Ravens beat Browns 20-10, heading to playoffs

The Ravens defeated the Browns 20-10 and are heading back to the playoffs after a one-year absence from the postseason.

With a 20-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns, the Baltimore Ravens are heading to the postseason.

The Ravens got their win after a slow start, with Joe Flacco and the offense heating up over the final 15 minutes of the game in the fourth quarter. Flacco finished with 312 yards and two touchdowns on 22-of-36 passing.

Down 10-6 in the fourth quarter, Flacco heaved a deep pass to Torrey Smith that was caught for a 53-yard gain. On the next play, Flacco connected with Smith again for a 16-yard touchdown pass to put the Ravens up 13-10.

The Ravens sealed the game with a 2-yard touchdown to receiver Kamar Aiken, which was later followed by a game-clinching interception from Lardarius Webb.

The Ravens needed help to get in the postseason elsewhere and got it with the Chiefs beating the Chargers 19-7, despite the fact that Kansas City was forced to start quarterback Chase Daniel in place of Alex Smith (lacerated spleen).

Entering the playoffs, the Ravens will be the No. 6 seed. The final AFC seedings will be decided following Sunday's Broncos-Raiders and Steelers-Bengals games.
