Baltimore Ravens 23Cleveland Browns 16Welcome back regular officials.I have never been one to criticize or hate on the replacement officials before this week, BUT, this game did go a lot smoother and was finished much quicker and that is where I will stop. As for the game, the Baltimore Ravens came out quick and looked like they could almost do anything they wanted to against the Browns' defense.But after the first quarter the Browns' defense clamped down a bit. The Ravens only scored two offensive touchdowns and if it wasn't for the pick-six thrown by Brandon Weeden the game would have taken on a whole different feel.Baltimore Ravens (3-1): Joe Flacco had another good game and threw for 356 yards and one touchdown. Flacco also ran for a touchdown in which will probably be his only rushing touchdown of the season, so if you played him good call [Pats self on back].Ray Rice had a somewhat quiet night, mostly due in part to penalties, Rice had a couple long runs called bac...

How long will it take the Ravens to learn your best player should get the ball more than 25 times a game
I don’t know why week after week, I keep expecting something to change with the Baltimore Ravens play-calling. It might be I have too much faith that Cam Cameron will gain some sense, or maybe it is my fantasy football side doing the complaining. In the end, the Ravens just...

Tonight had such great potential, what with replacement refs and the Cleveland Browns on the field at the same time. But, no, the NFL and the real refs just had to settle their squabbles in time for tonight. After three weeks of chaotic deliberations of the rule book, the real refs will take the field. I feel a bit robbed. I was looking forward to a team being granted four timeouts...

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 real refs are much better
Great to see a smooth game played. The product may not have been the best, but at least the refs didn’t add an additional hour and half to the game with constant meetings, reviews and overall ***********. Welcome back, refs. Here’s to hoping Ed Hochuli kept in shape over the lockout.
There was noticeably less Cee Lo last night
