Quick Take: Browns (5-4) at Ravens (4-5)

Last meeting
In Week 4, Cleveland beat the Ravens 27-14. QB Derek Anderson passed for 204 yards and two touchdowns, including a 78-yard strike to WR Braylon Edwards to help the Browns improve to 2-2.

The Ravens have won four of the last six games and lead the overall series 11-6.

Last week
Cleveland raced out to a 21-9 halftime lead against the Steelers and then the offense got stuck in neutral. The Steelers came back, took the lead and Phil Dawson's missed 53-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining sealed the Browns' fate. Baltimore's offense was held to 272 total yards and was shut down for much of a 21-7 loss to the Bengals.

At stake
Depsite last week's AFC North loss, the Browns, with a favorable schedule down the stretch, are still in the playoff hunt. The Ravens are searching for some consistency on offense and look to stop a three-game skid.

Key matchup
Baltimore RB Willis McGahee vs. Browns rush defense. McGahee rushed for 104 yards in Week 4 against a Cleveland defense ranked among the worst in the league. The Ravens need him to duplicate that effort to take the pressure off Kyle Boller, who gets the start for the injured and struggling Steve McNair. McGahee hasn't had a 100-yard rushing game since Week 7.

Did you know?
Cleveland TE Kellen Winslow leads NFL tight ends with 703 receiving yards. Winslow had four catches for 96 yards in the last meeting vs. Baltimore. He has 14 career first-down catches vs. Baltimore (most vs. any opponent). ... Josh Cribbs, who had two kickoff returns last week measuring at least 90 yards, aims for his 10th straight game with a kick return of at least 30 yards.
