NFL WEEK 4

Greg Cote’s Thursday NFL pick

BROWNS (0-3) at RAVENS (2-1)

Line: BAL by 13.

Cote’s pick: BAL 27-10.

TV: 8:20 p.m., NFL Network.

The first of nine division games during Week 4 is the latest edition of the Art Modell Bowl. It finds these cities only about 300 miles apart geographically, but a million miles apart in the NFL strata. Young Brownies might be worst team in league (4-15 under Pat Shurmur), while Ravens are thinking Super Bowl. There isn’t a doubt who’ll win. Baltimore has won 12 consecutive home games and eight in a row in this series, while Cleveland has dropped 11 consecutive division roadies. That point spread is a tough call, though. The Crows are two TDs better than the Earthtones, but Baltimore is coming off a hugely emotional one-point Sunday night triumph over New England, so a natural letdown is in play here. Still, even coasting, I like the homies to cover.
