Both the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns won their games Sunday as the AFC North started the week 2-0. Joe Flacco went 20 of 27 with 266 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens’ 26-10 win over the Dolphins, while Ray Rice had 83 yards rushing and 97 yards receiving. Billy Cundiff kicked four field goals. The Ravens also intercepted Chad Henne three times.
The Browns, meanwhile, shocked the New England Patriots 34-14 in a game that left the Patriots baffled:
"We were out of sync all day," Brady said. "It was not a good day at all. As an offense, we didn’t do much to advance the ball, and that includes the quarterback. If we play like we played today we are not going to beat anybody."
Colt McCoy went 14 of 19 for 174 yards for the Browns, while Peyton Hillis ran over the Patriots for 184 yards and two touchdowns. Since losing to the Steelers in Week 6, the Browns have now beaten the Patriots and the New Orleans Saints. The Browns are still only 3-5, but they can’t be considered a joke now at all.
The Ravens took a half-game lead over the Steelers in the AFC North.
