s defense vs Baltimore’s running game.

Which aspect is going to show up today? Will Cleveland’s defense get their responsibilities in check and play up to a high standard unlike previous weeks or will Baltimore’s running game continue to improve after doing very well in Week 4?

One bright spot for the Browns is TE Gary Barnidge. Coming into this season, he was not known as the typical go to player a QB could rely upon. Through four games in 2015, that is no longer the case. Barnidge needs to continue to be involved quite a bit in the team’s gameplan for a chance at winning on the road.

Nothing is overlooked in the NFL. Cleveland has a tough test on the road as Baltimore is not only a key division rival, but could also have been much better in the standings. Their three losses combined for a total of 14 points.

Cleveland has a 1-3 record after a loss to San Diego. Coming into this week’s game, Cleveland is tied with Baltimore for third place in the AFC North and are three games back of the Cincinnati Bengals.
