It is to be hoped that the weather is warm enough and the field soft enough to give these exciting teams a maximum of running and passing advantage. Both have truly spectacular offenses; Tony Lorick and Lenny Moore give Baltimore just as strong a running game as Cleveland has with Jimmy Brown and Ernie Green. Any one of the four backs is capable of a long run. While Raymond Berry and Jimmy Orr do not have quite the speed of Cleveland's Warfield and Collins, they more than make up for that with experience.
There is no great difference between the teams, but in the two most important areas of the game Baltimore has a clear edge: quarterback and overall defense. Cleveland probably will score at least a couple of times on long plays, but Baltimore should control the ball, run more plays—and win.
