Northern Territory: Can the Browns improved line elevate their QB play?

A look at the happenings with the Ravens’ division rivals

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Northern Territory is a new series at Baltimore Beatdown that is similar to the Ravens Nest, a collection of links to stories across the NFL internet landscape. Northern Territory will focus exclusively on news and stories surrounding the Ravens’ rivals in the AFC North.

Cincy Jungle - Cincinnati Bengals

Bengals positional comparison from 2016 to 2017: offensive guard

Dawgs By Nature - Cleveland Browns

Can Cody Kessler take advantage of an improved Browns offensive line?

But the Browns weren’t blind; with or without significant upgrades at the quarterback position, nothing would truly bring about improvements if the offensive line wasn’t more talented. Thus, Cleveland brought along a pair of free agents—center J.C. Tretter and guard Kevin Zeitler—while at the same time getting guard Joel Bitonio back from a foot injury that cost him all but five games a year ago.

Behind the Steel Curtain - Pittsburgh Steelers

Making sense of the Steelers wide receiving corps heading into 2017

Eli Rogers established himself as a viable no. 3 receiver. Sammie Coates briefly became Martavis Bryant version two before vaporizing half of the bones in his right hand. Cobi Hamilton and Demarcus Ayers both caught touchdown passes. Darrius Heyward-Bey did little to diminish his employability. Then, this offseason, Pittsburgh signed Justin Hunter, a former second-round draft choice, and used their own second-round pick on Juju Smith-Schuster, an All-American at USC and one of the top receivers in the draft.
