The Baltimore Ravens improved to 6-2 on the season after defeating the Cleveland Browns 25-15 on Sunday afternoon at Cleveland Stadium.
The Ravens started off the afternoon strong jumping out to an early 14-0 lead on the Browns with rushing touchdowns from running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce.
Cleveland kicker Phil Dawson kept the Browns in the game all afternoon kicking three field goals before the half sending the Browns into halftime trailing just 14-9.
The Ravens offense stuttered throughout the second half until a late drive in the fourth quarter sealed their third straight division win of the season. Quarterback Joe Flacco tossed a late 19-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith along with a two-point conversion to receiver Anquan Boldin to gibe the Ravens a 22-15 lead.
Flacco finished the game 15-of-24 for 153 yards and one touchdown.
Baltimore’s defense continued its ”bend don’t break” mentality and shut down the Browns offense when it mattered most. The Ravens kept the Browns offense out of the end zone the entire afternoon. Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden finished the game 20-of-37, 176 yards and two interceptions.
Browns running back Trent Richardson continued racking up yards in his rookie season. Richardson rushed for 105 yards on 25 carries on the afternoon.
Baltimore will host the Oakland Raiders next Sunday for their only home game in the month of November.
