RAVENS, 13-10

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - WEEK 2 MATCH UP - Browns WR Corey Cole­man.

Con­sen­sus line: Ravens by 71⁄ Pre­dic­tion: A dom­i­nat­ing de­fense car­ried the Ravens to a big road win last week, and play­ing against a rookie quar­ter­back at home pro­vides an­other op­por­tu­nity for a tra­di­tion­ally strong de­fense to lead the way. The Browns be­lieve they have a pretty good de­fense of their own, and af­ter go­ing 1-15 last


sea­son they’re ea­ger to change out­side opin­ions. Kizer spread the ball around last week and kept fir­ing even af­ter tak­ing some big shots, and he’ll again need to be fear­less in the pocket but smart with the ball. This one will prob­a­bly fea­ture a lot of punts and more big hits than big plays, and the Ravens seem to thrive in that type of game.

uS­TART: Ravens RB Ter­rance West. West (19 car­ries, 80 rush­ing yards, TD in Week 1) has a chance to make it two big games in a row. Un­til QB Joe Flacco is back to nor­mal you can ex­pect the Ravens to be run heavy.

uSIT: Cole­man looked ev­ery bit the part of a top wide­out in Week 1. He fin­ished with 53 yards and a touch­down on five re­cep­tions but Bal­ti­more al­lowed just 144 pass­ing yards and had four in­ter­cep­tions and five sacks last week.
