Ravens: Deep balls should be featured against Browns in week 2

Carson Went found success. So should Joe Flacco.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Against the Buffalo Bills, the Baltimore Ravens offense found itself- for the most part - struggling to find consistency and rhythm needed to put up the numbers some were expecting.

The Cleveland Browns defense presents the perfect early season opportunity for the Ravens offense to find its rhythm. Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz threw two touchdown passes on nine routes against the Browns defense in week 1.

Browns’ Joe Haden is a cornerback thought to be elite but he has shown in the past to be vulnerable to receivers who possess the ability to break down press coverage with nifty footwork and violent hands. Ravens wide receivers in Steve Smith Sr. and Breshad Perriman should get their opportunities. Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace does not fit the profile described above, but offensive coordinator Marc Trestman - through bunch formations - will find a way to get him down the field for the nine routes that he is suited for.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco himself will be sure to imprint his own hand on the game plan.
