Short week. Divisional "rival" on tap. A chance to vault themselves into first place after having a rough go of things the last month. You'd think the Baltimore Ravens would have been pretty goddamn focused last night. You'd assume they'd take a business-like approach to what could (in some other universe where the Browns are capable of victory) have been a trap game...
Nah. Instead they choose to use the national spotlight to put together a montage of the latest online craze sweeping social media. It's almost like John Harbaugh walked into the locker room 15 minutes prior to kickoff to discuss the keys to the game and wrote "finish your blocks, don't miss tackles, celebrate every big play by temporarily freezing in front of the nearest camera" in permanent marker on the dry erase board. Do you understand how confident a team has to be that they are going to win a game - in a ridiculously unpredictable league - that during said game they make sure to film scenes for a viral video that they would get crucified for posting after a loss? And the funny thing is that I'm not even hating on the Ravens for doing it.
This is a complete indictment of the Cleveland Browns. The most entertaining thing they can provide their viewers is their opponent's postgame tweet that was only possible because of their guaranteed incompetence. And I thought having 5 different players play quarterback at the mid-point of the season was embarrassing. That's nothing compared to one professional sports franchise treating another like they're good for nothing more than retweets at their expense.
