Final: Ravens 28, Browns 10, Hope 0

The Browns downward spiral continues as the Baltimore defense dominates. Here's what Barry was able to type into his fourth quarter blog between bouts of bashing his head on his keyboard...

I'm considering making this fourth quarter blog just a long stream of inventive obscenities. I'm just not sure I can keep that going for fifteen minutes of regulation football.

Heck, sure, I can.

Still, the Browns have to go out there even with their doom writ large, and so will I. Neither of us are very bright for doing this, but at least one of us is well-paid.

FIRST DRIVE (BROWNS): Incomplete, short pass, incomplete, punt.

SECOND DRIVE (RAVENS): Alex Hall gives us all a reason to live, sorta, with a sack of Joe Flacco on third and five. The Ravens punt, and Cribbs runs it back to the twelve yards to the Browns 31.


THIRD DRIVE (BROWNS): False start (McKinney), pass knocked down at the line, sack, incomplete. Net offense: –14 yards. Punt.

Anderson's QB rating is somehow falling, and is now at 35.1. There's still eleven minutes left. Noooooo!


FOURTH DRIVE (RAVENS): Starting at their own 45, Ravens run rookie Ray Rice relatively resourcefully to the Browns 34, but then the back coughs up the ball and it's picked up by D'Qwell Jackson. The Ravens challenge it, and it's overturned, because the Gods Hate the Cleveland Browns. As does a non-trivial part of their fan base at this point.

With new life, the Ravens just start pounding the ball on the Cleveland offense. Cam Cameron doesn't need a lot of innovation at this point.

Browns ball, now with less than two minutes left.


FIFTH DRIVE (RAVENS): Anderson drops, eyes Edwards and fires COMPLETE to, um, Samari Rolle. Rolle goes for two yards to the Browns five, and it's take-a-knee time.

Anderson finished with a 22.9 passer rating.

FINAL SCORE: RAVENS 28, BROWNS 10
