    In my opinion, the Browns looked scary good today. This was the Browns team that I expected to see at the start of the season and they have impressed me more than anyone else today. Based on what they have done so far, I believe it’s going to be which Cleveland team shows up the rest of the season in their games. If they play the rest of the way like they did today, they will win a lot more games. If not, who knows. Either way, I believe that they made a pretty clear statement today of who will win the AFC North.

    The play calling and line was much improved today.

    There are several teams that have had some shaky starts. I know some of these QBs didn't play 10 plays in the preseason. I just wonder if coaches are being too cautious in preseason at the expense of being ready to go come game 1.

    I think so and could very well be a cause of some of the early struggles.

    Huge win for the Browns.

    My bet with my buddy that they'll win the division is looking better now.

    Saw this on Adam Schefter's Twitter:

    Sunday also marked first time in franchise history they had a 300-yard passer (Baker Mayfield), 150-yard rusher (Nick Chubb) and 150-yard receiver (Jarvis Landry).

    Baltimore's miserable tackling helped this one considerably in the portion of the game I saw.

    After three weeks of olympian performances, Lamar Jackson was human today.

    Bad combination.

    The lack of weapons he has was glaring today. Not to mention Cleveland bullied the Raven's offensive line.

    Very true on the tackling.

    With Jackson, I thought he was more "human" last week. The passing yard numbers didn't come across that way, but in watching the Chiefs game, he heaved up a couple of ill-advised blinding Hail Mary type passes that Ravens' receivers came down with.

    He was better yesterday but the rest of the team was not ready. The Ravens are extremely flawed, but I like the upside with Jackson at the helm. Love teams that can run the rock like they do.

    Still not sure what to make out of the Browns. In watching them closely all season, this was the only game I was remotely impressed. They are undisciplined, full of themselves, and terribly coached. I don't want to lose my mind because of one good game out of four.

    Good news for both teams is they are the only two with a legit shot at bringing home the division trophy. Might be a win by default type of season.

    Yeah this is a "the AFC North champion could head into the playoffs with a 9-7 record" kind of season.
