Browns vs Ravens Game Thread

Whatever happened to Monday Night Football's marquis matchups?

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Monday Night Football, week 12. Talk about matchup nightmares, this one is about as bad a late season football matchup as it gets. I'm sure when the NFL's schedule makers put together this matchup in the offseason they envisioned a bruising AFC North grudge match with major playoff implications. What they got instead is a game between bottom dwellers playing for draft position. With Joe Flacco done for the season due to injury and Johnny Bench Manziel out with a serious brain muscle pull, even the quarterbacks generate no excitement in this game. McCown vs. Schaub. Yay. I guess we can talk about the former Browns franchise vs. the current Browns franchise grudge match. Yeah, that definitely lends an aura of excitement and mystery to this game. Oh well, it's still football. Better than the seven months of the year we don't have any games that matter I suppose.

Enjoy the game everybody. Discuss the game here. The usual rules apply. Do not ask for links to illegal broadcasts of games. Do not provide them either.
