Week 9: Browns 24 Ravens 18

The AFC North has been a brutally difficult division since the Browns turned in 1999. We haven’t  had a winning records vs division opponents and haven’t gone a season without being swept by at least ONE team in the div.  Well, this year we have a chance to change all that. With the victory over the Bengals earlier this season, adding a victory over the Ravens means we are THAT much closer to turning the corner and moving on up in the standings.

Cheat Sheets: #4 OSU vs Purdue

Welcome to the fifth edition of The OSU Cheat Sheet - a look at the upcoming opponent, what they bring to the field, what players could give OSU trouble. This way, you'll know what names to watch for on Saturday and what parts of the game could cause the Buckeyes some problems.  

Hope this helps your enjoyment of another OSU victory.  O-H!

Purdue Boilermakers (1-6)

Ok so really, their only win was against Indiana State, 20-14. The rest of the season has been pretty pitiful by B1G standards. They managed to put up 24 points vs Notre Dame and two weeks ago, while going scoreless, held Michigan State to only 14 points. The Buckeyes are their own worst enemy this week.  If they can take care of the football, they'll win easily. 


RB Akeem Hunt, #1, Junior, has been the biggest weapon this season. He has 80 carries 310 yards, averaging around 42 yds per game. As a receiver, he's got 24 catches for 240 yards and 2 TDs. 


They're giving up nearly 200 yds per game on the ground and another 200 in the air. 

Yes, Purdue is a young team and maybe they all had dreams last night of taking down the Big Kid on the B1G block. But it's never gonna happen. And just the thought of how ugly this game could be makes me wonder if I'll even be able to watch it.

Browns vs Chiefs - recap

Browns 17 Chiefs 23

Heartbreakingly close to pulling off a major upset, my Browns were just a play or two away from victory this week.  Instead, we give the Chiefs their 8th win of the season and return home with a record of 3-5. And make no mistake; we GAVE that game to them.  Anyone who watched it could see they didn’t TAKE the victory. Browns has six sacks to Chiefs one, but it was dropped passes and a single turnover that changed the day for the Browns and left fans crying in their beers for the rest of the weekend.

The Browns Defense successfully pinned the Chiefs back deep, forcing them to punt and almost guaranteeing the offense field position near midfield!  Wahoo!  Fans were really starting to believe Jason Campbell could lead us on a Game Winning Drive to score the upset!  And then, in a bizarre twist of fate, Davone Bess (filling in for the injured Travis Benjamin) fumbled the ball.  DEVASTATION! Our Defense managed to hold KC to a field goal but there was precious little time left to get the TD they now needed to win. 
I know those are the breaks but it just seems that the Browns are always on the losing side of the bad break scenarios. Hopefully that will change soon, because these DAWGS need to 
have their DAY!

So this week brings the Baltimore Ravens to Cleveland for what only Browns Fans consider to be a rivalry. Not only do we have an emotional history, but they are a Division Rival in a weak AFC North that is still up for grabs.  I know the Bengals are looking good at 6-2 but it’s still early in the season and there are many games left to play.

Realistically, we’ve lost to the Ravens so many times that I don’t think they even take us seriously. But this isn’t the same Ravens team that won the Super Bowl last year. They are on a losing skid and after their Bye Week, are looking at the Browns as “Easy Pickens” to get back to winning some games…

I’m telling you now, this is a very different and very motivated Browns team and I’m predicting a huge win!!!!
