Picks & analysis for 2016 NFL Week 10 Thursday Night Game.
NFL Week 10 Thursday Night
CLEVELAND BROWNS 0-9 @ BALTIMORE RAVENSS 3-4
-7.5 44 [O]
I tried during my weekly research/review of the TNF matchup, really tried, to find some statistical fulcrum to justify picking the Browns to cover.
- Harbaugh on Thursdays? Winning record …
- ON TNF at M&T Bank Stadium? Undefeated…
- After wins over their most hated rivals, Pittsburgh? More wins than losses…
The fact is, in the Cleveland is marginally better than the Magpies at rushing the football. In every other stat, the Brownies scrape bottom—like carp in the Cuyahoga River.
My Pittsburgh roots demand a healthy vibrant hate for John Harbaugh—but his record commands equally healthy respect. Since Ray Lewis retired, the Ravens have been on both ends of one possession games more than any other team.
Baltimore’s special teams are nearly always special under Harbaugh, the first guy to get paid as an official Special Teams Coordinator.
Last week, the Crows blocked a fourth quarter punt against the Steelers. In week two against the Browns, Harbaugh seethed watching his defense surrender two first half touchdowns passes to WR, rookie, Corey Coleman, sandwiched between an 85 yard Isaiah Crowell burst right down the Raven’s gullet.
Most teams would be stunned after such a first quarter onslaught, down 20 -0 waiting for the inevitable extra point.
Harbaugh’s field goal team, not only blocked the ensuing PAT—but ran it back for their first 2 points en route to 25 unanswered and yet another win in a one possession game.
The Browns have some players on both sides of the ball. They could pull an upset on anyone. I’d love to see it; I’m a Steelers fan.
I won’t hold my breath. The Ravens may be finding their footing and I’m sure their coach will remind them how important this division game is after last week’s win against Pittsburgh.
Take the Rat Birds and give and give Cleveland the 7.5 points.
They’re probably gonna need a little more, Over the Total.
