Sunday’s matchup at M&T Bank Stadium will feature the top two defensive units in the NFL statistically when the Ravens host the Browns in an intense Week 10 matchup.
Cleveland ranks first in yards allowed (234.8), the fewest allowed through nine weeks in 15 years.
Baltimore leads the league in points allowed (13.8), the lowest number this far into a season since its 2000 Super Bowl-winning defense.
During his post-practice sit down with the media, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was asked about his squad, and he didn’t hide the praise.
“Not trying to toot our own horn, but I believe our defense has no weakness,” Lamar Jackson said. “Just from the defensive line, the linebackers, the secondary, how they’re flying around and disguising defenses — making it look like one coverage, but it’s something else — and how they time up their blitzes, it helps us out a lot, because when we’re playing other teams, they’re flying around and giving us their best shot. It’s like we’re seeing one of the best defenses every day.”
Both defenses are coming off standout performances in Week 9, as the Browns allowed 58 total yards while recording their first shutout since 2007 in beating the Arizona Cardinals 27-0.
