The Cleveland Browns are winless, 0-9 for the first time in this version of the franchise's history. Now they must play on a short week at their hated rival, the Ravens — who used to be the Browns before fleeing to Baltimore in 1996.
The Ravens are 10-point favorites. Is this the time to go out on a limb — way out on a limb — and take Cleveland to finally win?
Cowboys came through last week; counting on ARIZONA to do the same this week.
