It was a tale of 2 halves. The first half belonged to the Cleveland Browns, who outscored the Baltimore Ravens 6-0 on 2 Billy Cundiff field goals of 21 and 51 yards. In contrast Ravens’ talented placekicker, Justin Tucker missed 2 field goals in the first half of 50 and 44 yards, helping to keep the Ravens scoreless in the first half. However, the 2nd half was a different story. The Ravens scored on a 5 yard run by 2nd year running back Bernard Pierce, and on a 5 yard pass to rookie wide receiver Marlon Brown from quarterback Joe Flacco (whose wife gave birth to the couple’s 2nd child 1 hour before gametime). The Ravens defense was very stout, keeping the Browns offense out of the end zone, while sacking Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden 5 times. Starting running back Ray Rice left the game in the 4th quarter with a hip flexor. The team is optimistic that Rice will be available for action in next week’s home game against the Houston Texans. The home-opening 14-6 victory before a crowd of over 79,000 at sold out M&T Bank Stadium, was the Ravens’ first win of the season, evening their record at 1 and 1.
