What CST thinks about Browns-Ravens today

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns 
September 18, 2016

Ravens 31, Browns 17

What a week. Griffin, Salazar, Cookie. At least we have the Buckeyes. And the 73-win Warriors blew a 3-1 lead. But the Browns' "basic" defense couldn't stop Oklahoma, let alone a real NFL team.

It's a long day for the team AND the fans. Two late scores make the final seem a lot closer than the game was. Boo birds will be out in force, even in the first half.

Browns 24, Ravens 21

Even the worst Browns teams have a surprise win in them, and today's home opener is it for 2016. McCown has played well against the Ravens, and a couple of our young defenders made impact plays in last week's loss. I have no idea where this optimism is coming from, and it may not last a quarter, but I'll ride the good vibes for all they're worth.

I think McCown keeps it close, but we kind of suck.

Thanks Obama!

Not even my halftime ice cream sandwich can save this team.

I learned to handicap NFL games through a three-credit online course at Trump University. Best investment EVER!
