It was a game of two tales, with the first half showcasing the best version of the new Ravens offense and the second one offering the game-managing version of the squad. That said, the defense never relented and the D put its clamps on the Browns limiting Cleveland to a measly field goal throughout 60 minutes.

It's a shame that injuries never stop coming Baltimore's way. That's because, once more, the Ravens went to sleep Sunday with three more banged-up men and a fourth one in Arthur Maulet, who suffered concussion symptoms but cleared the protocol in time to return before the final whistle.
Daryl Worley, the best defender on the field for the Ravens on Sunday even in a brief spell spanning just nine snaps. He was targeted once and he broke up that pass while manning the free safety spot.
Malik Harrison appeared in 14 defensive plays in which he applied one pressure and hit rookie QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson once, also loggin one solo tackle and one assisted and stopping one offensive play.
Roquan Smith was as good as always, playing 60 of 69 total snaps and racking up seven solo tackles to go with four more assisted, applying two pressures, and hitting DTR once while also forcing a hurry.
Arthur Maulet defended 44 snaps completing five total tackles and allowing two receptions on three targets, though limiting opposing receivers to get just 12 yards for a 6.0 YPR average with six of those total yards after the catch.
Rock Ya-Sin had one of his best games donning Ravens' threads, taking 25 snaps and allowing just one reception on three targets though limiting the receiver to only two yards after the catch and no gain on the play.
