The AFC North division is arguably one of the best divisions in the NFL right now, with four teams that can make a legitimate case to be in the NFL playoffs this year.
The Baltimore Ravens already showed that they can beat one of their divisional opponents, as they were able to come out on top against Joe Burrow and company in Week 2.
In Week 4, the stakes get a bit higher against the Cleveland Browns, who might be the best team in the division right now.
Unfortunately for the Ravens, Baltimore will have to head into this game with some key players stuck sitting on the sideline watching, according to the team’s injury report on Friday.

The Ravens could potentially be without 11 players during Sunday’s divisional showdown against the Browns, with the most notable names arguably being Rashon Bateman, Odell Beckham Jr., and Marlon Humphrey.
Being without these players on both sides of the football could prove costly against a good Browns team that is hoping to be sitting atop the AFC North standings with a 3-1 record after this weekend.
Along with the Ravens being incredibly banged up heading into this matchup with the Browns, Cleveland might be without star quarterback Deshaun Watson on Sunday.
Watson is currently dealing with a shoulder injury and is currently listed as questionable for Week 4 against their division rivals.
If Watson sits out with the shoulder injury, it might make it more of an even playing field for the Ravens, but the veteran quarterback has yet to be ruled out.NEXT: Ravens Have Signed A New Veteran LB
