Browns vs Ravens: 4 Things We Learned from Cleveland's 20-14 Loss

The Cleveland Browns dropped their second matchup with the Baltimore Ravens of the 2011 season on Christmas Eve, losing 20-14 and falling to 0-5 in the AFC North. 

The Browns and the Team Formerly Known As the Browns are faring about as differently as possible this season, with the Ravens one win away from winning the AFC North divisional crown and the Browns falling to 4-11 and in danger of failing to match their five-win total from 2010. 

While the score looked relatively close, it was all Ravens for the almost the whole first three quarters, with Baltimore up 20-0 well into the third quarter.

The Browns came on at the end, putting two touchdowns on the board (one at the end of the third and one in the fourth), and pulled within six of the Ravens, but it was too little, too late, and Cleveland dropped a division game for the fifth time this season. 

A horrendous clock management error and the Browns' usual problems looking alive in the first half contributed to their demise, but we did see some positives for Cleveland in this one, particularly toward the end of the contest. 

A loss is a loss, but for what it's worth, the Browns played a better game for the most part than they did the first time they faced the Ravens this season. 

Following are four things we learned in the Browns 20-14 loss to the Ravens.
