(BALTIMORE) — The Cleveland Browns (0-3) will travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens (2-1) Thursday night. The Browns are coming off a tough loss to the Bills and the Ravens won on a time-expiring field goal against the Patriots in week three.
Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden understands the tough task at hand playing against a tough Ravens defense.
“Going on the road in that environment, you’ve gotta feed off the energy in this locker room and the energy of playing on Thursday night,” said Weeden on Tuesday. “Mentally, we’ve got to be ready.”
Rookie running back Trent Richardson says it’s an honor going up against a guy like Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, but isn’t worried that not many people are giving them a chance on the road.
“I know we’ve got a chance, I don’t care what they say,” said Richardson. “We’re going to go out there and try and execute our plays so we can get in the end zone.”
Ravens safety Ed Reed spoke about possibly getting out of September at 3-1.
“This is the first quarter; you want to finish on a good note and step into the second quarter in a positive note and try to prepare for the next upcoming four games.”
Kickoff is set for 8:20 PM Eastern.
