‘Twas the day after Thanksgiving, and there are turkey leftovers and shopping in your plans, but the Cleveland Browns are getting ready to travel to Baltimore.
Speaking of the Ravens game, please check out my TikTok recorded yesterday giving two reasons Browns fans should be thankful.
Here are the news and notes for Black Friday, November 26.
1. Thursday Injury Report

The good news is that the Browns only had two players who did not practice on Thursday.
They are center JC Tretter and wide receiver Anthony Schwartz.
The other good news is that wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones practiced on a limited basis.
Quarterback Baker Mayfield was a full participant in practice.
Getting players healthy for this Ravens game is vital for the Browns.
2. Browns Vs. Raiders 20 Years Ago
It is clear that the Browns want to turn back time to a great Browns vs. Ravens game of yesteryear.
The team released vault footage of the Browns at Ravens game from 20 years ago on its Twitter account yesterday.
The Browns were impressive on offense and defense on November 18, 2001 and defeated the Ravens.
Hopefully, the same mojo exists on Sunday night.

3. Browns Come In As Underdogs
Every Twitter poll has the Ravens winning this game.
As usual, not everyone agrees with the polls.
Now, sure Baltimore’s record of 7–3 is technically better than Cleveland’s 6–5. But those number don’t tell the entire story.#CLEvsBAL

Oddsmakers have the Ravens as 3.5 point favorites.
4. Update on Ravens QB Lamar Jackson
Jackson was a full participant in practice on Thursday.
That was the second consecutive day he practiced with no limitations.
When asked by reporters about he is feeling, Jackson said:
“I’m feeling good. I’m feeling great this time. Dang. I’m feeling good…Positive, certain. No relapses. We’re good.”
Jackson also talked about his flu-like symptoms which were not COVID-19 related.
“I just got fatigued, caught some little chills. I was out of it. But I’m good now. I’m perfect. I’m feeling great.”
Ravens fans are expecting a big day from Jackson.

The Browns defense and Joe Woods had better be ready.
