Cleveland 3 17 0 7 - 27

Baltimore 0 7 10 0 - 17

Thumbs up: Middle linebacker Ray Lewis. The Ravens' All-Pro was everywhere on the field, racking up 13 tackles and breaking up two passes. He nearly had the play of the game when he hurried Browns quarterback Tim Couch and then chased down receiver Quincy Morgan's fumble at the Cleveland 7. But officials overturned the play on a replay challenge, saying the pass was incomplete.

Thumbs down: Quarterback Elvis Grbac. His poor decisions cost the Ravens the game. He has had a hand in 17 of the Ravens' 25 turnovers this season.

Stat of game: 166 - Points allowed by the Ravens after 10 games. That is one more than last year's total of 165, the Ravens' NFL 16-game record for fewest points allowed.

Quotable: "Elvis Grbac is our starting quarterback. I think our best chance to win is with Elvis as quarterback." - Ravens coach Brian Billick when asked who is his starter.

Trainer's room: Ra-vens cornerback Duane Starks (strained groin) was injured in the first series and left the game for good in the second quarter. He is questionable for Sunday's game at Jacksonville. ... Tight end Todd Heap injured his thumb and was taken for X-rays. He will be re-evaluated today.
