PUNDIT PROJECTED WINNER COMMENTARY
Childs Walker
Ravens 27, Browns 23 “If the Ravens have a relatively healthy Lamar Jackson, they will pull out a win late.”
Jonas Shaffer
Browns 21, Ravens 20 “At some point, the Ravens’ success in nail-biters will start to even out. Sunday’s game could be one of those games.”
Ryan McFadden
Ravens 24, Browns 20 “Quarterback Lamar Jackson has said numerous times that he doesn’t like to play down-to-the-wire games. Unfortunately for him, this game has the makings for a close finish and the Ravens will need their star quarterback to help them pull out a win.”
C.J. Doon
Ravens 27, Browns 24 “The Ravens will have a hard time blocking Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney, but a healthy Jackson will be the difference-maker Sunday night.”
Tim Schwartz
Ravens 24, Browns 17 “The Browns defense has kept them afloat and Myles Garrett will continue to make his case for Defensive Player of the Year, but a beat-up Baker Mayfield isn’t in a spot to outduel Jackson.”

Gregg Rosenthal
Ravens 27, Browns 20 “The potential return of Kareem Hunt gives the Browns a chance, but the quarterback disparity is too great, assuming Lamar Jackson is back.”

Ravens 28, Browns 27 “The Ravens will get the offense cranked up with Jackson back, but I think the Browns will as well with their run game. It's close.”

Michael David Smith
Ravens 28, Browns 13 “Lamar Jackson is expected back and the Ravens should have a big win against a Browns team that has not been impressive of late.”
Mike Florio
Ravens 27, Browns 20 “Baker Mayfield is proving that he’s not the answer for the Browns. The next two games, both against the team that used to be the Browns, may cement that notion.”
Chris Simms
Browns 27, Ravens 24 “I don’t think it’s a great Ravens defense. I think they’re going to have issues stopping the Browns run game.”

Ravens 24, Browns 20 “Why should anybody believe Baker Mayfield is winning this game? Credit to him for playing through injuries, but he looks pedestrian, to be kind.”
