Take a look at Gary Barnidge this week at tightend.  With Manziel benched for MNF, McCown is the better QB of the two and should be looking at Barnidge in the redzone, who has scored at least one touchdown in 6 of the last 8 games.  The Ravens also have the 24th ranked passing defense in the league, which is perfect for the Browns since they have no running game to rely on anyways.

Delanie Walker has become the primary target in the Titans offense recently, and he’s going up against a Raiders passing defense that’s ranked 30th in the league.
