The Baltimore Ravens (6-2) defeated the Cleveland Browns (2-7) by a 25-15 margin in their Week 9 AFC North matchup at Cleveland Browns Stadium in Cleveland. It is the Ravens 10th consecutive win over their former franchise.
Brandon Weeden completed just 54 percent of his passes and threw two interceptions while running back Trent Richardson went for over 100 yards for the third time this season.
Richardson's 100-yard performance against Baltimore made him the first rookie to accomplish that feat since Fred Taylor did it in 1998.
Baltimore started the game out hot, taking a 14-0 lead after making their first two drives look easy. Cleveland, on the other hand, started with two three-and-outs in the opening period.
The game momentum shifted from that point.
Cleveland closed the gap to 14-12 at halftime after accruing three second-quarter field goals. However, their inability to get into the end zone ended up being their downfall in this one.
Josh Gordon and Brandon Weeden connected on a 18-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter but the play was called back due to an illegal formation call against the Browns' offense.
Baltimore sealed the game after Pat Shurmur dialed up a fourth-and-two try while in Browns territory. The Ravens got the ball back, kicked a field goal and went by up 10 points with a little over two minutes left to play.
