Browns vs Ravens: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
The defending champions will try and bounce back from an embarrassing loss to Denver on national T.V. last Thursday. On the other hand, the Browns need a victory after their disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins.
No team in the AFC North has a victory, so someone will be tied for first place after this game. Who will it be?
Stay tuned to the live blog for in-game reaction and analysis.
The Ravens' defense holds strong as Baltimore escapes with the 14-6 victory.
Even thought it wasn't pretty, Baltimore comes away with the victory and improves to 1-1. The offensive effort needs to improve but the defense showed they can still produce enough pressure to win.
The Browns on the other hand, have 16 points through two games and Brandon Weeden's status is now questionable.
The AFC North is wide open this season and whoever can get above .500 should have a shot at the division title.
The Browns will have just under four minutes to march 99 yards with their backup quarterback, Jason Campbell. It is still a one score game, 14-6.
Brandon Weeden left the game with a thumb injury.
If Campbell can put together a drive it could be an interesting week for the Browns. Campbell is much better at dissecting defenses but has nowhere near as good of an arm.
With Ray Rice off the field with an injury, Joe Flacco carved up the Browns defense.
While Rice's injury is a long-term problem, he was a non-factor today. Bernard Pierce was more effective out of the backfield and moved the ball better with him in the game.
With that touchdown, the Ravens now lead 14-6 and should have the victory sealed up if the defense can hold.
The Ravens shot themselves in the foot by holding on their first play of the series.
They have found no rhythm today and Ray Rice has been a non-factor. The lone bright spot has been Joe Flacco, who has made good decisions since the first few drives.
He has taken the few opportunities that have been given to him and not forced passes. The second half has been much better for him and the Ravens.
The Browns went for a crucial fourth down to start the fourth quarter. After coming up less than an inch short, the Ravens take over on downs.
The spot, which was favorable, looked to be enough to continue the Browns' drive, but the officials thought otherwise.
The Browns will challenge the spot, but I doubt they will overturn this.
Brandon Weeden's receivers once again let him down, dropping back-to-back first down catches.
First, Chris Ogbonnaya dropped an easy 30-yard gain, and then Greg Little dropped a 15-yard pass in traffic.
The Browns cannot afford to let big play chances slip away.
The protection adjustments by the Ravens have been fantastic. Joe Flacco carved up the Browns secondary, going 12 plays for 80 yards.
The Ravens found a rhythm in the run game which allowed Flacco enough time to pick apart the Browns secondary.
Judging by the Browns' offensive effort last week and in the first half, a 7-6 lead may be enough to hold on to victory.
In a shocking turn of events, the Browns are leading the Ravens 6-0 at halftime.
Billy Cundiff is 2-of-2 while Justin Tucker missed two first-half field goals.
Thus far, Brandon Weeden has out-played Joe Flacco. Weeden is 13-of-17 for 158 yards, while Flacco is 12-of-21 for 109 yards.
Flacco has spent much of the first half forcing passes into coverage down the field. The Ravens have ignored Ray Rice, who has just five carries for 13 yards and just nine yards receiving.
Both defenses have been especially stout and this has the makings of a game that comes down to the final quarter.
Justin Tucker might be feeling the ghost of Billy Cundiff. Cundiff missed a field goal to tie the AFC Championship two years ago for the Ravens.
Now, in Cundiff's return to Baltimore, Tucker has pushed two first-half field goals.
Tons of extracurricular activities this game. Phil Taylor, Ray Rice and the Ravens offensive line have been mixing it up the entire first half.
The Ravens are exploiting the right side of the Browns offensive line. Elvis Dumervil just ate Mitchell Schwartz's lunch. He now has a sack and three quarterback hits.
They can use that matchup all game long to their advantage.
At the end of the first quarter, the Browns lead the Ravens 3-0. Brandon Weeden is 4-6 for 74 yards.
The Ravens have been successful exploiting the Browns' linebackers in coverage. Other than that, Flacco has been forcing balls too deep into coverage.
Slow start offensively for both teams.
Still no Trent Richardson on third down for the Browns. Sooner or later they need to get him involved. Especially since they were 1-14 on third downs last week.
