The Cleveland Browns take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7 and need a win in the worst way. Here are 5 bold predictions as they seek that victory.

Hopes are starting to get dashed as the Cleveland Browns have lost three games in a row. Despite this, they’re still very much alive in the AFC North, which is nowhere near as competitive as expected.

Not one team in the North has a winning record, with the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals sitting at 3-3. Cleveland and Pittsburgh are both 2-4, and with a road trip to Baltimore, the Browns could find themselves in first place with a win.

Here, we look ahead to that game and make five bold predictions.

5. Lamar Jackson picked off twice

Lamar Jackson has been good this season for the Ravens, but he hasn’t been great. He’s completing just 61.9 percent of his passes and has six interceptions as well as three fumbles. In their latest outing, the Ravens lost 24-20 to the New York Giants while Jackson turned it over two times to hand the game to New York.

With a 20-17 lead, Jackson was picked off and the Giants capitalized with a touchdown, to go up 24-20. Then on the ensuing drive, Jackson was sacked by rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux and fumbled it away.

This first bold prediction is that Jackson continues to struggle with turnovers, throwing two picks to the Browns. This defense has had its issues but if they find a way to create a couple of turnovers, good things can happen.
