Three stats that stand out ahead of Ravens-Browns game on Sunday

Three stats that stand out ahead of Ravens-Browns game on Sunday

Such an expectation wasn't fair, let alone reasonable.

Out at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens will be meeting up in a divisional rivalry game in NFL Week 2 action.

It's no surprise to see the Ravens giving up more than a touchdown given the way both teams performed last week - but it's worth noting that these teams have been engaged in some tightly-contested games in recent years. We are talking about a young rookie quarterback who is one of the youngest players in the league at that position.

Gregg Williams' defense looked transformed as they forced three three-and-outs, picked off a pass and limited the Steelers to just 2 scoring drives while Kizer showed promise despite a less than flawless debut.


Cleveland doesn't have far to go if they want to improve over 2016; they finished just 1-15 and dead last in the division during last season's campaign. He's got to continue to grow and get better and continue to show improvement and progress week in and week out.

The Colts await in Indianapolis next weekend and it's likely they won't have Andrew Luck at quarterback meaning Williams' defense should be able to feast again.

0-2: The Browns have dropped their first two games of the season three times in the past five years. "Sometimes they get you for those things".

Find some wood and knock on it hard, but the Cleveland Browns enter the Week 2 game with the Baltimore Ravens in quite fortuitous health.
