Browns complete second half comeback, topping Ravens 33 to 31

The air was deflated out of M&T Stadium in Baltimore, MD as the Cleveland Browns kicker, Dustin Hopkins converted a 40-yard field goal to get an AFC North victory.  Baltimore controlled the game most of the game, however quarterback Lamar Jackson threw 2 timely interceptions that the Browns took advantage of.  Cleveland controlled the line of scrimmage accumulating 178 rushing yards and possessing the football 34:15 of the total game time.  On third down, Cleveland was efficient on 3rd down going 8 for 16, and 1 for 2 on 4th down attempts.  Ball security has been an issue for Cleveland this season, but today Deshaun Watson was comfortable in the pocket passing for 20 of 34 completions for 213 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception.  The Browns running game was led by Jerome Ford with 17 carries for 107 yards, and Kareem Hunt added 32 yards and 1 rushing touchdown.  As a receiving unit, the Browns accumulated 213 yards and 1 touchdown. 

           

With the 4th quarter starting, the Ravens had a 24 to 17 lead to start the quarter.  As Baltimore led, the Ravens added an additional touchdown to extend their lead 31 to 17.  As Cleveland cut the lead 31 to 30, the extra point was missed by the Browns. In football, it is rare to have an opportunity to redeem yourself, and field-goal kicker Dustin Hopkins capitalized on a 40-yard field goal to cap off a 58-yard game winning drive.  Cleveland improves their record to 6-3 and is now tied for 2nd place in the NFC North.  For the Ravens, their third loss of the season comes after leading late in the game and now will host the Cincinnati Bengals in a primetime game on Thursday night.  Baltimore had a 4-game winning streak heading into Sunday’s contest.  The Ravens remain on the top of the AFC North and will look to get back to their winning ways and still hold their lead in the division.
