Baker Mayfield may have discovered why the Baltimore Ravens defense
has been so effective this season.Mayfield Youth Nick Chubb Jersey , a rookie quarterback with the Cleveland Browns, faces Baltimore's second-ranked defense on Sunday. One of the members of that unit, safety Tony Jefferson, received a text message this week from Mayfield — one former Oklahoma star reaching out to another."He said, 'I'm watching this film, watching you guys hold,'" Mayfield wrote, according to Jefferson.Jefferson said he replied: "They didn't call it."Jefferson believes Baltimore's success on defense can be attributed to skilled players following a solid game plan."I just think we've been doing a good job executing," Jefferson said Wednesday. "We've worked hard throughout the week on what we want to attack and what we want to do."Operating under first-year defensive coordinator Don Martindale Youth David Njoku Jersey , Baltimore (3-1) has limited the opposition to 275.8 yards per game, a meager 29.8 success rate on third down and is yielding only 16.25 points per game.Most impressive of all, the Ravens have not yet given up a touchdown in the second half. While the players enjoy doing it, they're not fond of hearing about it."We didn't even know it was a stat until you all brought it up," linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "It's kind of like a pitcher with a no-hitter. Thanks for bringing it up. Good job."Coach John Harbaugh broke it down this way: "The guys have gone out and played really well. That's really what it is. They've executed, make plays, turned it over a few times, stopped the run."A solid unit should get even better this week with the return of cornerback Jimmy Smith, who missed the first four weeks of the season serving a suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Now in his eighth season , Smith will probably step right back into the starting lineup if he's ready by Sunday."We'll just have to see in practice how he looks and feels. I mean, he hasn't been here in four weeks," Harbaugh said. "He says he's been training and I'm sure he has. It will be fun to watch him play."Although Brandon Carr and Marlon Humphrey have done well as starters, Harbaugh knows you can never have too many solid cornerbacks."It's going to be great to have all those guys that are good cover players," he said. "We can play any coverage we want, the way we want. It gives us a lot of options on defense."The Ravens bottled up veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday night in a 26-14 victory over the Steelers. Pittsburgh went 2 for 12 on third down overall and was held to 47 yards in offense in the second half."I feel like you give up 47 yards in the second half and shut out the Pittsburgh Steelers, that is noteworthy to say the least," Harbaugh said.The next challenge is trying to stop a bold rookie in Mayfield, who has been playing with confidence since making his debut two weeks ago."Ben's seen it all , but Baker Mayfield is pretty advanced," Harbaugh said. "I don't think he's a rookie in the true sense. He seems like he's got a real good feel for the game." The Cleveland Browns made a roster move on Thursday, signing free agent linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong. In a corresponding transaction, the Browns released linebacker Xavier Woodson-Luster, who was spotted on special teams last Sunday against Tampa Bay, while also logging a lone defensive snap where he did not record a statistic. The club announced the moves on the team website.Armstrong opened the season with the New York Giants, but was released on Wednesday after reaching an injury settlement with the team. He was placed on injured reserve with a concussion sustained in New York’s Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.The 6-foot-3 and 220-pound Armstrong totaled 20 tackles for the Giants before his injury. A six-year veteran, Armstrong has also played for the Rams when the team was in St.Louis, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers. It would seem that Armstrong is ticketed for special teams play with the Browns Authentic Chris Hubbard Jersey , but he may have a talent that would prove useful to his new team.A safety in college at the University of Miami, Armstrong has shown some success in pass coverage, an area that Browns lack on a regular basis from their linebackers. Armstrong talked about that aspect of his game in a 2017 article by Patricia Traina at starting middle linebacker Joe Schobert expected to miss his second consecutive game with a hamstring injury this Sunday when the Browns face the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Browns need to find a way to give Jamie Collins and Christian Kirksey - who both played the entire game against the Buccaneers - a breather. If the coaching staff believes that Armstrong is up to the task, he may see the field on passing downs come Sunday at Heinz Field. Custom Cleveland Browns Jerseys
