fr24news– Lamar Jackson overcame the cramps and the Browns defense to lead the visiting Ravens to a 47-42 win over the Browns on “Monday Night Football”. Jackson, who temporarily left the game in the fourth quarter, devised two late practices after returning to the game. His 44-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown temporarily put the Ravens ahead. His four wins in Baltimore’s last practice saw Justin Tucker win the 55-yard game with two seconds left.
With the win, Baltimore swept the season series against Cleveland while improving to 8-5 on the season. The Ravens remain alive in the AFC playoff table, while the Browns (9-4) failed to gain ground over the Steelers 11-2 for the top spot in AFC North.
Both teams scored touchdowns on their first discs. Nick Chubb capped the Browns’ 81-yard drive with a seven-yard touchdown. Lamar Jackson’s five-yard touchdown run six minutes later ended Baltimore’s 73-yard touchdown run. Midway through the second quarter, Gus Edwards’ 11-yard touchdown gave the Ravens their first lead. Baltimore’s lead didn’t last long, however, as the Browns tied the score on Chubb’s 14-yard touchdown on Cleveland’s offensive possession.
Jackson’s 44-yard run set up Edwards’ 19-yard touchdown within three minutes of the third quarter. And after Kareem Hunt’s five-yard touchdown temporarily reduced the Ravens’ lead to eight points, Mayfield’s interception by Tyus Bowser gave JK Dobbins a yardage, as Baltimore took a 34- lead. 20 in the fourth quarter.
Cleveland rallied in the fourth quarter. They made a six-point game on the 21-yard touchdown pass from Mayfield to Rashard Higgins on a fourth play less than two minutes into the quarter. The Browns then took the lead on their next possession, with Mayfield keeping it himself for a five-yard score.
Jackson, who missed almost two full sets with cramps, threw his touchdown pass at Brown on his first comeback game in the fourth down. Jackson’s brilliance was quickly matched by Mayfield, who tied the game with a 22-yard throw at Hunt with 1:04 left. The Browns ultimately gave Jackson too much time, whose four completed passes for 38 yards helped Tucker win the game.
