The Cleveland Browns head to Baltimore this weekend for an AFC North showdown with the Ravens. While the game will be vital in getting the Browns back to .500, it will also serve as a reunion for quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Baltimore's lineup consists of several of his former Oklahoma teammates. Ravens players Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, Ben Powers, Orlando Brown, and Mark Andrews all played with Mayfield in 2017 - his Heisman Trophy-winning season.

Hollywood Brown and Andrews were Mayfield's two leading receivers in 2017. They combined for over 2,000 receiving yards and 15 of his 43 touchdowns that year.

Meanwhile, Orlando Brown and Powers were both starting offensive linemen. Brown wound up earning All-American honors blocking for Mayfield.

Ahead of the game, Mayfield expressed his excitement at getting to face some of his former Oklahoma teammates.

"It is different, looking over there and seeing a lot of the guys I played with. It's fun to watch those guys, knowing how talented they are..."

Mayfield may be nostalgic to see his former teammates, but he's going to be supremely focused on Sunday's game.

A win would give Cleveland a 2-2 record, tied with Baltimore for the AFC North lead. But a loss would drop them to 1-3 - several games out of the race and in a 0-1 hole against division foes.

The game will be played at 1:00 PM EST and will air on CBS.
