Question of the Day
“Whew,” coach John Harbaugh said. “That was a fight. That’s a really good football team. They are well coached, tough and physical. They are building something here. They are an up-and-coming AFC North-style team. That was an AFC North battle.”
The Ravens beat the Browns (2-7) for the 10th consecutive time. It was also Baltimore’s 15th straight win following a loss.
Phil Dawson kicked five field goals for the Browns.
SEAHAWKS 30, VIKINGS 20
At Seattle, Marshawn Lynch ran for 124 yards and a touchdown, rookie QB Russell Wilson threw three first-half touchdowns, and Seattle overcame 182 yards rushing by Adrian Peterson in a matchup between the top two rushers in the NFL.
Lynch ran for a 3-yard TD in the third quarter, while Wilson threw TD passes of 11 yards to Sidney Rice, and TDs of 6 and 11 yards to Golden Tate for the Seahawks (5-4).
Peterson and the Vikings (5-4) had 197 yards on the ground in the first half, but only had 46 yards rushing in the second half.
PANTHERS 21, REDSKINS 13
Cam Newton passed for 201 yards with a touchdown and ran eight times for 37 yards and a score as Carolina snapped a five-game losing streak. The visiting Panthers (2-6) were in desperate need of a win after a series of close defeats that had players questioning the team’s leadership.
Referee Carl Cheffers admitted there was an inadvertent whistle by the line judge on a first-quarter play when Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams scored on a 30-yard run.
According to a pool report, Cheffers said the touchdown stood after the officials discussed the play because, “We just felt when the whistle blew, that the player would have already scored.”
Robert Griffin III was 23 for 39 for 215 yards, ran 11 times for 53 yards and was sacked four times as the Redskins (3-6) lost their third straight.
LIONS 31, JAGUARS 14
At Jacksonville, Mikel Leshoure ran for touchdowns of 7, 1 and 8 yards, becoming the first player in franchise history _ including Hall of Famer Barry Sanders _ to run for three touchdowns in the first half.
Leshoure finished with 70 yards rushing as Detroit improved to 4-4, and Calvin Johnson had five receptions for 99 yards before the Jaguars (1-7) even managed first down. He finished with seven catches for 129 yards despite playing through a knee injury.
