OK, not really.

But Browns running back Peyton Hillis had a monster first half against the Ravens, rushing for 73 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and catching five passes for 27 yards. Hillis scored from one yard out in the closing seconds of the second quarter -- the first touchdown the Ravens have allowed in 10 quarters -- to cut the Ravens' lead to 14-10 at the half.

Now Baltimore-based fantasy football owners realize why Hillis, whom the Browns acquired in the Brady Quinn deal, has been cutting into Jerome Harrison's carries in 2010 (Harrison is out today, giving Hillis a chance to carry the load by himself).

Hillis, one of those tailback/fullback hybrids, is a powerful downhill runner that gets the ball, makes a quick cut and plows his way forward. On a 25-yard carry in the second quarter, Hillis pushed hard-hitting Ravens safety Dawan Landry backwards five yards before getting gang-tackled.

Obviously, the Ravens need to get this guy stopped in the second half. As good as he's looked today, allowing 100 rushing yards to Peyton Hillis, an average back at best, would be pretty embarrassing.
