Trying not to let the disillusionment that Brandon Weeden and the Browns started in me last week carry over. Hoping the offense can find its way a little bit to help out the defense, who should pressure Flacco quite a bit.
I can't think of a worse situation for the Browns to be playing in today. Super Bowl champs that were humiliated in game 1 against Denver return for their home opener against a team coming off a bad loss to a middle of the road team. It's gonna be a long day for Brandon Weeden, especially if Cousins hasn't learned how to block in the past week.
The Browns have lost 10 in a row to the Ravens, and will make it 11 the same day Baltimore raises its second Super Bowl banner. Cleveland usually plays close games against their ex-selves, but until this franchise gets a QB under center, wins against division foes will be hard to come by.
Let me know what happens in the second half. Indians on at 2pm.
It's amazing - the players, the coaches, the regimes can all change again and again, yet the team looks exactly the same every Sunday. How's that possible?
Browns can't be as bad as they looked last week, but they aren't better than the Ravens. Manning threw for seven TDs against Baltimore; I'd settle for just four from Weeden.
These predictions are way too easy.
