1. Quarterback Josh McCown returns to the Browns’ starting lineup after Johnny Manziel was demoted to third team after partying during the bye week and then lying about it to coach Mike Pettine when videos and pictures surfaced on the internet. Manziel’s lack of maturity and childish behavior is getting old with the coaching staff, and Pettine made the decision to re-insert McCown as the No. 1 quarterback and place Austin Davis as the No. 2.

2. The Browns (2-8) and Ravens (3-7) are both having terrible seasons. The Ravens visit Cleveland with starting quarterback Joe Flacco and starting running back Justin Forsett out for the remainder of the season after each were injured last Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Flacco is sidelined with a knee injury and Forsett is out with an arm injury. Monday will be the first game Flacco has missed in his NFL career, snapping his streak of 137 starts in a row in regular-season and playoff games.

3. Matt Schaub will start at quarterback Monday for the Ravens with Flacco out. He has not played in a game this season, but has extensive starting experience from his time with the Houston Texans from 2007-2013. Javorius Allen, Terrance West and Raheem Mostert are expected to be the Ravens’ primary running backs in Forsett’s absence. West is a former Browns running back. This will be his second game against his former team this season after appearing in a game earlier this year with the Tennessee Titans.

4. This matchup is widely considered as one of the worst in Monday Night Football history. Neither team is in the playoff hunt and are both likely headed toward top-10 picks in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Browns will play their third of four consecutive AFC North games. The Browns are 1-2 in the division with the only win being a 33-30 overtime triumph over the Ravens in Baltimore on Oct. 11. The Ravens are also 1-2 in the division as both teams look up to the Cincinnati Bengals (8-2, 3-0) and Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4, 1-2) in the standings.
