The 3-1 Ravens are aiming for their sixth straight series win over the 1-2-1 Browns in Week 5. Baltimore boasts the NFL’s fifth ranked scoring offense and third ranked scoring defense, compared to Cleveland’s 19th ranked total offense and 25th ranked total defense.

In the midst of a resurgent season, Joe Flacco must prioritize ball security on the road. His receivers have favorable matchups against the corners across from rookie Denzel Ward. Baltimore may again have trouble jumpstarting their run game against a stout defensive front.

Cleveland will counter will exciting rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield. His best individual matchup is athletic tight end David Njoku against the Ravens safeties. The Browns will attempt to impose their will with a smash mouth rushing attack.

Expect a physical AFC North battle.
