Baltimore Ravens – 24, Cleveland Browns – 10 In this game, neither quarterback mattered a whole lot, and the winning QB actually mattered the least.  Joe Flacco (157 total yards) got the win, but didn’t even complete 50% of his passes as his team mostly won without him being very involved.  Colt McCoy (204 total yards, 1 TD, 1 INT) did throw a TD pass, but really that came with about four minutes left to go in a game that was well decided at that point.

Ed Dickson (3-47) was the best receiver for the day for the Ravens, and all of his catches and yards came in the first half.  Neither Anquan Boldin (2-32) nor Torrey Smith (1-32) were factors, as the Ravens were just happy to do what everyone else does against the Browns, and that’s run the ball down their throats.
Greg Little (3-18) did well… very little.  Ben Watson (3-34) did his best Owen Daniels impression by gathering 3 for 30, although it was sleeper-that-hasn’t-woken-up-all-season TE Evan Moore (2-28, 1 TD) that got the lone passing score.

The only thing that really mattered in this game was Ray Rice (29 car., 204 yards, 1 TD; 2 rec., 10 yards), who ran roughshod all over the Browns defense.  Even Ricky Williams (16 car., 76 yards, 1 TD) had a worthwhile game, and fantasy owners in dire straits for the playoffs should take note; the Colts come to town and Williams could get lots of garbage time play.

Peyton Hillis (12 car., 45 yards; 1 rec., 52 yards) returned to the lineup and looked halfway decent… that it until he left the game with an undisclosed leg injury.  Sigh.
