Week 15 Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens

While Cleveland has been able to knock off the Bengals in recent years, they’ve had their share of struggles with the Baltimore Ravens. Cleveland has lost five of their past six games against the Ravens with their lone win coming in December of 2021 when Lamar Jackson threw just four passes before giving way to Tyler Huntley.

Even so, the Browns won by just two points, 24-22, as these two teams often play one another tough. That was the case earlier this season when Baltimore had a 23-20 win at home over Cleveland.

Despite being underdogs and on the road, the Browns took it to the Ravens — and should have had a lead late in the game. Trailing by three, Jacoby Brissett threw a deep pass to Amari Cooper and hit him in stride for a touchdown. The problem was that the officials decided to call one of the softest offensive pass interferences of the season, wiping out the score. Cleveland then settled for a field goal but Cade York had his kick blocked.

Fast-forward to Week 15 and Jackson could be out once again. Even with him, it was just a three-point win for Baltimore, so the Browns should be able to take this one if Huntley is in — or even if Jackson isn’t at 100 percent.

Prediction: Browns 26, Ravens 20
Record: 6-8
