(BALTIMORE) — Joe Flacco threw and ran for a touchdown, while throwing for 356 yards, leading the Baltimore Ravens (3-1) to a 23-16 win over the Cleveland Browns (0-4).
“Hats off to our players,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said after the game. “It’s tough to win in this league. Sometimes your going to win and your going to look great doing it in one phase, or two phases or all three phases. And sometimes your going to win and it’s not going to look great. But you got to find a way to win anyway.”
The Cleveland Browns had two desperation chances to throw the ball into the end zone at the end of regulation, but weren’t able to complete either.
“A game like this comes down to a play or two,” Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said. “I think we can look throughout the game, especially in the second half, and we can all point to a play or two that made the difference in a seven point game.”
As for the return of the original officials, things went smoothly, and no controversial calls were made.
