- Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome was selected by the Browns in the first round (23rd overall) of the 1978 NFL Draft and was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999. After his playing career, Newsome got his start in the front office with the Browns’ pro personnel department from 1991-95.

- These two teams last squared in the regular season off on November 10, 2016, when the Ravens won 28-7 on Thursday Night Football. Cleveland actually led the game 7-6 at the half, with Cody Kessler making the start. Not pleased with his unwillingness to push the ball downfield, head coach Hue Jackson benched Kessler for Josh McCown after one series in the second half. While the idea might have been good, McCown was a disaster, throwing three interceptions as Baltimore piled it on, out-gaining Cleveland 396 yards to 144 yards during the game.
