It was a much quieter second game back for Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.

After recording a sack against the Houston Texans during his season debut following a partially torn right Achilles tendon, Suggs was shut out by Browns Pro Bowl left offensive tackle Joe Thomas.

He finished with four tackles and one quarterback hit, occasionally shifting to the left side to try to rush against rookie offensive tackle Mitch Schwartz.

"It's always tough working on their offensive line," Suggs said. "Joe is a great tackle."

Although Suggs didn't generate much of a pass rush, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year was solid against the run as he played significantly more snaps than he did in Houston when he was utilized on 44 of 76 plays.

"I'm building on it," Suggs said. "I'm getting confidence back in the tendon. I'm still not there yet, but I'm going to get there. I can guaranteed you one thing: When we get to them games that count, we should be where we need to be."

Harbaugh penalized

One of the most penalized teams in the NFL, the Ravens had another rough game with the officials Sunday.

They were flagged nine times for 82 yards. That included coach John Harbaugh being hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct bench penalty when he complained about free safety Ed Reed being crushed by wide receiver Josh Gordon on a crack-back block.

Afterward, Harbaugh acknowledged he was in the wrong as the officials already had penalized Gordon. Harbaugh was unaware that the officials had made the call he wanted.

"That was on me," Harbaugh said. "I wanted the crack-back call. I didn't see the flag. I was drawing it to his attention, with a little too much enthusiasm obviously, and they got me rightly so."

Acrobatic play

Cornerback Cary Williams delivered his fourth interception of the season, diving to pick off a sideline pass by Weeden.

Then, Williams got up and darted around the field after retreating at first for a 26-yard return.

"They tried to sneak the tight end from the opposite side to my side, and I saw him and I remember they got us on that a couple of times on that play the first time," Williams said. "Weeden told me after the game he was trying to throw it away because the receiver didn't even look for the ball. I told him after the game to just throw it way out of bounds because you never know what will happen.

"He's a good quarterback. He has a huge upside. He's the future of that team. I think they made the right decision by going to get him in the first round."

Debut for Jah Reid

Inactive for the first seven games due to a strained right calf, offensive lineman Jah Reid made his season debut.

He lined up as an extra tight end in jumbo packages and took a few snaps at offensive guard.

"It feels good to go out there and help the team any way I can," said Reid, a 2011 third-round draft pick. "I did all right. You improve every week. It was great to be out there. I had some good plays, so it's something to build on."
