Posted Dec 17, 2017

Cleveland falls to 0-14 with loss to Ravens

We’re breaking down the key stats from the Browns’ 27-10 loss to the Ravens. 

4 - Cleveland committed four turnovers (two interceptions, two fumbles) and did not force any on defense. Baltimore turned the turnovers into 17 points. The Browns have yet to win the turnover battle this season.

4 - Number of possessions the Browns started inside their 4-yard line. Three were the direct result of a punt from Pro Bowler Sam Koch.

146 - Passing yards for DeShone Kizer, who rebounded a bit after finishing the first quarter with minus-12. His longest pass of the day went 23 yards to Seth DeValve.

63 - One week after Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman spearheaded the Browns passing attack with 131 yards and two touchdowns, the duo was kept out of the end zone and finished with 63 yards on six catches.

17 - Baltimore’s tight ends and running backs accounted for 17 of Flacco’s 26 completions, netting 151 yards along the way. Tight end Ben Watson (4-74, TD) and running back Danny Woodhead (6-31) had the biggest days among the group.

59 - Isaiah Crowell busted loose for a 59-yard run in the second quarter, a much-needed boost to the offense that ultimately set up Cleveland’s first touchdown. It was Crowell’s fifth run of more than 50 yards since 2015.

6.8 - The Browns notched one of their best yards-per-carry totals of the season thanks largely to Crowell’s big run. The flow of the game, though, allowed them to attempt just 19 runs.

500 - Duke Johnson Jr. went over 500 receiving yards for the season with his first catch of Sunday’s game. He’s the first running back since Herschel Walker to amass more than 500 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons. He finished Sunday’s game with five catches for 40 yards.
