Staff picks for Sunday’s AFC North game between the Ravens and Browns in Cleveland:
Ravens 28, Browns 13
The Browns are still winless, and the Ravens need this game to keep pace in the wild-card race. They beat the Browns, 24-10, in Baltimore in September, and the Ravens offense has improved since then. And if the Ravens can’t beat this team, they probably don’t deserve to be in the playoffs.
This is the type of game that can trip up a team with playoff aspirations dancing in its collective mind. But the Browns just don’t have the ammunition to prevent them from falling to 0-14.
Ravens 27, Cleveland 20
The Browns will play hard because they have a new general manager in place. If not, they would’ve folded weeks ago. Regardless, the Ravens will find a way to win. If they don't, the Browns will create one for them.
