Ravens studs and duds from crucial Week 12 win over the Browns
By Kristen Wong
The Baltimore Ravens did it again. After beating the Cleveland Browns in Week 12, the Ravens somehow remained on top of the AFC North with an 8-3 record.
Sunday’s game was one to forget for a host of reasons. The first half alone had two fumbles and three interceptions with both teams only scoring on field goals.
It was without a doubt one of the most bizarre performances of Week 12, and neither side really took control of the game. To describe the game in one word: chaos.
Baltimore hugely benefitted from a listless Browns team led by the continually unimpressive Baker Mayfield, but even the Ravens struggled to find a good sense of rhythm through all four quarters.
As with any AFC North interdivisional matchup at this point, the stakes in the Ravens/Browns game could not have been higher.
Had Baltimore lost, the Cincinnati Bengals would have moved into first place and clinched an automatic playoff berth for the time being.
Head coach John Harbaugh’s team can breathe a sigh of relief after hurdling over their first obstacle, but they have four more AFC North battles in their last six games.
The Ravens will need all their players in tip-top shape for this final stretch of the season, but naturally, some have been performing better than others.
Who are the studs and who are the duds from Sunday night’s dreary win?
