Paul Kruger: 'Cleveland Browns must stop Ray Rice'

Cleveland Browns linebacker Paul Kruger says that the team must focus on stopping Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice this weekend.

Paul Kruger has said that the Cleveland Browns must stop Ray Rice in their game against the Baltimore Ravens this weekend.

The linebacker joined the Browns in the off-season, having spent the previous four seasons with the Super Bowl champions.

The 27-year-old told reporters: "I think it starts with [Ravens running back] Ray Rice. You've got to stop that running attack because they have good offensive linemen that can pull with [guards Marshal] Yanda and [Kelechi] Osemele.

"They can move, they're strong, they can do a lot of things, so for Ray to be able to run behind those guys and then [fullback] Vonta Leach, that sets the tone for a lot of their drop-back passes.

"I had a great experience in Baltimore. I loved it there. I've got so many people over there I still keep in contact with, but I'm not there anymore and this is my home now. I love it here and I want to help us get to where we want to be."

Both sides lost their opening games of the season.
