Joe Flacco scores touchdown, Ravens lead Browns 10-7

The Ravens defense has been putting on a show against Cleveland.

The Ravens (8-6) kept alive their playoff hopes as a wild-card team.

Later in the drive, the Ravens again found themselves in a third and goal, but instead of Collins getting the call, Flacco walked in a quarterback keeper.

Baltimore had one drive stall at the Cleveland 13 forcing the Ravens to settle for a 31-yard field from Justin Tucker.

Joe Flacco threw for a season-high 288 yards and didn't turn the ball over. The Ravens had five takeaways in a 24-10 victory over the Browns in the second game of the season. Punter Sam Koch pinned the Browns inside the 5-yard line for the third time in the game. But Baltimore got some separation when Za'Darius Smith strip-sacked DeShone Kizer in the end zone. The Ravens finish their regular season with home games against the Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals, both of whom entered Week 15 as the two worst offenses in the NFL.

A Zane Gonzalez 45-yard field goal, which was set up by a Corey Coleman 16-yard catch with two seconds remaining in the half, made the score 17-10 at the half. Cornerback Brandon Carr ended any thoughts of a Browns comeback when he intercepted Kizer in the end zone early in the fourth quarter. Baltimore was coming off a last-second, 39-38 loss at Pittsburgh last week, and while the Ravens weren't at their best, they didn't do anything to help Cleveland. Tight end Nick Boyle couldn't make a hard catch on the right side of the end zone on second down.

On the next play, Browns running back Isaiah Crowell burst through the line for a 59-yard gain. Duke Johnson Jr. scored on a 12-yard run. Mike Wallace led the Ravens with six catches for 89 yards. It was Flacco's first rushing touchdown this season. Johnson ran 4 yards and had the ball stripped by Ravens safety Tony Jefferson. Perriman likely won't start, but the Ravens could look to get him involved if they get out to a lead against the winless Browns.
