Ravens LB Ray Lewis referred to Browns RB Peyton Hillis as a “blind cat” entering Week Sixteen, and the blind cat “went home hungry” with a season-low 40 total yards in Sunday’s 20-10 loss to Baltimore.
According to Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun, Jameel McClain has been the Ravens’ best inside linebacker in the past two weeks.
Hillis revealed that an early-game hit to his back and ribs from Reed “took a toll” on the running back throughout Sunday’s loss.
The Browns have double-digit losses in nine of their last 12 seasons.
For whatever it’s worth, Ravens coach John Harbaugh believes that Browns coach Eric Mangini should keep his job into 2011.
