When the Browns play the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday, it may very well mark the defining moment of our season. A win is not out of the question due to the offensive potential displayed over the past two weeks. A win would mean the Browns would be 2-2, with a 2-1 record in the division, meaning we'd own tiebreakers over the Bengals and the Ravens. With the Browns facing all three division opponents at home in the first four games, going 1-2 in those games would be unacceptable. Without one person though, it may be impossible to reach that goal.
Kellen Winslow suffered a bruised shoulder on the Browns' final drive of the game versus the Oakland Raiders. Winslow insists he'll be fine, but the reports regarding his status have been quite vague.
Winslow will be extensively limited in practice, as will linebacker Antwaan Peek, arguably our "best" (for what it's worth) defensive player through three weeks.
Tonight, I'll have my recap of this past Sunday's crushing loss. Then on Thursday, it'll be time to analyze the problems with our defense.
