The Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns will face off in a Week 4 AFC North showdown on Sunday, October 1st at Cleveland Browns Stadium. Both teams are currently 2-1, and this game could have a big impact on the divisional standings.
Ravens Lost to Colts in Overtime
The Ravens are coming off a disappointing overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Yet, the Raven’s Lamar Jackson had a solid game all in all. In the end, he threw for 202 yards and rushed for 75 yards. Yet, the Ravens’ defense couldn’t stop the Colts in the second half.
Browns are Coming Off Victory
The Browns, on the other hand, are coming off a dominant 27-3 victory over the Tennessee Titans. Deshaun Watson also looked good in his Browns debut, throwing for 300 yards and eventually two touchdowns. Finally, the Browns’ defense was also impressive. In the end, they also held the Titans to just 227 total yards.
Key Matchups for Ravens vs. Browns
Lamar Jackson vs. Myles Garrett
Ultimately, this is one of the most exciting matchups in the NFL. In the end, it could be a deciding factor in this game. Jackson is one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league. However, Garrett is one of the most elite pass rushers. Finally, if Garrett can put pressure on Jackson, it could force him into mistakes.
Deshaun Watson vs. Marlon Humphrey
Watson is yet another dynamic quarterback who can make plays with his arm and his legs. In addition, Humphrey is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. Furthermore,he will be tasked with covering Watson’s top targets, such as Amari Cooper and Jarvis Landry.
Ravens Running Game vs. Browns Run Defense
The Ravens have a strong running game led by J.K. Dobbins and Kenyan Drake. All in all, the Browns’ run defense has been solid so far this season, but they will be facing a tough test against the Ravens.
Prediction for Ravens vs. Browns
This is a tough game to pick, as both teams are evenly matched. However, I think the Browns have a slight edge because they are playing at home and they also have a more balanced offense. In conclusion, I predict the Browns will win a close game, 24-21.
