.The Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback has been on the losing end of 11 of his 14 games against Baltimore. Ten of those 11 came when he was with the Cleveland Browns. He's only lost to the Ravens once with the Steelers http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jc-tretter-jersey , 26-14 in Week 4 of this season.That one felt different. So will the game Sunday, where the Steelers secondary will look to take another step in a third straight game against an AFC North rival."I think being here and (in Cleveland), (the Steelers are) at the top of the division most of the time, seeing who can win it and fighting for the division winner," Haden said."So I think that's just a little different toward the end of the season, knowing these games (against Baltimore) could be big when we get to the end, determining who can get to the playoffs."The secondary could obviously be better than it was in the previous matchup, Haden said. Defensive coordinator Keith Butler agreed.Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw for 363 yards and two touchdowns against a Steelers secondary that allowed an average of 305 passing yards through its first four games."We have to make sure, as much as we can, that we keep the ball in front of us," Butler said. "We can't give up easy touchdowns. Teams go up, we have to make them go up by (field goals) and not let them go up by seven, if we can."Ravens wide receiver John Brown had 116 yards and one touchdown on just three receptions in the first matchup against Pittsburgh. Haden knows that can't happen again."He's a small dude http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/joel-bitonio-jersey , obviously. He's small, really fast," Haden said. "You have to make sure you keep him in front of you. He can really beat you. ... He had those two deep balls on us, so we have to contain that."If Pittsburgh's past three games are any indication, the defensive backs might have a better chance against Brown this time.Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was held without a catch until the fourth quarter of a 41-17 loss to the Steelers in Week 5, when he had a season-low 62 yards. The following week, A.J. Green caught seven of his 12 targets for 85 yards in a 28-21 Cincinnati Bengals loss to Pittsburgh.Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry had 39 yards on eight receptions in the Steelers' 33-18 win last Sunday.Haden matched up against each of those three. He wouldn't say who would be responsible for Brown from Pittsburgh's secondary, which is expected to have cornerback Artie Burns in the mix after using him exclusively on special teams against Cleveland.Burns was disciplined after arriving late to a team walkthrough Saturday.Cornerback Mike Hilton, whom Haden called one of the Steelers' best players, said no matter who is called upon, limiting Brown is a must for Pittsburgh.After missing the first matchup with an elbow injury, Hilton also said he has a plan for Sunday."There were certain things I did see," Hilton said. "I feel like I'll be able to www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com , I'm not going to say make every play, but help control the outcome of that play. So personally, I feel like from what I saw from the last game and what I've seen up until now, I have a solid idea what to expect."NOTES: QB Ben Roethlisberger (left finger), LB Bud Dupree (illness) and C Maurkice Pouncey (did not practice Wednesday/coaches' decision) were full participants Thursday. ... CB Coty Sensabaugh (toe) and OL Marcus Gilbert (knee) were limited. ... OL Ramon Foster (coaches' decision) did not practice. As much as the Oakland Raiders felt like they might have let a couple of winnable games slip away to start this season, they might have stolen one away from the Cleveland Browns to spoil Baker Mayfield's first career start.Derek Carr led a game-tying drive in the final seconds of regulation after a replay review took away a Cleveland first down and the Raiders got their first win since Jon Gruden's return to the sideline by beating the Browns 45-42 on Matt McCrane's 29-yard field goal in overtime Sunday.The Raiders (1-3) blew second-half leads in each of the first three games and didn't trail any of them for a single second in the first three quarters before erasing deficits of 14 points and eight points to beat the Browns (1-2-1) and give Gruden his first win since 2008."We haven't fixed anything yet," Gruden said. "We have a lot of things we have to get better at. I think it is pretty obvious. We played some good football for stints."The Raiders rode a roller-coaster in this game, falling behind 28-14 in the third quarter before rallying for a 34-28 lead in the fourth, thanks in part to two fumbles by Mayfield.But the Browns answered with two more TDs and the Raiders appeared done when Carr threw two straight incompletions from the 9 to turn the ball over on downs with less than two minutes to play.Carlos Hyde ran three times and appeared to have a first down that would have run out the clock only to have it overturned when officials ruled his elbow touched the ground short of the marker."I definitely thought that we had the first down," Hyde said. "But they changed the call. We got to get it right there. If we're going to win the game, we got to get that one."The Raiders took over at their 47 with 1:28 to go and Carr led a game-tying drive reminiscent of 2016, when he had seven fourth-quarter comebacks. After failing to deliver late in the first three games this season, Carr threw a 7-yard TD to Jared Cook with 30 seconds left and then added the game-tying 2-point conversion to Jordy Nelson.Carr finished with 437 yards passing and four TDs."The start of this year and half of this game has been some of the hardest stuff I've ever had to deal with Cleveland Browns T-Shirt , because it's frustrating things," Carr said. "I feel the best 鈥?physically, mentally, all of those things that I ever have. But then I screw something up somewhere along the way. I'll tell you this though, one thing I just said and looked to our guys and said fight."Here are some other takeaways:BAKER'S DAYMayfield threw for 295 yards and two TDs in his first career start but also had two interceptions and lost two fumbles. Those turnovers helped prevent him from becoming the third Browns QB out of 30 to win his first start with the team since the franchise returned in 1999."He's going to learn," coach Hue Jackson said. "He's got football intelligence. Today, as he goes through it, he'll understand, and we've talked about it a little bit, just how important those things are. You got to be team-protecting in certain situations, but you don't want to rein him in, because I like the things he's doing."BEAST MODEAs the Raiders struggled to move the ball early in the game, Marshawn Lynch let his teammates know it on the sideline. He then responded with his biggest game in years Cleveland Browns Hats , running for 130 yards in his most productive game since 2014 and inspiring his teammates by running through several tackles."He was saying basically that we're putting the game on our backs," left tackle Kolton Miller said. "They're running behind us, it starts with us, he gave us really encouraging words. He said 'I'm going to run with y'all' and that really boosted us."CHUBBS RUNSBrowns rookie Nick Chubb scored on runs of 63 and 41 yards, while carrying only three times all day. His 63-yard TD run was the longest by a Browns rookie since Lee Suggs had a 78-yard score on Dec. 28, 2003, and the third-longest run in the NFL this season. Chubb is also the first Browns rookie RB to surpass the 100-yard mark since Terrence West on Sept. 7, 2014.MCCRANE'S DAYThe Raiders were forced to turn to their third kicker this week when Mike Nugent was placed on IR with a hip injury after taking over for the previously injured Eddy Pineiro. They turned to rookie McCrane, who was initially signed this spring by Arizona as an undrafted free agent after setting the Kansas State record for career FGs. McCrane missed his first field goal from 47 yards and then a 50-yarder on the opening possession of OT before connecting on the game-winner.
