Rob Carr

The Ravens are near-unanimous picks to earn their first win of the season over the Browns.

The Baltimore Ravens take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 of the NFL season. Both teams are still looking for their first win after disappointing performances in Week 1.

The Ravens were shredded by Peyton Manning and the Broncos, falling 49-27 and losing another offensive player to injury. Jacoby Jones is out 4-6 weeks with a sprained MCL, so the Ravens will try to turn to Marlon Brown as a starter opposite Torrey Smith.

The Browns will try to use a more balanced offensive attack after giving Trent Richardson just 13 carries in a loss to the Dolphins. A strong defensive effort wasn't enough to overcome Brandon Weeden's three interceptions.

Baltimore is almost a unanimous pick to win on Sunday. Of the 13 ESPN panelists who made their picks this week, all 13 predict the Ravens to win. Over at CBS Sports, all eight experts are also picking the Ravens, although three of them like the Browns to cover the 6.5-point spread.
