Cleveland Browns, that’s how to win in the National Football League. The offense and defense step up big in the 40-25 win over the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.

Nick Chubb rushes for a career best 165-yards on 20 carries. 88 of them on the key play of the game.

Up 24-18 and momentum back with the Ravens, Chubb stole the momentum back with an 88-yard touchdown run. Chubb finished with three rushing touchdowns on the afternoon.

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry also had a career day. Landry hauled in eight receptions for 167-yards in just three quarters. Landry had to leave the game due to a head injury. Concussion protocol is likely staring Landry in the face.

The Browns defense forced three Ravens turnovers and also sacked quarterback Lamar Jackson twice. The Browns defense also forced Jackson to throw his first two interceptions of 2019. For the second week in a row, the defensive secondary steps up with three starters out of the game.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield had his best performance of his second season. Mayfield extended his consecutive games throwing a touchdown pass in tact. Backup tight end Ricky Seals-Jones caught Mayfield’s lone touchdown pass of the game, a nine-yard pass to open up the scoring in the first quarter. Mayfield finished the day 20 of 30 for 342-yards and the touchdown. Baker was only sacked one but also threw an interception.

Cleveland put up 530-yards of total offense against the Ravens defense. The penalties are getting better. Cleveland is flagged just six times for 41-yards.

The Browns improve to 2-2 on the season. Cleveland is in first place in the AFC North for the first time since 2014. The Browns are also 2-0 on the road to start a season for the first time since 1994. Cleveland made the playoffs in 1994, so hopefully that is a good sign for 2019.

The Browns play their third primetime game in a four week span in week five. Cleveland travels to Santa Clara, California to face the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football on October 7.
