Here's a matchup to watch in Sunday's Browns-Ravens game:
Browns WRs Joshua Cribbs and Mohamed Massaquoi vs. Ravens CBs Chris Carr and Fabian Washington
Cribbs, who leads the team in receiving yards, figures to start with Brian Robiskie (hamstring) doubtful. Both receivers have long TDs this season, with Massaquoi hauling in a 41-yard score in Week One and Cribbs breaking free for a 65-yard touchdown last Sunday.
The Ravens allowed just 159 net yards passing in Week Two, with Bengals QB Carson Palmer completing just 16-of-35 passes. Most impressively for Baltimore, Bengals WRs Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco combined for seven catches out of 20 targets.
The Browns figure to test Carr and Washington, as well as second-year CB Lardarius Webb, who played as a reserve last week in his first game back from a December injury. Note that QB Seneca Wallace, likely to get another start in place of Jake Delhomme (ankle), threw deep 10 times last week, with the connection to Cribbs the only completion. Seven of those attempts came in the first half.
