Today's Matchups To Watch

Browns TE Kellen Winslow Jr. vs. Ravens CB Frank Walker

In the first game, Walker shadowed Winslow in passing situations. Winslow is bigger than Walker, but Walker bothered him like a gnat. But down the field, Winslow could cause Walker and the Ravens big trouble because of the physical mismatch.

Edge: Winslow:

Browns DT Shaun Rogers vs. Ravens C Jason Brown

Any success running against the Browns has to start with controlling Rogers. He eats up a lot of space in the middle with his girth and strength. Brown has the initial explosion to neutralize Rogers. He did a good job on Rogers in the first game and got a lot of help from guards Ben Grubbs and Marshal Yanda. He'll need similar assistance today.

Edge: Rogers:

: Browns KR Joshua Cribbs vs. Ravens LB Brendon Ayanbadejo

Cribbs has played well against the Ravens in the past. He is very patient setting up his blocks and then has great acceleration. The Ravens will try to kick away from him, but when they can't they need a good game from Ayanbadejo, their special teams ace. He'll be zoned in on Cribbs today.

Edge: Cribbs:
