Baltimore stays near the top of the division despite a tough overtime loss

Technically the Ravens are tied with the Steelers in the AFC North standings, but the Steelers win the tie breaker in this instance for the sake of the article. They would have a lot of paperwork to sift through to determine the actual winner right now. There is a lot of football left to be played and the Ravens need some time to rebound from last week.

It was a tough loss in Baltimore last week after they were upset against the Indianapolis Colts. The visiting team was without their rookie starting quarterback and looked to be done before they pulled a miracle out of nowhere. The Ravens found many different ways to lose that game, which is something that seems rare for that team.

They head on the road this week to take on the Cleveland Browns. This is a huge game for the Ravens as they need to win these divisional games now, so they are in the thick of the race later. Lamar Jackson has been strong to start the year, but their roster has a lot of injuries that kicked in at the very start of the regular season schedule.

This is not a must win for the Ravens, but they need to show a lot of improvements compared to last week. They need to battle with the Browns and find different ways to use their running game to their advantage. It should be a tough opponent for them as they go up against one of the best defenses that they will face the entire year.
