The Browns might not be ready to contend in the AFC North yet, but after starting off 0-5 they have won two of their past three, including a 34-24 win over Cincinnati. And with 19 rookies or second-year players on the roster, this is a young team that might be starting to hit its stride just in time for the Ravens' visit on Sunday.
Here are some other enlightening numbers about the Browns:
0 : Number of times John Harbaugh, Ray Rice and Joe Flacco have lost to Cleveland. Since 2008, when those three arrived, the Ravens are 9-0, including a 23-16 win in Baltimore this year.
2.7: Ray Rice's average gain in the first meeting between the teams this season (18 carries, 49 yards). That was his lowest per-carry average in nine games against the Browns.
4: The number of games Browns cornerback Joe Haden missed earlier this season while suspended for a violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. He missed the first meeting with the Ravens, but the Browns are 2-1 since his return and Ravens coach John Harbaugh calls Haden "a difference-maker."
5: The number of dropped passes for Browns receiver Greg Little, which is tied for seventh-most in the league. It has been a recurring problem for Browns receivers, especially Little, and was in the first meeting between the Ravens and Browns as well.
7: Number of field goals of 50 yards or longer Browns kicker Phil Dawson made last season (in eight attempts). In the first meeting betwen the Browns and Ravens this season, Dawson was 3-for-3, hitting from 50, 51 and 52 yards.
8: Career kickoff return touchdowns for Josh Cribbs, the most in NFL history. Cribbs, who had a 92-yard kickoff return touchdown against the Ravens in 2008 and a punt return touchdown against them last season, left the first game against the Ravens this season after being hurt on a punt return. He is back, though, and ranks fourth in kickoff returns with an average runback of 30.3 yards.
10: Number of interceptions thrown by Browns quartberback Brandon Weeden, tied for second in the league. But he's thrown just one in the past three games, a total of 97 passes.
13: Number of seasons Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome played for the Browns. The Hall of Fame tight end finished his Browns career with 662 catches for 7,980 yards, a team record.
19: Number of sacks by the Browns, seven more than by the Ravens. Former Maryland linebacker D'Qwell Jackson leads the Browns with three sacks.
19.3: The Browns' scoring average, which ranks 25th in the league.
41: Forecast high temperature in Cleveland on Sunday. Weather is often a factor when you play on the shores of Lake Erie in November or December.
