The Ravens will limit, if not shut down, Josh Gordon

To say that Josh Gordon has looked like a different player this year would be an understatement. He has had only one 100-yard game, and it took him 16 targets to get that. In the past three games, Gordon has gained just 108 yards. Ravens fans probably fear the guy who gained 1,646 yards last year. He won’t be playing in this game. This is the new Josh Gordon, who hasn’t developed chemistry with any of the Browns quarterbacks yet.

Gordon is still dangerous with his size-speed combination. He can be dealt with, though, and the Ravens actually have the players to do it. Rashaan Melvin did just fine last week guarding guys like DeAndre Hopkins. With Melvin’s own size-speed combo, the Ravens should be able to stick him on Gordon with some deep safety help and be just fine.
