Browns D can be tough at times and road game, but Flacco can get it going at any time, it seems.
Eli actually wasn't the problem last week, but Texans aren't going to make life easier.

Flacco has a new favorite target in Steve Smith. Going against a Browns team that has been putting up and giving up points, I expect a solid shoot out performance from both teams. Flacco should perform well against Cleveland in Week 3.
Manning looks like a lame duck in 2014. Until he can figure out the new-look offense he is no more than a waiver wire pickup to help out during severe bye-week or quarterback injury situations.
