BEREA, Ohio - When the Browns and Ravens last met, Phil Taylor took a big spit.
On Sept. 15, Cleveland's massive nose tackle accused Baltimore running back Ray Rice of spitting in his face during the Ravens' 14-6 win. Taylor responded by slapping Rice's helmet, drawing a 15-yard personal foul penalty.
Although both players say they've moved on from the incident, it hasn't been forgotten as the Browns (3-5) get ready to host the Ravens (3-4) on Sunday.
Rice explained this week that he was only "jawing" at Taylor and didn't intend to spit toward him. Taylor expects the Ravens will try to "get under my skin" but he's planning to keep his emotions in check.
Browns running back Willis McGahee says he understands trash talking, but it's "a different story when you're exchanging body fluids."
