Smith's late TD catch helps Ravens beat Browns
Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Joe Flacco connected with Torrey Smith late in the fourth for the go-ahead score and the Baltimore Ravens avoided a collapse in Cleveland, defeating the Browns, 25-15, on Sunday.
Phil Dawson kicked a 41-yard field goal, his longest of five makes on the day, to give Cleveland a 15-14 lead in the fourth, but Flacco drove the Ravens down the field on the ensuing possession, capping the drive with a 19-yard touchdown pass to Smith.
The Ravens offense did not pick up a first down in the second half until the go-ahead scoring drive. Flacco finished 15-of-24 for 153 yards, while Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce each had rushing scores for the Ravens (6-2), who defeated the Browns for the 10th straight time.
Rice led the Ravens rushing attack with 98 yards on 25 carries.
Brandon Weeden moved the ball down the field most of the day, but was never able to get the Browns' (2-7) offense into the end zone. He completed 20-of-37 throws for 176 yards with two interceptions for Cleveland, which was coming off a win against the San Diego Chargers.
Trent Richardson ran for a game-high 105 yards on 25 carries for the Browns in the setback.
