Though the Cleveland Browns are out of the playoff race and will be picking near the top-end of the 2012 NFL Draft, they've got an AFC North rival to take on in Week 16, and as usual, they'll play extremely hard. Draft positioning is never something a coaching staff cares about while the season is underway, and Cleveland would rather beat the Ravens than pick a spot ahead any day. They're playing for pride, but more than that, they're also looking to evaluate the entirety of the roster before the season is over. They've got a good look already, but this is a point where they can make mostly-final judgments before heading into the offseason with the draft and free agency.
Baltimore has punched their ticket into the playoffs and are playing for seeding and not much else. Well, that's not entirely true - they're looking to beat their divisional rivals just as much as the Browns want to, of course. It's a battle for pride on both sides, even if one team will be going to the playoffs while the other may be picking in the top five come draft day.
