AFC North rivals get set for battle in Week 2 as the Browns host the Ravens in their home opener.
The Browns were ran all over by the Eagles in Week 1, while the Raven defense came up huge against the Bills.
The Ravens did little offensively, but it was their defense that was the difference.
Baltimore held firm and took down Buffalo 13-7 to open their season off with a win.
QB Joe Flacco finished 23 of 34 with 258 yards and added a touchdown as he never forced the issue. While there wasn’t much deep down field, Flacco continued to move the chains and keep the Ravens offense on the field.
Defensively, the Ravens held the Bills to just 160 yards as they had pressure in the backfield all afternoon long.
Baltimore will look to add to their recent success over the Browns. The Ravens have gone 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games in Cleveland.
The Browns season couldn’t have started any worse.
Cleveland was knocked around in Philadelphia to start the season and now saw their big free agent QB signing in Robert Griffin III get injured. Griffin will miss at least 8 weeks with a broken bone in his shoulder, leaving the duties to Josh McCown.
As bad as the offense looked with Griffin in Week 1, Isaiah Crowell was at least somewhat respectable. Crowell finished with 62 yards on 12 carriers. Look for him to get a lot of touches here in this one.
Defensively, Cleveland was an absolute mess. The Browns continued to get beat down field and over the top. With how many weapons this Ravens offense has, expect them to really be tested early.
TE Gary Barnidge will be key here. He led the team in yards and touchdowns last season, but was held to nothing last week. Expect him to get a lot of targets this week.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Browns ATS
After last week, backing Cleveland could be a dangerous move.
However, they will be at home in this spot and McCown has a lot to prove. Expect him to play well here as the Browns keep this close throughout.
