Here go the Browns yet again, hanging with an NFL powerhouse.
First, they top the Saints. Then they stun the Patriots. Is an upset over the Jets next for Cleveland?
They currently trail the Jets by four with the fourth quarter just underway in Cleveland.
Colt McCoy would become a popular guy in Baltimore (and New England, and Pittsburgh...) if he could pull that one off.
Going into the Ravens' bye week, we heard from players and coaches how the timing of their week off was perfect, as it would allow a handful of banged up players to rest and let their various bumps and bruises heal.
The same is true for this handful of extra days that the Ravens have off after Thursday night's game against the Falcons.
The loss at Atlanta hurt the Ravens in the standings, but it also left them a little battered in the health department.
Wide receiver Derrick Mason told reporters that he's pretty sure that he broke his pinky finger on his right hand - the same finger that he had surgery on during the bye week.
Running back Rice Rice battled through a shoulder injury, linebacker Ray Lewis had to leave the game early in the first quarter with a foot sprain, cornerback Josh Wilson missed about a series after suffering an apparent left leg injury, and safety Ed Reed, who is clearly not 100 percent, was left limping throughout parts of the game after landing on his knee late in the first half.
In a normal week, the Ravens would only get two days after a Sunday game to rest up before starting full practices yet again. This week, they get five days in between Thursday's contest and Wednesday's practice.
So, while the Ravens had to battle through a super short week of preparation going into the Atlanta game, having that contest on Thursday night will benefit them this time.
The players got Friday, Saturday and Sunday off, and the Ravens hope that they'll be back at team headquarters tomorrow morning in good shape physically and ready to get to work on the Panthers.
