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.
