bengals vs ravensThe Baltimore Ravens will travel to Cleveland this week to take on a surprising Browns team as they look to put the Ray Rice saga behind them. Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett have taken over the running game for the ravens and rushed for 251 yards in two weeks.

“Both those guys played well, ran hard and protected the football,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. “The offensive line has played really well in front of them, too.”

Ravens quarterback, Joe Flacco completed 35 of 62 passes in a 23-16 loss on Sept. 7 to Cincinnati, racking up 345 yards, a touchdown and an interception for a 71.0 rating.

Against the Steelers, the team trimmed the attempts by more than half, and Flacco went 21 for 29 with 166 yards, two TDs, no turnovers and a 109.3 rating.

“(The offensive line) did a great job,” Flacco told the team’s official website. “Any time you can protect the quarterback the way they did and wear a team out and get those running yards late, it’s a credit to those guys.”

Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer continues to hold off rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel and the Browns are a surprising 1-1 after two games. The Browns have averaged 152 yards per game on the ground which is taking the pressure off of Hoyer.

In a win against New Orleans last week, Hoyer went 8 of 11 for 78 yards on the final drive, converting twice on third down, and will enter the team’s second home game with the confidence of Cleveland fans, as well as his teammates.

“It’s great to get a win,” said Hoyer, who finished 24 of 40 for 204 yards and a touchdown. “The biggest thing for me is to win a game like that. We won one like that in my first start against Minnesota last year and you see the guys when you get back to the sideline really believing in you. That’s the best feeling there is.

This will be a tough challenge for the Browns but we are going to pick an upset here over Baltimore.
