-Cris Collinsworth and Al Michaels became the announcing team for Sunday Night Football in 2009. The last time the Browns played a Sunday night game was in 2008, though, which means the duo has never called a Cleveland game. That changes this week, as they will be doing Thursday Night Football. It’s NBC’s turn to take over production of the Thursday night package after CBS handled it the first half of the year.
-Browns head coach Hue Jackson was the Ravens' quarterbacks coach from 2008-2009. Associate head coach Pep Hamilton was a pro personnel intern for the Ravens in 2002. Senior offensive assistant Al Saunders was with the Ravens' coaching staff from 2009-2010.
-Ravens RB Terrance West was drafted by the Browns in 2014. He was traded to the Titans at the beginning of last season, but joined Baltimore before the end of the year.
-Ravens Executive VP and GM Ozzie Newsome was a Browns tight end from 1978 to 1990, and an executive until the team moved in 1995. Senior Personnel Assistant George Kokinis was the Browns' GM in 2009. Associate Head Coach/Special Teams Coordinator Jerry Rosburg was the Browns' special teams coordinator from 2001-2006. Offensive coordinator Marc Trestman was Cleveland's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 1988 to 1989. Defensive line coach Joe Cullen held the same position for Cleveland in 2013.
-Appearing in Thursday’s game would mark CB Tramon Williams’ 150th career game.
-The last time these two teams was on September 18th, 2016 in Cleveland, when the Ravens defeated the Browns by a score of 25-20. Josh McCown made the start, replacing the injured Robert Griffin III, and got the team off to a 20-0 start with three first quarter touchdown drives. When trying to go for the extra point on the third touchdown, it was blocked and returned all the way for two points, making it a 20-2 game.
That was the start of the team’s unraveling. It was 20-13 at halftime, and Cleveland couldn’t muster much offense in the second half. McCown was leading a comeback drive in the final moments of the game, though, and wide receiver Terrelle Pryor had made a nice catch that would’ve given the club four shots at the end zone from around the ten yard line. However, the officials made a horrible call by flagging Pryor for unsportsmanlike conduct when he tossed the ball toward the official, but the ball landed on a Ravens defender instead. That pushed the Browns back, and McCown had to throw up a prayer that was picked off to seal their fate.
