Week 9: Ravens 25, Browns 15
With the offense still struggling to get onto the same page after the bye week, the Ravens relied on their defense. Despite allowing 136 total yards to Browns running back Trent Richardson, the Ravens kept Cleveland out of the end zone. Rice and backup Bernard Pierce each rushed for a touchdown in the opening quarter to give the Ravens a 14-0 advantage. But the offense went quiet after that, failing to score again until the final five minutes of the fourth quarter as the Browns took a 15-14 lead on five field goals from Dawson. After falling behind, Flacco found Smith for his only touchdown pass of the game -- a 19-yard score -- at the 4:26 mark, and Tucker sealed the 10-point victory with a 43-yard field goal with 2:49 remaining.
KEY NUMBER: 0 -- Touchdowns the Browns scored on five trips into the red zone.
RAVEN OF THE GAME: Rice. He rushed for 98 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries.
