Home game. Ravens. So close last time. Old team. Young team. Once in a while things need to work out.

The Ravens are on a decline, and the Browns are on the upswing. The Browns lose a heartbreaker as the Ravens pull off another division win.

Each week, the Browns make incremental strides in the direction of respectability. That inchworm-like progress continues today, although it won't be enough to beat the injured-riddled (but still dangerous) Ravens.

John Harbaugh and Paul Ryan both attended Miami University and will suffer significant losses just two days apart. There are no coincidences in my box, as The Vox improves to 9-0 in this space.

The Browns are improving, it seems, every week but the 2 wins have been a bit of "fool's gold" in my opinion. Without some of the Ravens defensive leaders, the Browns have a chance, but the bad guys have just enough talent and experience to pull it out in the end.

Once again, hope is alive.

Going to pick against the local experts (radio callers). Their optimism is unreal.
