Browns fall to the Ravens, 27-10, as 0-16 looms closer

  • This fumble after a sack was one of De Shone Kizer's three turnovers Sunday

The Cleveland Browns did not have many positives to hang their hat on after an embarrassing loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

- After a strong performance last week, DeShone Kizer was due for a bad one. With the dream of the playoffs still alive for Baltimore, a win against the hapless Browns is a must if they are to stand a chance of securing a Wildcard spot. The loss leaves the Browns at 0-14 on the season and 1-29 under head coach Hue Jackson, and concludes the first season where they went 0-8 at home since 1999. Cornerback Brandon Carr ended any thoughts of a Browns comeback when he intercepted Kizer in the end zone early in the fourth quarter.

Browns quarterback, who achieved the almost-impossible feat of throwing for minus-12 yards in the first quarter, hit Coates on a slant. Breshad Perriman was active for just the second time in the past five games and made one catch for 9 yards, and Michael Campanaro had one catch for 17 yards, just his second catch in his past four games. His first pass following the Browns' first touchdown was a 30-yard rope to Mike Wallace down the left sideline, placing the ball perfectly between the white line and Cleveland defender.

On the next play, Browns running back Isaiah Crowell burst through the line for a 59-yard gain.

Kizer finished the day 2o-of-37 for 146 yards, two interceptions and two sacks.

When the Ravens have won this year, this has often been the formula: Create turnovers that either directly become points - Williams' score was the Ravens' fifth defensive touchdown this season, all coming in wins - or give the offense a short field to work with. Baltimore's 5 defensive TDs in 2017 ties them with Detroit for second in National Football League this season.

The Ravens, who entered the game ranked second in turnover-margin at plus-13, came up with nine turnovers in two games against the Browns. The Packers will need to win their remaining three games to have any chance of making the playoffs and the return of Aaron Rodgers from injury has come at the ideal time.

And the Browns have gone 4-47 in their past 51 games.
