Baltimore Ravens lose to the Browns: The mostly bad and the ugly
The Good (We’ll make this part real quick)
Well it took until the third quarter to have much of anything good to say about the Baltimore Ravens. One of the most pivotal moments of the games was when the Ravens defense held the Browns to a field goal after a Buck Allen fumble. A touchdown would have made winning the game a very tough ask for the Ravens. A field goal made it a six point game. That was a huge stop by the Ravens defense, a defense that was getting very little help. The Ravens cut the lead in half with a long drive that resulted in a field goal.
The Ravens ended up scoring another field goal and making it a 9-9 score. The Ravens forced overtime, and there is something to be said for that. Though, it must be said the Browns field goal kicker got a chance to end this game in regulation and the Ravens got lucky that he couldn’t. The Browns won the coin toss and got the ball first. Za’Darius Smith got a sack and forced a 3rd and 13. It ended up being a great stop, but the Ravens got the ball deep inside their own side of the field. A Chris Moore block in the back ruined a good drive and the Browns won the game on the ugliest good field goal attempt you’ll ever see.
There wasn’t much good in this game for the Ravens. This was one of the worst moments the Ravens could have even imagined. The Ravens lost a game in the worst fashion possible. They made mistakes that cost them drives. Well if you can’t say anything nice, but it’s your job to break things down, you’re going to have to settle for the bad and the ugly.
