As the days wind down before the Browns' matchup Sunday with the Ravens, we're checking out what they're saying in Baltimore about the game.
Any loss would annoy me, bother me, it definitely did. That was the last loss we had. We definitely want to come and get a victory. We know they want to sweep us. We’re the Ravens. We’re having so much success this year. That’s what everybody wants to do. Beat us. Ravens QB Lamar Jackson
It ate at us for a while and I feel like it’s still eating at us. I feel like going out there and knocking out the run will put us over the top, but we’re always going to think about that big run in the back of our heads. Ravens LB Patrick Onwuasor
Nick hurt us badly in the first game. They do a good job of blocking. They do a good job of scheming up the run game. But also, he’s really special. He’s really fast. He’s really big, and he can accelerate with the best of them. He’s a tackle-breaker. He has good one-cut ability, laterally, to make a guy miss, and he can lower his pads. So, I really do believe he’s one of the best backs in football. Kareem Hunt complements him really well, very talented. He’s another starting-level back. They’re a little different in their style, and they use them accordingly. So, we’ll have to have all hands on deck to stop those two guys. Ravens coach John Harbaugh
Anytime you can lock a one seed, you get a first-round bye and you know you’re at home. That’s huge, and it’s a huge advantage for us. It’s something that we’re going to be focusing on accomplishing this week. Ravens RB Mark Ingram
It feels like forever ago, and so, we can't really dwell on that old game. But we have to go back and watch what we did wrong and what they had success with. But yes, I think the makeup of this team is different. The energy and the feel is different, but it's one game at a time. It's one game each week, and we just have to become 1-0 this week. And whatever we have to do, every man possible out there has to do whatever they have to do to become 1-0. Ravens LB Matthew Judon
After allowing 500-plus yards in back-to-back games for the first time in franchise history in losses to the Chiefs and Browns, the Ravens were ranked 27th in defense. Since then, the Ravens have allowed the second-fewest points in the league and currently have the league’s sixth-ranked defense. BaltimoreRavens.com
Running the ball, throwing the ball, protecting better – especially throwing the ball. We have increased in everything, just all-around team effort. We've just been going at it. We compete our butts off with one another to make each other better, because we know we have a great offense and a great defense. So, when we face anyone outside of the building, we know it's game over. We know what we can do, so we've just been having success at all attributes. So, we're just going to keep it going. Jackson, on how the Ravens have improved since facing the Browns
