Know Your Opponent Week 1 – Baltimore Ravens

The Cleveland Browns open the 2020 season against one of their division rivals and the defending AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens.

The Browns and Ravens split the season series last year with the Browns taking the matchup in Week 4 with a 40-25 win and the Ravens getting their revenge in Week 16 with a 31-15 win.

Of course the rivalry runs deep between the cities more than the franchises as the Ravens are the original Cleveland Browns franchise that left the city of Cleveland following the 1995 when former owner Art Modell moved the team after a battle between the team and city over stadium renovations.
