NFL Betting Matchup: Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns

Baltimore took a 13-7 decision over Buffalo in the season’s first week. The defense allowed only 160 yards, and that was a great statement for squad that made some changes in the off-season, and also got some players back who were hurt last year, most notably outside linebacker Terrell Suggs. Remember that safety Eric Weddle is now a member of the secondary, and while he is no Ed Reed, he is still Pro Bowl-caliber.

The Browns looked like one of those teams that is on a losing road once again, as they dropped a 29-10 decision to the Philadelphia Eagles, who were using first-time starter Carson Wentz at quarterback. They gave up 278 yards passing in the game, and mounted relatively little in meaningful offense. Oh, and now they have lost their starting quarterback.

Robert Griffin III made the start for Cleveland a quarterback last week, and he was largely ineffective, completing only 12 out of his 26 passes. He also hurt his shoulder and has been placed on injured reserve. That leaves the Browns once again in the hands of veteran Josh McCown, who was the starting quarterback for most of last season, providing the team with an insurance policy for Johnny Manziel’s screw ups. McCown threw 12 touchdown passes with only four interceptions, and he exploded in a 33-30 overtime victory over the Ravens, passing for 457 yards. Of course, Baltimore’s secondary was in a lot worse shape than it is now, due to injuries.

BetAnySports customers may not know this, but the Ravens had 20 players on injured reserve last season. It’s pretty tough to get through a season like that. But now they have last year’s first-round draft pick, the Breshad Perriman healthy, and he could make a difference over the long run. Also, Mike Wallace was acquired for the purposes of providing a home-run threat, and he’s already delivered, connecting with Joe Flacco on a 66-yard touchdown last week. Even Steve Smith came back for another season, because he suffered an injury that ended what was supposed to be his farewell tour, so to speak.

McCown’s options are more limited than they were last year. The Browns lost receivers in the off-season, including Travis Benjamin, and they now have people like rookie Corey Coleman (the first-rounder from Baylor) and converted quarterback Terrelle Pryor lining up on the outside. Josh Gordon, who had formerly been their go-to threat, is on suspension. Cleveland’s roster is heavily populated with first or second-year players as they are once again “building for the future,” now with the assistance of executive Paul DiPodesta of “Moneyball” fame.
