Quote to note: “I’m aware of the history. It’s interesting, some of the young players don’t know the history of our game, it’s just because they’re young. I think the history of what’s going on here is important to know and at some point I’ll talk about that with them. But, professional football players, they find a way to play well regardless of whom the opponent is and the history of the organizations and I think that’s the focus. Watch who these guys are on tape, understand who their matchups are, understand what the plan is and go play. I think that’s the focus.” -- Browns coach Pat Shurmur on the Ravens
