Overall, the Ravens lead the series 17-7, and have won the last six straight meetings. In fact, fourth-year head coach John Harbaugh is a perfect 6-0 against the Browns.

On the other side, first-year Cleveland head coach Pat Shurmur is set to square off against Baltimore for the first time in his head coaching career.

The last time these two teams met was Dec. 26 2010. It was a sloppy defensive struggle to say the least. Baltimore was able to pull away late, winning 20-10, as Joe Flacco threw for a season-low 102 yards, but found receivers T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Derrick Mason for touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Browns only touchdown came on a fluke 29-yard pass from wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi to fellow receiver Brian Robiskie. Browns quarterback Colt McCoy wasn’t able to muster up anything against a stout Ravens defense. He completed just 15 of 29 passes for 149 yards, and was picked three times. Ravens safety Ed Reed was on the receiving end for two of those three interceptions.
