The Browns, who continue to struggle on defense, are running back-to-back overs in this instance. The game against the Falcons also had the mileage and chances to make ends meet. The Ravens’ defense wasn’t spectacular either, so we have another scenario with two good rushing teams against two bad defenses. Running teams are the ones that have more success as Cover-2, Cover-3 and Zone are all called and these two teams should have offensive successes this week.

Cleveland’s offense was caught by New England, but Bill Belichick sold against the run and again outsmarted Kevin Stefanski, much like he did for the Browns in last year’s blowout loss. Since Stefanski took over the Browns in 2020, regular-season hits have been 44, 89, 26, and 46 points, so games have been up and down, but last year’s first game had six turnovers and the second game Lamar didn’t have Jackson. The 44-point game of 2020 was Stefanski’s first with the team as head coach and there was no preseason. The Ravens have averaged nearly 31 points per game against the Browns since the coaching change.

Baltimore had 211 rushing yards against the Giants and actually had seven yards per game but found a way to lose. In Cleveland’s loss to the Patriots, the result and defensive pattern forced Jacoby Brissett to make 45 pass attempts in 67 games. That’s not the blueprint for success, and I would assume Cleveland is running a lot more against a Baltimore defense that went into the Giants’ game and gave up six yards per game and five yards per carry.

Tip: Over 45.5
