Browns Vs. Ravens Final Score: Despite Late Rally, Cleveland Falls 20-14

Miscues hurt the Cleveland Browns early on against the Baltimore Ravens, allowing sacks at inopportune times (not that there's ever a good time to allow a sack) and having an early interception turning into Baltimore points, but a strong second half led to a Cleveland resurgence, bringing the game within one score.

Josh Cribbs returned a punt for a touchdown late in the third quarter, and Cleveland orchestrated a nice drive that went for 13 plays and ended with a touchdown. Starting from their own 20-yard line, the Browns converted two third downs, and a third if you count the one in which Seneca Wallace hit Moore for a six-yard touchdown to bring them within six points. After forcing a Baltimore punt, they were driving again.

But they were eventually held on a fourth down with five yards to go, and the Ravens escaped with a 20-14 win. Cleveland actually looked good on offense, thanks to running back Peyton Hillis, who rushed for 112 yards against a tough Baltimore defense. Wallace actually threw for more yardage than Joe Flacco did, with 147 to 132, but Flacco had two touchdowns, including a beautiful 42-yarder to running back Ray Rice.

The Browns move to 4-11 on the season and next will take on the rival Steelers on Jan. 1st, while the Ravens move to 11-4, and are looking ahead to the playoffs.
