3. Ravens wideouts held to under 50 yards each

As good as the Ravens are on offense, their wide receivers leave a lot to be desired. This season, they already have 934 yards on the ground, which is good for 155.7 yards per contest. As for their passing attack, they’re averaging just 205.7 yards per game.

In all, they have 1,234 yards and the majority of that has been picked up by tight end Mark Andrews. The veteran pass-catcher has 39 receptions for 455 yards and five touchdowns. Their wideouts haven’t been as dangerous with Rashod Bateman at 243 yards on 22 catches and Devin Duvernay recording 240 yards on 22 receptions.

Predicting the Browns to stop Andrews would be foolish since they’ve struggled with tight ends for the past couple of decades. For whatever reason, tight ends have constantly found open space against Cleveland and Andrews will probably get his once again on Sunday.

But that doesn’t mean the entire offense will go off. In this bold prediction, the cornerbacks do their job as they keep both Bateman and Duvernay under 50 yards. It still won’t be easy given the issues they have had in coverage this year but keeping the deep ball from happening will keep the pace of the game at a speed the Browns prefer.
