Browns vs. Ravens: Takeaways from Baltimore's 14-6 Win over Cleveland
Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports
The Ravens pulled out an ugly victory in a typical AFC North battle.

It was a tale of two halves when the Baltimore Ravens played their home opener against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Initially, the Baltimore offense looked as though they were playing in quicksand, as they couldn’t get anything going. Justin Tucker also uncharacteristically missed two field goals, and the Ravens went into halftime trailing by six points.

In the second half, the Ravens looked more like the team we were expecting to see. They established the ground game and were more efficient on third downs, leading to two touchdowns. On defense, they held the Browns scoreless and escaped with the win.

This was far from a convincing performance by the defending champions, but the second half was encouraging. The Ravens will need to build upon that momentum as they host the Houston Texans next week.

Here are some of the most important things you should take away from the Ravens' Week 2 performance against Cleveland.
