CLEVELAND — The Browns were up 7-3 over the Ravens after one quarter of play at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The Browns scored their touchdown after a couple of great catches by Greg Little and Josh Gordon to set up a 4th-and-1 at the 1-yard line. Jason Campbell then hit Davone Bess on a 1-yard TD pass to give the Browns a 7-0 lead.
Baltimore followed that drive with a drive of their own that led to a 51-yard field goal by Justin Tucker. Campbell was injured late in the first quarter after a Haloti Ngata late hit. He left the field with a rib injury.
One defensive lapse by the Browns allowed the Ravens to cut the Cleveland lead from 14-3 to 14-10 in the 2nd quarter.
Joe Haden and Chris Owens got mixed up on a pass play, which allowed Torrey Smith to catch a 47-yard pass from Joe Flacco in Browns territory.
Flacco then found Marlon Brown for a Ravens TD, which cut the Browns lead to 14-10. Cleveland scored its second touchdown of the game when Jason Campbell hit Davone Bess, who made a quick move, sending the defender to the ground. It was Bess’ first multiple TD game of his career.
The Browns dominated the 3rd quarter, especially defensively.
Cleveland was forced to punt on 4th down midway through the 3rd quarter, but Tandon Doss fumbled the punt, which the Browns recovered at the 11-yard line.
Jason Campbell then hit Gary Barnidge for a TD pass to extend the Browns lead to 21-10. The TD pass was Jason Campbell’s third of the game. It marks the 3rd time in Campbell’s career that he has thrown 3 TD passes in a game.
The Browns continued to dominate the Ravens in the 4th quarter, adding a Cundiff field goal for good measure.
The Browns ended their 11-game losing streak to the Ravens with a 24-18 win.
The Browns have a bye week next week and will visit the Bengals on November 17.
