Lee's Keys 11.30.15: Baltimore #Ravens @ Cleveland #Browns

By @cleeverizon

- STOP THE RUN: Even with Justin Forsett being gone for the season, the Browns are still the 32nd ranked defense versus the run. Buck Allen and former Browns running back Terrance West are expected to see a lot of work. West is going to return to Cleveland with a chip on his shoulder and a point to prove. Earlier this week, West said "I'm hungry, just getting this opportunity, I'm very hungry, and this Monday you'll see."

- CREATE CONFUSION: Matt Schaub hasn't started a NFL game in two years. The Ravens will assume they have the "tape" on the Browns defense. We must show multiple fronts and coverages to keep Schaub "guessing" and not "knowing" the defenders will be at. Zone blitzes, delayed blitzes, stunts and zones will help create havoc.

- NO CHUNKS: The Browns defense has been decimated by giving up chunk plays both on the ground and in the air. Setting the edge and making sure the defensive backs have over the top coverage will be key.

- Flex Gary Barnidge/Duke Johnson Create room in the box to open up running lanes, line Gary Barnidge up outside to take that linebacker out of the picture. Johnson can also be used in a dual running back set. Go in motion to free up a additional lane for Isaiah Crowell to run through. A tight end screen or two will also slow up the pass rush.  

- SPECIAL TEAMS: The Browns need to make something happen via special teams from creating a turnover or running a kickoff/punt back for a touchdown.
