CLEVELAND -- In Baker Mayfield's first home start as a Cleveland Brown, he got the win. The Ravens did not make it easy for Baker, as they took the Browns to overtime. After the Cleveland defense made back to back stops, all of the focus was on the offense as Baker was looking at a third down with time ticking quickly. Mayfield then completed a clutch throw to help drive the Browns deep into Baltimore territory, to set up a potential game winning field goal. With 10 seconds left on the clock, Browns Kicker Gregg Joseph lined up for a 37-yard field goal, and kicked a knuckleball through the uprights to give the Browns their first AFC North win in 19 tries.
The Browns have played three overtime games in the first five weeks of this season. If not for the constant struggles from special teams, the Browns could be unbeaten. Instead, the Cleveland Browns are sitting at 2-2-1, tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers at the bottom of the AFC North.
Cleveland Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward continued to be the playmaker that the Browns need on the defensive side of the ball. During a drive in the 2nd quarter, the Ravens seemed to be unstoppable, driving to the Browns 2-yard line. On 2nd and Goal, Joe Flacco rolled out to his right, and fired a pass into the endzone, which was intercepted by Denzel Ward. That wouldn't be the last time Ward made a difference in the first half. As the 2nd quarter was winding down, Justin Tucker attempted a field goal to tie the game, and Denzel Ward jumped the snap perfectly to block the kick.
The Cleveland Browns will look to win their third straight game at home on Sunday October 14th, as they will square off versus the Los Angeles Chargers., kickoff set for for 1:00.
