Cleveland Browns Shock Baltimore Ravens
After Lamar Jackson threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Mark Andrews (2-point conversion on a Mark Ingram run) for the Baltimore Ravens to make it a 24-18 deficit, the Cleveland Browns decided to rip Baltimore’s heart out on the next drive on an 88-yard touchdown by Nick Chubb and Cleveland took down Baltimore 40-25.
Chubb finished the day with 165 yards rushing on 20 carries and three touchdowns. He also caught three passes for 18 yards receiving.
In the first quarter, the Browns scored on a 9-yard touchdown pass by Baker Mayfield and it was thrown to Ricky Seals-Jones. He caught three passes for 82 yards receiving and a touchdown. Mayfield completed 20-of-30 passes for 342 yards one touchdown and one interception.
Jarvis Landry was the leading receiver for Cleveland with eight receptions for 167 yards receiving. He left the game in the second half with a concussion and Landry did not return.
Odell Beckham Jr. was held in check for the Browns with two receptions for 20 yards receiving. He also attempted a pass in the game, but Beckham Jr. did not complete it.
Lamar Jackson threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Miles Boykin in the second-quarter for Baltimore. Boykin caught three passes for 32 yards receiving and a score.
With the game tied at 10 in the third quarter, Nick Chubb scored 14-yard touchdown run for the Cleveland Browns and he also scored on a 2-yard touchdown run to make it 24-10.
With Cleveland leading 33-18 in the fourth-quarter, Dontrell Hilliard scored on a 1-yard touchdown to make it 40-18. Hilliard finished the game with 27 yards rushing on six carries and a score.
Baltimore scored on a 50-yard touchdown pass to Willie Snead IV to Lamar Jackson late in the game. Snead IV was the leading receiver with two receptions for 61 yards receiving.
Jackson completed 24-of-34 passes for 247 yards three touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for 66 yards on nine carries.
Mark Ingram II was the leading rusher for the Ravens with 71 yards on 12 carries. He also caught one pass for zero yards receiving.
Mark Andrews caught four passes for 31 yards receiving and a touchdown.
This was a monstrous win for the Cleveland Browns. At the moment, they are in first place in the AFC North. Cleveland’s Head Coach Freddie Kitchens faced a ton of heat all week long.
He was able to silence all the doubters for now and they will have a target on their back for the rest of the season. It will be interesting to see how they face this week in and week out.
The Baltimore Ravens have now lost their last two games and they might need to do some soul searching. The truth of the matter is, the winner of the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers game on Monday night will only be one game back in the AFC North Standings.
Cleveland (2-2) will go on the road and face the San Francisco 49ers (3-0) next Monday night. Baltimore (2-2) will go on the road and face the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-3) next Sunday.
