It is no secret that Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski is not afraid to take chances despite 2020 being his first go-round on the sideline for the AFC North franchise. With such a notion once again being reaffirmed on Monday evening against the rival Baltimore Ravens, Stefanski almost immediately dipped into his bag of tricks as a trick-play and pass out of the hand of wide receiver Jarvis Landry ultimately helped Cleveland find the end zone on its opening drive.

Although Landry’s connection with running back Nick Chubb did not result in a touchdown, the Browns would score several plays later with the third-year rusher taking it in from a few yards out via the ground game.

It is also worth noting that Stefanski definitely likes giving Landry, who is left-handed and gives the defense a stranger look than usual, the chance to utilize his arm as the Browns called a very similar play just last week against the Tennessee Titans. Not only did Landry complete a pass to quarterback Baker Mayfield in Week 13 against the Titans, but he even got Tennessee called for a roughing the passer penalty.

Unfortunately for Stefanski and the Browns, though, the Ravens would quickly answer to knot the game at seven points apiece.

The Browns are trying to fend off the Ravens for second place in the AFC North, which would clearly ensure Cleveland a playoff spot and give the Browns a chance to make their first Super Bowl.

Yet, the value of this game for the Browns goes beyond holding off Baltimore to secure second place in the AFC North. The Browns could move within one game of the Pittsburgh Steelers for first place, after Pittsburgh lost to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football, part of a two-game losing streak. Cleveland hosts the Steelers in Week 17, which — if Cleveland is just one game back at that point in time — could give the Browns a division championship and the No. 2 seed in the AFC behind the Kansas City Chiefs.
