Browns look for first win of season against Ravens

Meat of the issue: Ravens know what's at 'steak' in playing winless Browns

Cleveland finished its home slate Sunday with a 27-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Tucker owns the best field-goal percentage in National Football League history (.899, 195-for-217), but five of his 22 misses have come against Cleveland, more than any other team.

Isaiah Crowell (five carries for 72 yards) led a Browns rushing attack that finished with 130 yards but had a minimal impact beyond the team's lone touchdown drive.

That run sparked a five-play, 96-yard drive touchdown drive - done entirely on the ground - to take a 7-3 lead. The first play saw Flacco, in shotgun, run to the right and sequentially get drilled by three Cleveland defenders one yard short of the end zone. Previously, Baltimore threw the ball on a few early goal line downs.

"I texted back: 'Yes, this is a rare opportunity, '" Harbaugh said. He also threw an interception.

The Browns' lead did not last long.

He helped the Titans get into range for what appeared to be a game-winning field goal after the two-minute warning. Ahkello Witherspoon, who was listed as questionable with a knee injury, started and played the entire game.

It's not an unfamiliar sight in Browns games, where defensive backs have played a ridiculous distance from the line of scrimmage. Kizer even swatted a tipped pass out of the arms of Suggs.

Punter Sam Koch pinned the Browns inside the 5-yard line multiple times, and one led to a defensive score in the third quarter. But Baltimore got some separation when Za'Darius Smith strip-sacked DeShone Kizer in the end zone. Tucker is 10-for-10 at Cleveland. The three-possession lead put any chance of a Cleveland comeback to bed. Mike Wallace was his favorite target (six receptions, 89 yards) while Baltimore's running backs and tight ends accounted for 17 catches for 151 yards. You have to take care of your own business. "Our coverage was there pretty much all day".

The Ravens are now 4-1 since the bye week.

Despite losing to the Steelers last week the Ravens are still in prime position to secure a playoff spot, that is if they can bounce back this week. Now he has 15 total touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Flacco ran the ball for 3 yards on first down.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was ruled out of Sunday's game against the winless Cleveland Browns after hurting his knee on the opening drive. But in another one of those puzzling play calling days from Jackson, Crowell would not run the ball again the rest of the game.

The Buffalo Bills took down the Miami Dolphins 24-16 to improve to 8-6 on the year. Those two teams are a combined 8-19.
