It was a rough game for the Ravens' offensive line during the first meeting with the Cleveland Browns.
They allowed four sacks and seven quarterback hurries during a 23-16 victory at M&T Bank Stadium, having particular success on stunts and slants as defensive linemen Jabaal Sheard and Ahtyba Rubin each decked quarterback Joe Flacco once apiece.
For rookie offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele, the Browns game is one that he's used as determination to refine his techniques heading into Sunday's road game at Cleveland.
"Just watching the last Cleveland game, I've seen significant improvement," Osemele said. "I'm not even the same player than the first time we played.
"Just my technique overall has significantly improved. Just recognizing when a guy's getting slanted, just my awareness has improved. Your footwork improves, too."
