But for the Ravens, this one was particularly meaningful since all three of their losses this season came on the road against teams with losing records.
Unlike their latest loss—which came against the Seattle Seahawks three weeks ago—the Ravens had success running the ball yesterday. In fact, it was one of their best running games ever with Ray Rice setting a personal record, rushing for 204 yards.
Although the Browns' defense did a good job shutting down the pass, it didn't matter thanks to the Ravens' running game.
The defense was also stellar, even though they didn't get nine sacks like last week. It contributed by sacking Colt McCoy three times and getting an interception.
Even the special teams assisted thanks to Lardarius Webb's 68-yard punt return for a touchdown.
With this win, the Ravens move to 9-3 and remain first in the AFC North. They have small room for error with the Pittsburgh Steelers also at 9-3. Here are four things I took away from the Ravens' win.
