The Ravens thought they had this game won when Phil Dawson appeared to miss a 51-yard field goal to tie the game….but the refs huddled said the kick was good. The Browns won the coin toss and went right down the field to win the game on a 33-yards Dawson field goal. Kyle Boller got the start in this game for the Ravens and he completed 22 of 41 passes for 279 yards with 1 TD pass and 2 interceptions (one of which was returned 100 yards for a TD by Brodney Pool of the Browns). He also carried the ball 2 times for 19 yards (9.5 ypc). Willis McGahee had another solid game against the Browns as he carried the ball 21 times for 102 yards (4.9 ypc) with a TD run. He also caught 2 passes for 24 yards (12.0 avg). Davard Darling had the best game of his NFL career as he caught 4 passes for 107 yards (26.8 avg) with a TD grab. Derrick Mason (6 rec, 83 yards) and TE Quinn Sypniewski (6 rec, 53 yards) both pitched in on the passing game for the Ravens. The Ravens finished up with 128 yards rushing on 25 carries (5.1 ypc) and they also completed 22 of 41 passes for 240 yards.
The Ravens defense didn’t play that poorly despite the Browns putting up 33 points. Ray Lewis was a monster in this game as he led the Ravens with 16 tackles, a fumble recovery and a interception that he returned 35-yards for a TD! Terrell Suggs also had a nice game with 9 tackles and a interception. The Browns finished up with 117 yards rushing on 34 carries (3.4 ypc) and they also completed 24 of 38 passes for 263 yards.
