After being backed up big time due to penalty yardage, the Browns came up just short of a first down and punted on 4th-and-1. The Ravens then committed to the running game, and Cleveland couldn't stop it. The Ravens ran the ball 9 straight times, and then inside the ten, they tried their first pass play. The result? An uncovered fullback, who QB Joe Flacco easily connected with for a touchdown, giving Baltimore a 10-7 lead.
Cleveland had an awesome trick play on a pass from QB Brian Hoyer to QB Johnny Manziel on the next drive, and it would have gone for 50 yards, but a flag was thrown on the play for an illegal shift. Bummer! The Browns later had to punt. The Ravens were driving again, but as they approached field goal range, the defense came up with a stop, keeping it a 10-7 game as we head to the third quarter. Cleveland will get the ball first.
