The Baltimore Ravens sputtered to start the 2013 season, which has left them below .500 at the midway point of the season and looking up in the AFC North. On Sunday, they will have a chance to rebound against the rival Cleveland Browns, as they search for the always important division win.
Baltimore is favored by 2.5-points, which seems like an easy number for them to cover on the road. The over/under is set at 41, which could be a bit optimistic.
The Browns were on a hot streak when Brian Hoyer was running the show, but ever since he suffered his torn ACL the team has been struggling. Brandon Weeden was benched in favor of Jason Campbell and the team is just an absolute disaster.
If the Ravens aren’t able to begin their season turnaround this week, it will be a huge disappoint as they begin to fade in the AFC playoff picture.
For the Browns, a win will allow them to finally get momentum on their side and attempt a push back to the top of the AFC North, where they were just a few weeks ago.
