Instant Analysis: Ravens 24, Browns 17

Ron Fritz: An ugly win that might be even uglier if Ray Rice can't play next week. The Ravens looked very disinterested against a team they should have beaten easily. Meanwhile, the Steelers took care of business and crushed a team they should have crushed. Maybe the Ravens aren't as good as everybody thinks.

Edward Lee: The Ravens will gladly take the win, but the Steelers must be licking their chops at the prospect of running Rashard Mendenhall through the heart of a surprisingly porous rush defense.

Ken Murray: Who's worried about Joe Flacco now?

Mike Preston: At this point, we won't call the Ravens a playoff contender. We'll just call them a work in progress.

Peter Schmuck: It wasn't the blowout Ravens fans were looking for, but the offense got on track, which was pretty important going into Week 4 in Pittsburgh.

Kevin Van Valkenburg: A ho-hum win against the AFC North's junior varsity. Still, it was probably just what Joe Flacco needed, seeing Anquan Boldin run down the field completely uncovered for much of the afternoon. The intensity of the defense was pretty lacking at times, but a win is a win. Say a few Hail Mary's on behalf of Ray Rice's knee though.
