NFL scores, Week 9: Ravens beat Browns, while Bengals lose

The Baltimore Ravens continued to add distance between themselves and their AFC North competition by beating the Browns 25-15 Sunday afternoon, moving to 6-2 in the process.

The Browns held their own, and even took a 15-14 lead in the fourth quarter as Phil Dawson kicked his fifth field goal of the game. Ultimately, though, the Browns' inability to score touchdowns hurt them, and the Ravens swooped in with a 19-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Torrey Smith to take the lead for good with 4:26 left to play. Ray Rice had 25 carries for 98 yards and a score, while Trent Richardson had 25 carries for 105 yards for Cleveland.

Meanwhile, in the other AFC North game, the Bengals lost 31-23 to the Broncos, falling to 3-5 on the season. Peyton Manning had two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter for Denver, while Andy Dalton threw for 299 yards but was sacked five times in the loss for the Bengals. A.J. Green had seven catches for 99 yards and a touchdown for the Bengals.

The Steelers are now a game and a half behind the Ravens heading into their matchup against the Giants late Sunday afternoon.
