BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns rookies Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson are about to face one of the NFL's toughest tests -- on the road, on national TV, in Baltimore.
The winless Browns will play the Ravens and their vaunted defense on Thursday night, just four days after losing at home to Buffalo. It will be the first meeting for Weeden and Richardson with Ravens star linebacker Ray Lewis and safety Ed Reed.
Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress said talking about Lewis and Reed is one thing, but "you don't get it until one of those guys gets right in your grill, and then you get it."
Weeden and Richardson both played well in Cleveland's first road game, a 34-27 loss at Cincinnati.
