Ravens Gameday

December 18, 2006


McNair sidelined

Cleveland scored first with Phil Dawson's 51-yard field goal, and things looked bleak for the Ravens when quarterback Steve McNair left the game after Browns linebacker Andra Davis stepped on his throwing hand. But rookie strong safety Dawan Landry returned an interception 37 yards to the Browns' 16-yard line, and Jamal Lewis darted up the middle for a 7-yard touchdown.


Browns: FG Dawson 51, 9:43. Ravens: J.Lewis 7 run (Stover kick), 6:39.

2 -- RAVENS 17, BROWNS 10

Boller up and down

The Ravens opened the quarter with a 9-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Boller to fullback Ovie Mughelli. But another promising series ended when Boller was intercepted by cornerback Leigh Bodden in the red zone. The Browns ended the half with a six-play, 70-yard touchdown march, capped by Joe Jurevicius' 3-yard catch.


Ravens: Mughelli 9 pass from Boller (Stover kick), 14:14.

Ravens: FG Stover 38, 2:39.

Browns: Jurevicius 3 pass from Anderson (Dawson kick), :54.

Trading touchdowns

Cleveland tied the score at 17 when rookie quarterback Derek Anderson found receiver Braylon Edwards in the back of the end zone for a 14-yard strike with 6:29 left. Boller needed just 65 seconds to respond, heaving a 77-yard touchdown bomb to rookie receiver Demetrius Williams.


Browns: Edwards 14 pass from Anderson (Dawson kick), 6:29.

Ravens: D.Williams 77 pass from Boller (Stover kick), 5:24.

4 -- RAVENS 27, BROWNS 17

Ravens `D' clamps down

Cleveland went three-and-out on its first two possessions and failed on fourth down on its final series, compiling just 12 yards of offense. Stover's 22-yard field goal closed out the scoring and the victory for the Ravens.


Ravens: FG Stover 22, 2:53.
