Back in Week 4, these teams met for their first game of the 2012 season, a game the Baltimore Ravens won by a margin of 23-16. In the weeks since, the Cleveland Browns have managed to win two games, but will that have any bearing on this week's outcome?
The Cleveland Browns have won both their games at home this season, and over solid competition as the Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers dropped games in Cleveland Browns Stadium. Over the last four weeks, the difference maker has been Brandon Weeden, who has thrown for 915 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions.
Last time the Baltimore Ravens were on the road it was a deflating experience. Visiting the Houston Texans, the Ravens had no answer for the vaunted Houston offense that managed to amass 420 yards of total offense. The bright spot for Baltimore this season has been Ray Rice, who has earned his new contract signed in the offseason. Rice has more than 500 yards rushing, and another 250 yards receiving to again show why he's regarded as one of the league's best multi-functional backs.
