BALTIMORE - Ravens cornerback Cary Williams took his first career interception 63 yards for a touchdown, which helped catapult his team to a 23-16 win over Cleveland Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium. But it wasn't over until a pass by Cleveland's Brandon Weeden from the Ravens' 18-yard fell incomplete on the game's final play. Williams' key play came with the Ravens' holding a 16-10 lead with under a minute left in the third quarter. Weeden threw an out route to receiver Travis Benjamin, but Williams read the pass and jumped the route, taking the interception to the end zone. It took Williams 22 starts dating back to last year, including the 2011 postseason, for him to record his first career interception. The interception was needed for Baltimore as Cleveland almost rallied back to send the game to overtime. After running off 3:28 on its final offensive possession, and up 23-16, Baltimore was forced to punt with 1:13 remaining. Weeden then...

Cornerback Cary Williams had been having a rough couple games until now. Williams intercepted rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown.
The pick was Williams’ first in his career.
The Ravens now lead the Browns 23-10 heading to the fourth quarter.
Brandon Weeden has been getting better game in and game out. After a very lousy 5 percent quarterback rating in week 1, Weeden is becoming a better QB. After last week’s performance against Buffalo where he had the Browns in the game until the very end of the fourth quarter, Weeden seems to be getting a better understanding. I expect Weeden to put up big numbers...
I have heard all kinds of chatter from people who think Brandon Weeden is the great white hope of the Cleveland Browns and he is going to take them to the promise land. The truth of the matter is, Brandon Weeden is 0-4 as the Browns starting quarterback. Everyone is so excited because the Browns played a tough game in Baltimore last night. Listen people the Browns lost the game and...
BALTIMORE -- Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams took a gamble. He recognized the formation the Cleveland Browns were in on third-and-5 from the Baltimore 43-yard line with just over 20 seconds remaining in the third quarter. When he saw Browns receiver Travis Benjamin go in motion, he had a feeling what would happen next. He didn't know for sure, but it was a risk...
“We battled, we came up short and we fought our [tails] off.” — Brandon Weeden
“He battled.” — Pat Shurmur on Weeden
“Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and his young, inexperienced receivers grew up a lot in Baltimore Thursday night, making the Ravens sweat it out until the last play of the game when they had a chance to tie it.” — Mary Kay Cabot
The Cleveland Browns head coach says he sees some progress in rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden, but he said, When You Really Make Progress Is When You Lead Your Team To Victory. It is obvious Weeden has progressed to the point of leading his team to victory yet. The Browns are the only team in the NFL that is off to an 0-4 start. The Browns have now lost their last 10 games in...
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little (second in drops last season) continued his catching problems last night against the Baltimore Ravens, dropping a total of five catches, including a great Brandon Weeden would-be-touchdown pass that he had right in his hands.
“My job is just to beat the guy and get through the middle of the field,” Little said. “[Weeden] moved...
The Ravens will be playing their fourth game in 17 days, and third primetime game in their first four Thursday night when they take on the division rival Browns.
Cleveland is winless and has a rookie quarterback and running back combination in the backfield.
The winless part won’t change for Cleveland because the Ravens’ defense will harass Brandon Weeden into mistakes. Weeden...
The 0-3 Browns will return to primetime with a visit to Baltimore to take on the 2-1 Ravens.
This game will be the first following the end of the NFL referee lockout, with real referees on tap to officiate tonight. So this means no more complaints, no matter how valid, can be attributed to poor officiating!
After a terrible performance in Week 1, it looked like...

A game that featured nearly 800 yards in offense, an interception return for a touchdown, helmet-loosening hits and a thrilling finish may best be remembered for what it didn't have: Controversy over the officiating.
The regular officials returned to the field Thursday night, and they nearly had to work overtime on their first day back. Rookie Brandon Weeden misfired on two...
A few dropped passes, none no bigger than Greg Little's drop late in the fourth quarter hamper the Browns once again.
Rookie QB Brandon Weeden pushes the Baltimore Ravens to the edge as rushing attack abandoned.
The fan reaction to the return of the regular NFL referees in time for the Cleveland Browns to play the Baltimore Ravens is funny. While some fans where excited to see the return of the regular NFL refs, other said the Browns are going to need a lot more than the regular NFL refs to get a win against the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL extended the deal for 8 years to bring the referees...
With the NFL reaching an agreement with the officials to return to refereeing the league, it has kind of gotten lost in the shuffle that there is an actual game tonight. And at first glance, you’d think any match up consisting of the Ravens, who look like rue Super Bowl contenders in the early going, facing off against the hapless Cleveland Browns would be a pushover. But there...
