Here's a matchup to watch in Sunday's Browns-Ravens game:

Browns safeties Abram Elam and T.J. Ward  vs. Ravens TE Todd Heap 

The 6-5, 247-pound Heap runs well. The Ravens can move him around to create mismatches. He played a key role in Baltimore's Week One win at the Jets, catching six passes for 72 yards, including a 35-yarder when he beat Jets S Jim Leonhard. 

Ward, a second-round pick, has impressed early in his pro career, recording 11 tackles in each of his first two NFL games. Heap has a significant size advantage on him, but Ward runs fairly well. Elam is stronger against the run than the pass.
