3 expectations for the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1.

The Cleveland Browns kickoff 2020 against the Baltimore Ravens looking to snap their 15-year opening day losing streak.

The expectation out side of Cleveland is that the Browns are going to get crushed when they take the field Sept. 13, as some sites even have the Browns as eight-point underdogs.

While the Ravens look like the superior team, I’m calling for the upset. Remember, the Browns have shocked Baltimore before, particularly last season, when the Freddie Kitchens led squad crushed the Ravens at home. Rather than spiral out of control, the loss seemed to galvanize Lamar Jackson and company, as Baltimore didn’t lose again until the playoffs.

Now, the Ravens are the front runners to win the North for the second-straight year, while the Browns continue to search for answers.

As the Browns look to snap that sorry losing streak, here’s three expeditions for the opening contest.
