“[Coach Harbaugh] was like ‘there’s no way they jump.’ … I don’t know if I’ve ever been in position for that to happen. It’s never worked.” – Joe Flacco “It seems that it’s the 15th time I’ve said this, (but) the guys played extremely hard.” — Pat Shurmur ————— The Browns’ plan to lull the Ravens to sleep with a 20-0 lead through most of three quarters almost worked.

First down at Baltimore’s 8-yard-line with 57 seconds on the clock and the Browns let the first half expire on

Might be best to let McCoy sit the finale

Browns coach Pat Shurmur held out the possibility that Colt McCoy could return Sunday when the Browns (thankfully) end their season against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also said McCoy has not yet been cleared to practice.

Browns Josh Cribbs Proves He Has Still Got it

Josh Cribbs missing in action for almost two years proves that he can still do it for the Cleveland Browns with an 84 yard punt return to get the Browns on the score board in Baltimore.

Baltimore Ravens defeat Browns; remain atop of the AFC North

Early on in the game the Baltimore Ravens (11-4) played like they wanted this game, actually they played like they needed this game.
