The Baltimore Ravens look have been inconsistent this season losing 4 out of the last 5 games and look to bounce back from a 17-7 loss to the Bengals in which Cincinnati completed a sweep of the Ravens for the first time ever.
The Ravens defense are facing a Browns team that is dead last in the NFL in every offensive and defensive category. Both the offense and defenses should have monster games. I expect the offense and defense to have their best statistical game of the year. Quarterback Joe Flacco should have his way the Browns secondary and rookie running back Ray Rice should have a career day as well.
Look for the Ravens to bring a heavy pass rush and stuff the running game with defensive end Jarrett Johnson, linebacker Terrell Suggs and future Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis. Safety Ed Reed should man the secondary and get an interception in this game and possibly return one for a TD. Even though the Ravens have struggled recently, this is the confidence game that they needed to get back on track.
