Chris Carr turned a gaffe into a gift.
The Ravens cornerback got turned around by Browns wide receiver Brian Robiskie, who hauled in a 29-yard pass from wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi to give Cleveland a 7-0 lead with 7:01 left in the first quarter.
But on the first play of Cleveland's next possession, Carr stripped Massaquoi of the football after a catch, and linebacker Jameel McClain returned the fumble nine yards. That set up a Joe Flacco 15-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh that gave the Ravens a 10-7 lead with 11:47 left in the second quarter.
"I read it the entire way, and I just kind of misjudged the ball," said Carr, who did not practice Friday because of an illness and was considered questionable. "I was like, 'Hey, have confidence, go out there, and do your job and try to make a play.' It's always about the next play. It doesn't matter if you have a good play or a bad play. So it felt good to go out there and make a play and kind of get that back."
