Winless Cleveland head to Baltimore

27 September 2012 13:46:28 EST

The Cleveland Browns take on the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night in a game that will be over shadowed by the return of the regular referees to the NFL.

Late Wednesday a deal was struck between the league office and the officials that they had locked out for the immediate return of the experienced referees.

First up is the game at M & T Stadium in Baltimore where the Ravens welcome in the struggling Browns.

Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco is off to an impressive start and anything other than an easy victory would be considered something of an upset for the Ravens who defeated the New England Patriots by a single point last Sunday.

The Browns, who have lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills in the first three weeks of the season look to be heading for an 0-6 start with a visit to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford to play the New York Giants next week, followed by a rematch with the Bengals.

Cincinnati, who top the AFC North Division along with the Ravens after the first three weeks of the season are in Jacksonville to play the Jaguars.

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert has struggled for the hosts, but has avoided any big mistakes with a combined 40-79 over three games with four touchdowns and no picks in two losses and a win last week over the Indianapolis Colts.

Pittsburgh, who lost in Oakland last week, gets the week off as they join the Colts with the early bye in Week 4.

Meanwhile defending champions the New York Giants are 1000/1 to win the NFL Superbowl, while San Francisco 49ers can be backed at 2/9.
