Cleveland Browns Lose to Baltimore Ravens in Ugly Sunday Game

Ravens fans are celebrating today as their team took down the Browns in an ugly game. The Ravens had to work for it, but they were able to come out on top by six points. This brings the Cleveland Browns record to six-six and the Baltimore Ravens now hold an eight-three record.

According to Jim Trotter, "The Ravens were generous with the football, unable to hit on deep passes and hurt themselves with penalties, the worst of which was a false start on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line that forced them to settle for a field goal rather than go for the touchdown as planned."

Browns fans are upset about the loss. Trotter says "There was a clear sense of frustration and disappointment Sunday night following the loss in Baltimore. For the sixth time in seven games, the offense failed to score more than 17 points -- and against the Ravens, it had no answers for the mixture of coverages it saw. Baker Mayfield said he felt as good physically as he has in some time, but it wasn't evident in his performance. More troubling: The Browns' high-powered rushing game managed just 40 yards on 17 carries."

At dawsbynature, a Cleveland Browns fansite, writer Chris Pokorny called the game "almost as ugly as you can get. Both teams turned the ball over often, but at the end of the day, despite Lamar Jackson’s four interceptions, he made a few more clutch plays as Baltimore pulled off a 16-10 victory. The Browns are now 6-6 heading to their bye week, with a very grim look on their hopes of winning the AFC North."

Trotter disagrees. He says "Everyone is still in the running to win the division, particularly when we've already had the Ravens beat the Browns, who routed the Bengals, who swept the Steelers and thumped the Ravens earlier in the year."

You read that right. The Ravens > the Browns > the Bengals > The Ravens. Any mathematician can tell you that doesn't make any sense. Ask any NFL fan, however, and you'll get a different answer as to who's still in the running and who's out of the race.
