Browns take back the ball

Denzel Ward grabs a double-tipped pass from Lamar Jackson and the Browns have the ball back quickly after the Landry fumble.

What a weird game this has been so far.

Ravens force a fumble

The Browns ran a trick play with Jarvis Landry trying to throw a pass but Odafe Oweh hit Landry and Patrick McQueen recovered the ball.

Baltimore has plenty of time here before halftime to extend their 6-0 lead.

Browns get ball back … finally

The Browns get the ball with just under 4 minutes left in the first half. Let’s see what Mayfield can do.

Marathon drive for the Ravens

Justin Tucker kicked a 25-yard field goal to give the Ravens a 6-0 field goal. It was a frustrating end to the drive for the Ravens who had first-and-goal from the Cleveland 3-yard line. A few failed runs and a deflected pass plus a false start penalty forced the Ravens into another field goal.

The Ravens ran 17 plays, covered more than 60 yards of ground and took up 8:41 on the play clock on that drive as Baker Mayfield sat frustrated on the Cleveland bench.

Ravens 6, Browns 0

17 plays, 59 yards, 8:41

Clowney down for Browns

Looked like Jadeveon Clowney grabbed his leg after tackling Devonta Freeman and Freeman’s shoe hit Clowney in an unfortunate spot…I think he’ll be OK eventually.

What a weird sequence…

I’ll try to summarize what just happened.

  1. Baltimore ran a fake punt on 4th and 2, but it was called back because Cleveland didn’t get chance to substitute
  2. Cleveland had 12 men on the field, so it took a timeout, even though it had an opportunity to sub with Lamar Jackson and the offense now out there
  3. Cleveland STILL had 12 men on the field, the refs blew the play dead and the Ravens got a first down.

Jerome Boger and his crew didn’t make it easy, but I think that’s what happened.

We’re under 2 minutes left in the first quarter and still scoreless.

Early observations from Ted Nguyen

The Ravens defense is playing tight man to man coverage and tackling well. Mayfield has to prove he can beat them deep to back the secondary off. It’ll be tough to do with his injured shoulder.

Defense shining so far

If you were hoping for a high-scoring game to help your fantasy football team pull off a miracle, it’s been a slow start for both teams.

The Browns have four first downs while the Ravens only have one.

Conklin injured now

Now the Browns are dealing with a significant offensive line injury with Jack Conklin down. He’s one of the best tackles in the league.

Rough injuries to start for both teams here.

UPDATE: He’s headed back to the locker room.

Ravens injury

Ravens center Bradley Bozeman just went down and it appears to be a serious injury as he’s not getting up after being attended to on the field.

Myles Garrett gets his 14th sack

Didn’t take long for Myles Garrett to get to Lamar Jackson. Garrett was basically triple-teamed and still got to Jackson.

Per our Zac Jackson, Garrett tied the Browns’ franchise record for sacks in a single season with that sack. Reggie Camp set the mark in 1984.

Browns put together good drive, miss field goal

Chase McLaughlin missed a 46-yard field goal to cap off what was a good start for Baker Mayfield, who went 3-for-5 for 56 yards. Jarvis Landry caught two of those balls for 47 yards.

Here comes Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense.

Love these Browns uniforms

Honestly, I can’t wait for the NFL to get rid of its stupid one helmet rule next year. We’re going to get to see so many awesome throw back uniforms and helmet combos.

How are the Ravens going to deal with the Browns’ pass rush?

The thought was unavoidable as Chicago Bears 31-year-old edge rusher Robert Quinn was having his way with the Ravens offensive tackles last week, finishing with 3 1/2 sacks, four quarterback hits and five tackles.

If the Ravens couldn’t block Quinn, how were they going to deal the following week with the Cleveland Browns edge-rushing duo of Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney?

That question still looms over the Ravens’ matchup with the Browns tonight at M&T Bank Stadium. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is healthy again, had a full week of practice and returns against a team that he’s arguably had his most success against. However, can the Ravens keep Garrett, the NFL leader in sacks, and Clowney out of the backfield enough to allow Jackson to direct a functional offense?

Five things the Browns need to do to make the playoffs

The Browns enter Week 12 sitting 10th in the AFC standings and last in the AFC North. The Browns are talented enough when healthy and clicking to be a playoff team — and the kind of team nobody would be excited about having to play in mid-January. But how do they get there? Can they get there?

Let’s explore …
