Browns lead Ravens, 6-0, at the half

Posted Sep 15, 2013

BALTIMORE -- The Cleveland Browns held a 6-0 lead over the Baltimore Ravens at halftime of Sunday’s game.

BALTIMORE -- On the strength of two Billy Cundiff field goals, the Cleveland Browns held a 6-0 lead over the Baltimore Ravens at halftime of today’s game from M&T Bank Stadium.

With two seconds remaining in the first half, Cundiff lined up for and drilled a 51-yard field goal through the goal posts in the Northeast end zone.

The Browns led the Ravens, 3-0, after one quarter of play after Cundiff converted a 21-yard field goal attempt on fourth-and-goal from Baltimore’s three-yard line with 8:40 to play in the first period.

The Browns’ five-play, 57-yard scoring drive got off to a quick start when quarterback Brandon Weeden ran a play-action fake and found tight end Jordan Cameron down the field for a gain of 53 yards on the first play from scrimmage.

On their first drive of the game, the Ravens moved the ball from their own 20-yard line to the Browns’ 32, but stalled and tried a 50-yard field goal. Justin Tucker’s attempt sailed wide right and the game remained scoreless with 11:07 left in the first quarter.

Earlier in the drive, Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo registered his first career sack, a nine-yard loss on a hit of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

Tucker pushed a second attempt wide right with 31 seconds remaining in the first half.
