Ravens-Browns Final Score: Cleveland Loses 33-27 to Baltimore on Monday Night Football

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens put on one of the wackiest prime time games of the 2015 season, particularly in the closing two minutes of the game. Ultimately, the game ended with the Browns finding a new way to lose: as they set up for a 51-yard field goal to try to win the game, the Ravens blocked the field goal and returned it 64 yards for a touchdown. The game then technically ended as Baltimore chose to kneel on the point after try. The 33-27 loss sends the Browns to 2-9 on the year, while Baltimore improves to 4-7.

The game also featured QB Josh McCown having to leave in the fourth quarter with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. QB Johnny Manziel remained on the sideline, and in came QB Austin Davis. In his first action of the year with the club, Davis found WR Travis Benjamin for a 42-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 27-27 with 1:55 left in the game.

The Ravens then went three-and-out, but so did Cleveland. QB Matt Schaub then threw an interception to CB Tramon Williams on the next drive, as Cleveland only needed about 15 yards to get into field goal range. Cleveland had some bad clock management that could've gotten a closer kick for K Travis Coons. That's when the aforementioned block-turned-touchdown happened to finish the game. It was Coons' first miss of the season, and the Ravens' fifth blocked kick in five games.
