What's up with Baltimore's Hauschka?

CLEVELAND -- Baltimore Ravens kicker Steve Hauschka has struggled to make the big kicks this year, and it’s one of the reasons the team is 4-4.

Hauschka missed another field goal for the second straight week. The kick would have given the Ravens a 3-0 lead over the Cleveland Browns in the first quarter. His missed attempt was for 36 yards.

Baltimore worked out kickers Billy Cundiff and Mike Nugent last week but continued to back Hauschka. The kicker also missed a potential game-winning kick against the Minnesota Vikings earlier this year.

It will be interesting to see if Hauschka bounces back in this game.
