1. Ravens are struggling to score
For as disgusting as the Browns offense has been, Baltimore has hit its own dry spell offensively, scoring 19 or fewer points in each one of their games spanning the last four weeks.
That what makes the Browns 16-10 loss to Baltimore all the more difficult to digest. The Browns’ defense actually worked. Had the offense done its job, the score wouldn’t have been close.
Perhaps Baltimore is finally feeling the pain of losing several key players to injuries, including running back J.K. Dobbins and tackle Ronnie Stanley.
I’d expect the Ravens to revert to what they do best offensively in this one, and that’s running Lamar Jackson. Fortunately, rookie Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah played a big role in limiting the former MVP’s rushing abilities when these two teams last met.
If the Browns can limit Baltimore offensively, then Cleveland better win. If not, forget 2021. It’s over.
