Week two just became a completely new game. Well, at least kind of.
The Browns have placed QB Robert Griffin III on injured reserve.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 12, 2016
The Cleveland Browns have lost their starting quarterback, Robert Griffin III.
The Baltimore Ravens are heading to Cleveland this Sunday, playing their first divisional game of the year. This means the Baltimore Ravens will face off against backup quarterback Josh McCown.
It’s not going to be a cakewalk, as the Ravens played McCown last year and it wasn’t pretty. McCown abused the Ravens secondary, posting a gawdy statsheet:
Josh McCown: 36/51 | 457 yds | 2 TD | 0 INT | 111.3 QBR | 1 RUSH TD
While I don’t expect this to happen again, we all know the Ravens from time-to-time play down to their opponent. Hopefully the Ravens don’t let up from their week 1 defensive prowess and leave Cleveland 2-0.
