Game Pass Rewind: Dominant 2nd half highlights a romp in Baltimore

Earlier this spring, the NFL announced it would offer free access to its Game Pass platform. That means fans can watch ANY game dating back to 2009.

Over the next few weeks, we'll be highlighting some of the most re-watchable Browns games -- for a variety of reasons -- on the list. Today, we're going back to one of the most memorable games of last season, when Nick Chubb ran wild in the second half of a big win at Baltimore.

Who: Browns at Ravens

When: Week 4, Sept. 29, 2019

The Stakes: After a disappointing Sunday Night loss to the Rams, the Browns entered the matchup with a 1-2 record. Baltimore was coming off its first loss of the season and boasted a 2-1 record.

What happened: A back-and-forth first half led to a Cleveland-dominated second half in which Nick Chubb sealed the victory with an 88-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. The 40-25 final score didn't fully represent the way the Browns controlled the game's final 30 minutes.

It was over when …: Dontrell Hilliard put an exclamation point on a 30-point Browns second half with a 1-yard touchdown run just before the 2-minute warning, giving Cleveland an insurmountable 22-point advantage.

They said it, Part 1: "It's one of those things where you pick your poison of what you want to take out of our offense, and we had to be very good at working on whatever they're not taking out, we have to be good at that. We knew exactly how they were trying to attack us and we did our job." -- Baker Mayfield

An offensive awakening: Cleveland's offense just didn't look right through the first three games of the season. That all changed starting with the second drive of this game, when Mayfield capped a 13-play, 84-yard possession with a touchdown pass to Ricky Seals-Jones. The Browns, thanks to 342 passing yards from Mayfield and 165 rushing yards from Chubb, wound up finishing the game with 530 yards, their largest total in 12 years.

A defensive statement: The Ravens averaged better than 511 yards per game in their first three games of the 2019 season but were limited to 395 on this day. Cleveland never really let Lamar Jackson get going, as he threw for 222 yards and threw his first two interceptions of the season. The Ravens finished with three turnovers after not committing one in their first three games.

They said it, Part 2: "We just sent a bunch of different looks at (Jackson) and we were sending different people at him because we've got to keep somebody close because he's special. Just hats off to the guys executing the game plan." -- S Damarious Randall

Hard to believe: The Ravens wouldn't lose again until the playoffs.

The game-changer: The Browns had the lead but were on their heels a bit as they took possession with 9:47 to play. The Ravens had just sliced into their lead and had the Browns deep in their own territory after a well-placed kickoff and a penalty. The crowd went silent, though, as Chubb burst through the line and outran everyone to the end zone for his 88-yard touchdown run -- the third-longest in Browns history.

They said it, Part 3: "Anybody could have run through that hole." -- Chubb

Unsung hero: How about Jarvis Landry? He had a monster game, catching eight passes for 167 yards, and laid it all on the line when he dove for the end zone on a 29-yard catch in the third-quarter. He also had one of his more memorable plays of the year when he caught a short pass from Mayfield and ran 65 yards while struggling to maintain his balance throughout it.
