The Cleveland Browns always have had trouble stopping the Ravens with quarterback Joe Flacco.
Winless after three games this season, the Browns are winless against Baltimore in eight tries since Flacco's arrival in 2008.
Now they've got to contend with the no-huddle offense.
"The (no-huddle) is always a little strain on the defense, but if you line up and you're prepared, they'll stop going to it," said safety T.J. Ward told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "The no-huddle is no-huddle. We'll deal with it."
Cornerback Dimitri Patterson noted that Ravens receiver Torrey Smith's tendency to make big plays is the key.
"Their vertical passing game has come alive the past couple of weeks. A lot of Smith's success has come from 20-plus (-yard) catches. Last week, he has a couple over 30. We're going to have to eliminate that," Patterson said.
Steelers: Fortunately for them, the issue with linebacker James Harrison's surgically repaired left knee flared up during a bye week. Still, it looks like he won't be in uniform for the Oct. 7 game vs. the Philadelphia Eagles. "It's a little bit of a setback," said agent Bill Parise told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Hopefully, it's not something that will derail our plans."
Harrison, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, missed most of spring practice and had cartilage removed Aug. 15 to help control the swelling.
He is being replaced at outside linebacker by second-year player Chris Carter and Jason Worilds, in his third year.
Hard-hitting safety Troy Polamalu has practiced this week and appears close to returning from a calf injury that has kept him out of the last two games, the Post-Gazette said.
Bengals: A secondary that has had trouble all season is looking even worse with starting cornerbacks Leon Hall and Nate Clements sitting out practice Wednesday.
Hall missed last week's game vs. the Washington Redskins with a hamstring injury. Clements has a calf injury and has been wearing a walking boot earlier this week.
Adam Jones and Terence Newman likely will start in their place Sunday vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars if they can't play.
