The Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns will kick off Week 4 tonight as the two AFC North rivals square off in Baltimore. I use the term rivals lightly, as the series between the two teams hasn’t been competitive as of late. Baltimore has dominated the series, as they’ve won the last eight meetings and given up only 91 points (11.4 points per game) in those wins, though the Browns rookie threesome of QB Brandon Weeden, RB Trent Richardson, and WR Josh Gordon could be key to making this a competitive series again. It will be a tall task to do, especially without Pro Bowl CB Joe Haden. Through two games of his four-game suspension, the Browns have allowed six TD passes to six different receivers.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (knee), OL Jah Reid (calf) and LB Brendon Ayanbadejo (knee) were limited in practice on Tuesday but are expected to play Thursday.

Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) has been ruled out for tonight’s contest.

Steelers OLB James Harrison (knee) did not participate in Wednesday’s practiceand may not be ready to return Week 5 vs. the Eagles.
