Week 16 of the NFL regular season finds the second-place Baltimore Ravens on the road against division rival, Cleveland in a must-win game for the Ravens as they hope to keep pace with co-division leader, Pittsburgh, who won 27-3 over the hapless Carolina Panthers Thursday night.
For Baltimore, they must win their final two games on the road at Cleveland and at home vs Cincinnati to claim the No. 2 seed in the AFC and get a much-deserved bye and some rest and hope for a Pittsburgh loss.
For the Browns it is all about playing spoiler at this point, and if you're a Cleveland fan, wouldn't it be sweet to spoil the season's of Cleveland's two most hated rivals in Baltimore and Pittsburgh?
Cleveland currently at 5-9 is led by rookie QB Colt McCoy who in his first game back form missing the last three games due to a high ankle sprain threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns in a 19-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
For the season, McCoy is 2-4 as a starter and has thrown for 1,218 yards, for five touchdowns and three interceptions for a QB rating of 93.0
For the Raven's they are led by third-year Delaware standout, Joe Flacco who has really begun to emerge as one of the best QB's in the NFL, for the season, Flacco has led the ravens to a 10-4 mark and has thrown for 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions for 3,395 yards and a 94.8 QB rating.
A lot of questions for Cleveland and Baltimore may be answered in this game.
Will this be the beginning of the end for embattled Cleveland head coach Eric Mangini? Suppose the Browns lose, then a media firestorm will be unleashed that may possible engulf him.
If the Browns win on Sunday and in the season finale against Pittsburgh, does Mangini get retained or will Holmgren decide to go in a different direction?
How will McCoy handle playing at home in the cold winds and elements? Can Cleveland Browns halfback Peyton Hillis regain his form or has the rest of the NFL finally caught up to him?
For the Ravens can they finally get featured tailback, Ray Rice untracked? What about the Ravens secondary will they clamp down and start to gel in time for the playoffs?
Will Joe Flacco continue to torch Cleveland's secondary as he did in Baltimore?
I guess we will have to wait till gameday to find out.
Check back for live updates on Sunday.
