The strength of the crowd is clear, as Beatdown readers have moved up to second in the standings. Vote for all the Week 5 games in the polls at the bottom of this article.Current standings:Kyle A., Kyle B., Sage and VasFrank, Jake and readersLoganZachDustinAn analysis of the Baltimore Beatdown staff picksConsensus winnersPatriots defeat the Colts (NE -10.0)Titans beat the Bills (TEN -3.5)Bengals secure a victory against the Dolphins (CIN -6.5)After decimating the 3-0 Dolphins last week, New England is back on track in predictable Patriots fashion. While Andrew Luck has exceeded expectations http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/nick-boyle-jersey... , Indianapolis is still a step behind. After defeating the Vikings in Week 3, Buffalo returned to their mediocrity, getting shut out 22-0 by the Packers in Week 4. Tennessee is on a three game win streak after defeating the Eagles in overtime. Those who doubted Miami’s hot start were validated by their definitive loss to New England. Meanwhile, Cincinnati has put up over 30 points in three of their four games.‘Lone wolf’ picksZach predicts the Redskins will beat the Saints on Monday Night Football (NO -6.5)Dustin thinks the Raiders will get their second win of the season against the Chargers (LAC -5.0)Logan believes the Seahawks will spoil the Rams undefeated campaign (LAR -7.0)With Washington fresh off their bye week and a big time win over Green Bay in Week 3, they have a chance to hand the Saints their second loss of the season. The Chargers will look to improve to 2-1 in the battle for California against an Oakland team that barely slipped past the Browns for their first victory in 2018. The Seahawks needed a late field goal to beat an Arizona team that is on the fast track to securing the number on overall pick in the 2019 draft. It is hard to envision their offensive line affording Russell Wilson the protection he will need to win a shoot out against Jared Goff and company. New and improved Browns?On paper, Cleveland is 1-2-1, but psychologically the Browns are miles away from their 2017 squad. Cleveland has forced overtime in two of their four games and trailed by just three points in both of their losses. Cleveland’s progress is reflected in the point spread for Sunday’s game.In Week 2 of 2017, the Ravens were 7.5 point favorites http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-joh... , defeating the Browns 24-10 at home. In Week 15, Baltimore was favored by 6.5 points on the road, this time winning 27-10. With Baltimore favored at -3.0 for Sunday, the margin is much slimmer compared to last season, and two Baltimore Beatdown contributors predict the Browns to derail the Ravens winning streak.

Browns safety Jabrill Peppers clarified what he meant a day after calling Cleveland sports fans “wishy-washy.” Or he tried to anyway.“So that’s one thing I notice about Cleveland sports, you guys are very, very wishy-washy,” Peppers told the Chronicle-Telegram in Elyria Tavon Young Jersey , Ohio, earlier this week. “If it ain’t going right immediately, calling for heads, calling for jobs.”To his credit, Peppers didn’t try to say he was misquoted. Instead, Peppers said Thursday he was referring to the environment surrounding an NFL team.“Obviously I wasn’t talking about the fans as a whole, more so the environment of an NFL franchise,” Peppers said Terrell Suggs Jersey , via Pat McManamon. “We understand the city of Cleveland loves their Browns and wants to see us get back to how it’s supposed to be. That’s just the NFL. They love you when you’re doing good or not so much when you’re not.”Peppers, a first-round pick in 2017 who has played only 48.5 percent of the defensive snaps this season, said he encounters hostility “every time I go out” in Cleveland. “I love how passionate the fans are,” Peppers said. “Part of what I get is my fault. I’m not playing up to my potential and they see that as well so you can’t fault people for feeling how they feel. You just go to take it with a grain of salt and do what you’ve got to do to get better.”
