Flacco helps Ravens survive scare from Browns
Browns left tackle Joe Thomas said, “We felt it in their body language. They weren’t jumping and screaming. We were running the ball directly at them.”
Cleveland (0-3) passed the ball pretty well, too. Seneca Wallace went 18 for 24 for 141 yards and a score while subbing a second straight week for injured Jake Delhomme.
Josh Cribbs followed with a 19-yard run out of the wildcat formation. On the initial play of the fourth quarter, the Browns got their first points in the second half this season: a 1-yard pass to Benjamin Watson.
“We did a pretty good job of doing what we wanted to do,” Flacco said. “Guys made plays.”
On Flacco’s first throw, Cleveland safety T.J. Ward stepped in front of Derrick Mason on the sideline — and let the ball slip through his fingers.
The Browns then held the ball for 12 plays, the last a 38-yard field goal by Phil Dawson.
Baltimore answered with an 85-yard drive, culminating with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Boldin. It was the 600th career catch for Boldin, who reached the mark quicker than anyone in NFL history (98 games to 102 for Marvin Harrison).
Hillis scored from the 1 just before halftime to bring Cleveland to 14-10.
“I think we showed today that we can run the ball against one of the best defenses in the league. We played together today,” Hillis said. “I was proud of our guys.”
Notes: Ravens DE Cory Redding (concussion) left in the third quarter and did not return. … Johnson started his 100th consecutive regular-season contest. … Hillis‘ 22 carries exceeded his total in the first two games (17). … Baltimore has won five straight from the Browns.
