The Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns meet in a week 16 AFC North division matchup from FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Baltimore Ravens will look to lock up home field through the playoffs after improving to 12-3 on the year with a 42-21 win over the Jets on Thursday night. Lamar Jackson threw for 212 yards and 5 touchdowns on 15 of 23 passing while also rushing for a team-high 86 yards. Mark ingram II added 76 rushing yards and a touchdown while Gus Edwards added 35 rushing yards. Seth Roberts led Baltimore with 66 receiving yards while Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown each had a team-high 4 catches with a touchdown. Ingram II and Miles Boykin each contributed a touchdown reception as well in the victory. Defensively, Domata Peko led the Ravens with 6 total tackles while Tyus Bowser had a sack and Chuck Clark added an interception. As a team, Baltimore is averaging 409.7 yards of total offense and 33.7 points per game while allowing 314.3 yards of total defense and 18.4 points per game against this season.

The Cleveland Browns will look to bounce back after a 38-24 loss to Arizona in their last outing. Baker Mayfield threw for 247 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception while Nick Chubb led the Browns in rushing with 127 rushing yards and a touchdown on 17 carries. Odell Beckham Jr. led the Browns with 8 catches for 66 yards while Kareem Hunt had 8 grabs for 62 yards and Ricky Seals-Jones had a pair of touchdown receptions. Defensively, Greedy Williams led the Browns with 9 total tackles while Damarious Randall added 8 tackles and Mack Wilson had an interception. As a team, Cleveland is averaging 350.1 yards of total offense and 21.2 points per game while allowing 353.1 yards of total defense and 23.5 points per game against this season.

Baltimore is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 division games. Cleveland is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 division games and 6-22-2 ATS in their last 30 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 16-5 in their last 21 games as a home underdog. Baltimore is 8-2-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings between these two teams in Cleveland.

Cleveland as a home dog is tempting, but realistically the Browns have nothing but pride to play for at this point and this Cleveland team is just a mess right now. Baltimore would clinch home field with a win here, and the Ravens are also just playing better football right now. I think this is a game that the Ravens win by at least two scores, so I’ll lay the points with Baltimore here.
