What happened there?
- 4th and 2, Ravens converted a fake punt, but the play didn't count because the ball wasn't considered set

- Ravens line up to go for it, confusion everywhere, Browns have to take a timeout because they have 12 guys on the field

- After the timeout, the Browns still have 12 guys on the field, they get called for it, first down Ravens

The official was actually laughing when he made the call

If you're in the Baltimore area and you're having trouble finding make up in a costume store, it's likely because the Cleveland Browns Traveling Clown Show beat you to it.

CLE has arguably the best run game in football, yet week after week they go away from the run on early downs to throw to their garbage WR corps with their garbage QB. Hunt or Chubb should touch the ball on no less than 60% of their plays. Run some 2 HB stuff... they and the line are the talent on the offense, use them.

They can tag him for one more year. I would be surprised if they did anything other than that.
They have him on the fifth year tender (about 18M) next year. They can tag him for a salary that is likely in the 30s the following year. Once you get to ‘24 the tag gets prohibitive, so theoretically they have 1-2 years to make a decision.

They NEVER use the 2 HB stuff. Ever.

It is criminal. Both Chubb and Hunt are fantastic pass catchers.

If the Ravens complete this drive for a TD, I think I will be doing something else than watching for the next 45 minutes or so.

Baker had a ton of leverage after last season. If he wanted to force the Browns hand and redo his deal he probably could have. Now... not so much.

Yeah, even with only the FG here, I can't tell you the final score of this one any more than I can whistle Zippidee Doo Da out of my urethra, but I can tell you it's a Ravens victory.

The Browns peaked on the first drive and then People Jones dropped a pass and not a single good thing has happened for the team on offense since. They missed a FG, too, obviously.

It's been pretty boring to watch Baker struggle.
