Duke Johnson rushed seven times for 27 yards and caught 5-of-6 targets for 23 yards in the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.
Terrance West rushed seven times for 37 yards in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Browns on Monday night.
Making his Ravens debut after being promoted from the practice squad ahead of Week 11, West mixed in as the No. 2 back behind Buck Allen with Justin Forsett (arm) done for the season. Playing against the team that drafted him and dumped him earlier this year, West probably had a little more pep in his step. He broke off a long run of 16 yards and may have earned himself some more playing time down the stretch for a Baltimore team playing for nothing.
Isaiah Crowell rushed seven times for seven yards in the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.
As is normally the case, Crowell wasn't targeted in the passing game. He's legitimately been the worst running back in the league this season and is now averaging a pitiful 2.94 YPC on 114 totes with one touchdown. After Crowell went down way too easy and took a lightyear to hit the hole on back-to-back first-half runs, it appeared the coaching staff mostly benched him the rest of the game in favor of Duke Johnson. It's a move that should have been done long ago, but, ya know, the Browns are the Browns. Crowell is zip codes away from fantasy relevance.
Buck Allen rushed 12 times for 55 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 29 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Browns on Monday night.
In the first game without Justin Forsett, Allen got the start and played 36-of-61 offensive snaps, according to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke. The volume wasn't quite as high as we expected coming into the week, but Allen more than made up for it with his 13-yard touchdown catch on a dump-off from Matt Schaub where Allen "broke" four pitiful tackle attempts from defenders. Terrance West was promoted from the practice squad last week and carried the ball seven times for 37 yards in his team debut. Allen and West will likely share time the remainder of the season, with Allen seeing 15-18 touches and West mixing in for 6-8 of his own. Allen will be a mid-range RB2 next week against a similarly-bad Dolphins run defense.
Coach Mike Pettine said after Monday night's Week 12 loss to the Ravens that Josh McCown has a collarbone injury.
That's all the details Pettine provided, adding the team will know more Tuesday. If McCown suffered a broken collarbone, his season would be over. Austin Davis came on in relief, going 7-of-10 for 77 yards and a score. It's unclear who would get the Week 13 start against Cincinnati, Davis or Johnny Manziel.
Austin Davis completed 7-of-10 passes for 77 yards and one touchdown in relief of Josh McCown (shoulder) in the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.
Davis came into the game with just over nine minutes to go and the Browns trailing 27-20. He looked rusty his first few passes, but dialed up a deep ball to Travis Benjamin down the middle, hitting his receiver in stride for a 42-yard touchdown to tie the game. The Browns got the ball back at the Ravens' 46-yard line with just under a minute to go. Davis completed his first pass to Brian Hartline, but took nearly 30 seconds to run the next play, which he scramble to the 32-yard line and slid in bounds to keep the clock running, forcing the Browns to use a timeout. They ran it for no gain on the next play, used their final timeout, and attempted a 51-yard field goal that was blocked and returned for the game-winning touchdown. With McCown maybe done for the season, it's unclear if Davis or Johnny Manziel will get the start Week 13 against the Bengals.
Matt Schaub completed 20-of-34 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Ravens' 33-27, Week 12 win over the Browns on Monday night.
Schaub played pretty decently in the first half, completing 7-of-9 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown in the opening 30 minutes when the Ravens ran just 17 offensive plays. He hooked up with Chris Givens for a 48-yard deep bomb before dumping a ball off to Buck Allen two plays later for a 13-yard touchdown. Schaub came out in the third quarter and predictably tossed one of his patented pick-sixes to ILB Karlos Dansby to give the Browns a 20-17 lead. Schaub bounced back and led a touchdown drive that was finished off with a perfect out route throw to Kamar Aiken for a 15-yard score. Schaub almost cost the Ravens the game late in the fourth quarter, however, by tossing a second interception at his own 46-yard line with under a minute to go with the game tied 27-27. The Browns attempted a 51-yard field goal with three seconds left, but the kick was blocked and returned for a touchdown.
Ravens SS Will Hill returned a blocked field goal 64 yards for the game-winning touchdown in Baltimore's 33-27, Week 12 win over the Browns on Monday night.
With the score tied 27-27 with three seconds left on the clock, the Browns sent K Travis Coons onto the field to attempt a potentially game-winning 51-yard field goal. It appeared doomed from the start, as Coons hasn't made anything longer than 44 yards all year. The Ravens also jumped offsides early, but the Browns didn't snap the ball to catch them in time, and Coon's kick was then blocked by DE Brent Urban, who was playing in his first NFL game after two severe injuries to start his career. Hill scooped the ball up and took it up the sideline all the way to the end zone with the game clock at zeroes. The Browns definitely Browns'ed in comical fashion.
