After a long offseason, months of uncertainty, and ramped up excitement, football season is finally upon us. Week 1 is here and the Cleveland Browns are ready to take on Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in the season opener.

Last season, the Browns were able to run away (literally) with a 40-25 victory at M&T Bank Stadium behind the legs of Nick Chubb. He ran for 165 yards and three TD’s and Baker had an impressive performance, with 20 completions off of 30 attempts, 342 yards and a TD pass. Something most impressive was that the defense held Lamar Jackson to only 66 rushing yards. Of course, after that game, Lamar went to have an MVP season, and the Ravens won 12 straight games and lost to the Titans in the playoffs.
The Browns defense has been questionable this offseason, riddled with injuries and not tested against other teams due to no preseason. Their first battle comes against arguably the most explosive offense in the league and MVP quarterback and the question remains if they have what it takes to stop them like they did last year in Baltimore.
As for the offense, we get to see a new offensive line specifically built to improve the already-good rushing attack, but most importantly protect Baker. What beat the Ravens last year was the legs of Chubb and adding Kareem Hunt to the equation could be a nightmare for Baltimore’s defense.
Now that the Browns have a healthy Odell Beckham Jr. & Jarvis Landry and also adding Austin Hooper & Harrison Bryant to a tight-end-favored Kevin Stefanski offense (who announced that he will call plays in the opener), the Ravens could have a handful of problems to try to contain.
The Cleveland Browns face the Baltimore Ravens tomorrow at 1 p.m. at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore and we will finally get to see this new Browns team in action.
Let’s play some football.
