What happened: Playing just four days after an emotional victory over the Patriots, the Ravens took a 23-10 lead into the fourth quarter and then barely held on as Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden watched a couple of passes to the end zone fall incomplete in the final seconds. Much-maligned cornerback Cary Williams (pictured) had a 63-yard interception return for a touchdown. Star of the game: Veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin had just one catch for 6 yards in the first half, but he took over the game in the second, hauling in eight passes for 119 yards. Turning point: The Ravens held a tenuous six-point lead late in the third quarter when Williams, who had struggled mightily for the first three weeks, stepped in front of a Weeden pass in the flat and returned it 63 yards for a touchdown. It was the first interception of Williams' career. Key stats: Flacco threw for 337 yards. The Ravens totaled 438 yards of offense. Cleveland went a combined 3-for-16 on third and fourth downs. Quote: "Cary Williams was the difference in the game," Harbaugh said. "Here's a guy that was under a lot of heat from [the media]. But he wasn't under heat in our building because we know what kind of player he is and he came up big. I think he deserved that."
