Cleveland (0-9) at Baltimore (4-4), 8:25 p.m. on NFL Network and Twitter. Week 10 of the 2016 NFL season gets underway in Charm City with a week two rematch of AFC North clubs, one team reaching the .500 mark, while the other team is looking for their first win of the season.

The Browns remain winless after their 35-10 loss to Dallas last Sunday at home. Trailing 21-10 at the break, Dak Prescott (247 yards, three TDS) and the Cowboys went on to shutout Cleveland in the second half, keeping them winless for the ninth time in the 2016 campaign (their 12th loss in row, including the last three games last year). While the Browns were held to 45 yards rushing, the Cowboys ran amok for 168 yards in the lopsided win.

Baltimore evened their record with a 21-14 win over Pittsburgh in Charm City in AFC North action. The Ravens led 10-0 at the half against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers before Pittsburgh rallied in the final quarter with a pair of TDs to pull to within seven. After Pittsburgh’s second TD (a 4-yard romp by Roethlisberger with 48 seconds left), the Steelers attempted an onside kick (the operative word here being attempted). Chris Boswell tried and failed on the attempt, then kicked the ball in the hopes that he would not be caught. Flags flew for an illegal kick (Pittsburgh was flagged 13 times for 99 yards) and the Ravens got the ball and ran out the clock. Neither club came anywhere near the 100-yard barrier (Baltimore had 50, Pittsburgh had 36), Joe Flacco threw for 241 yards and a TD, connecting with WR Mike Wallace on an 95-yard strike to open the scoring.

They met in week two along the shores of Lake Erie and the Ravens overcame a 20-12 halftime deficit to come away 25-20 winners. Baltimore shut out the Browns 13-0 in the final 30 minutes of action at FirstEnergy Stadium, taking the lead for keeps on a 49-yard field goal by Jeff Tucker with 11:19 left to play in regulation. Tucker then added a 41-yarder with 2:53 left to seal the deal. Cleveland’s Isaiah Crowell led all rushers with 133 yards and a TD as the Browns outrushed Baltimore 145-80, while Josh McCown was sacked three times and picked off twice, despite throwing a pair of TDs (Flacco threw for 302 and two TDs).

In the first meeting, Baltimore won by five (the Ravens were favored by 6 1/2) and both teams combined for 45 points, which means they covered the 42 1/2 over/under. This time around, the Ravens are favored at home in Charm City by 10 with the over/under at 45 1/2. The Ravens are looking to keep first place in the AFC North, while the Browns are looking for a win by any means. Cleveland’s gonna need a hug this week. The Browns keep it close but Baltimore completes the sweep in Charm City with the win.
