Browns vs. Ravens:  Ways Cleveland Can Avoid a Repeat of Week 13's Loss

A December 24 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens isn't what any Cleveland Browns fan wants for Christmas, but of course, we're not a fanbase who has had much success in getting our wishes granted. 

On Christmas Eve, as Santa gears up for the biggest night of his year, the Browns will be playing their second-last game of 2011, looking for an upset of the playoff-bound Ravens in order to match their five-win total from last year. 

It doesn't look good for the Browns, who have yet to win a game against an AFC North divisional opponent this season and who had a terrible game against Baltimore in Week 13, a 24-10 loss that was sadly a far more sound beating for the Browns than the scoreboard indicated. 

A win for the Browns isn't totally out of the question, but it would probably take a Christmas miracle to pull it off. 

Following are the keys to the game for the Browns that should give them a shot at an upset or at least allow them to keep the score close if they can execute them properly.
