Browns look for first win of season against Ravens

Ravens punter Sam Koch has had a Pro Bowl-type, and he and punt-team gunner Chris Moore proved to be a lethal combination against the Browns.

- Hue Jackson is now 1-29 as the head coach of the Browns. His three defensive stops were his most in a single game since the Week 12 win over Houston and he picked up two hurries (his first multi-pressure game since Week 11) and a batted pass that nearly turned into an interception for Terrell Suggs, but for DeShone Kizer's intervention. The Browns totaled 136 yards on the ground as a team, including Duke Johnson scoring Cleveland's lone touchdown.

On the next play, Browns running back Isaiah Crowell burst through the line for a 59-yard gain. Breshad Perriman was active for just the second time in the past five games and made one catch for 9 yards, and Michael Campanaro had one catch for 17 yards, just his second catch in his past four games. Since the bye week, Flacco has passed for 1,150 yards with six touchdowns (one rushing) and only two interceptions. Kizer has now thrown 19 interceptions this season, which ties him with Mike Phipps, Frank Ryan, Bill Nelsen and Derek Anderson for 10th place on the franchise's all-time list for interceptions in a single season. If he can shake off the rust from eight weeks of inactivity quickly enough, Green Bay has the talent to keep the game close and even escape with a win.

Things pretty much fell apart for the Browns once they took that 7-3 lead.

When the Ravens have won this year, this has often been the formula: Create turnovers that either directly become points - Williams' score was the Ravens' fifth defensive touchdown this season, all coming in wins - or give the offense a short field to work with.

Are you in the Cleveland or Washington D.C., area and interested in seeing a live National Football League game on Sunday but just can't shell out more than $10?

Other than that, what more is there to say, really? Flacco hit on some key plays down the middle of the field at all levels, completing 18-of-25 for 208 yards and his touchdown passes on throws targeted between the numbers.

Outside of the running game the offensive highlights were hard to find. If you need a boom or bust player this week then Gordon is your guy.
