Browns - Ravens: 3rd Quarter Notes and Evaluations

1st Quarter     2nd Quarter

Browns 7th Possession

  • First outside run to Richardson goes for 7 yards.
    • All runs can’t be outside but Richardson in space is impressive especially his cutting ability.
  • Outside run by Richardson loses 3 and pressure on 3rd leads to a punt.
    • A few first downs open the 2nd half well but can’t keep it going. Outside runs can cause negative plays.

Ravens 7th Possession

  • Ravens give the ball to Ray Rice for a first down.
    • Going away from Rice was not positive for the Ravens, expect more this half.
  • After a big pass play to Smith the Ravens go to their backup RB Benard Pierce for 2 runs for 3 yards.
    • Giving Rice rest is important but limits his touches significantly.
  • Underneath throws lead to 2 first downs.
    • Horton hasn’t found a way to cover the underneath routes yet.
  • Pierce powers close to the goal line then powers it in for a TD.
    • Two and a half quarters of quality play out the window, with the lead, on 1 touchdown drive.

  • Browns pickup first down on Devone Bess underneath route
    • Balance of Richardson and Bess leads to another first. Solid pair who gets good tough yardage.
