The winless Cleveland Browns will search for their first victory of the season when they play the Baltimore Ravens at the M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday.
Browns are 0-9 this season, and with just a handful of games remaining, the last thing they will want is to finish the campaign without a single victory. To avoid that and make something of what is essentially another write-off campaign, the Browns will hope to trip up the 4-4 Ravens at their own backyard.
While the quick turnaround from Sunday is difficult for both teams, what Cleveland will hope is that it allows them that slight window of opportunity of catching the Baltimore side off guard and a bit unprepared.
"It is pretty tough because guys on both sides, no matter who is playing on a Thursday night game, you might be banged up from weeks ago and you are still fighting it," wide receiver Terrelle Pryor said.
"It is tough because it is a quick turnaround, and your best friend is days off and extra days so I think that is a big factor. Obviously, you don't have the days to study like you do normally, but we will see."
The Browns gave the Ravens a real contest in Week 2, with the latter coming up trumps 25-20 in the end, and while Cleveland will hope to have a bigger impact in this game, they will be up against a Baltimore team, who picked up a morale-boosting win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend.
That win snapped a four-game losing streak and the key was the return of linebacker CJ Mosley. The Ravens will hope their defence stays strong again, when they play the Browns.
What will also be important is how the Ravens offence, under Joe Flacco, plays. With the Browns defence ranked 31st in the NFL, there won't be a better opportunity for Baltimore to get their offence running smoothly again.
"We just have to keep staying confident and not lose that belief in ourselves, and get down on ourselves," Flacco said. "We have to realize that we're in a good position. A lot can come from it."
