BROWNS PASS OFFENSE VS. RAVENS PASS DEFENSE:
Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and safety Ed Reed have long tormented the Browns. Suggs has 12 career sacks and seven forced fumbles against Cleveland, though he’s had a much tougher time of it in recent years with the Browns’ addition of left tackle Joe Thomas, a four-time Pro Bowl selection. Reed has 10 career interceptions, three of which he returned for touchdowns, against the Browns, his most against any team. Browns second-year quarterback Colt McCoy (above) has had an uneven season, throwing 13 touchdowns to eight interceptions and completing 58.5 percent of his passes. McCoy threw three interceptions and had a quarterback rating of 27.0 the only time he faced the Ravens’ defense. His top receiver this season has been Greg Little who leads the team and all NFL rookies with 47 receptions this season. Little caught his first touchdown last Sunday against the Bengals, but he also dropped four passes in the game. Mohamed Massaquoi, Jordan Norwood, Joshua Cribbs and tight end Benjamin Watson also have roles in the Browns’ passing game, which averages 199.1 yards per contest, which is 24th in the NFL. The Browns have allowed 27 sacks this season, while the Ravens’ defense is coming off a game in which they registered nine sacks.
