"All I was seeing was touchdown." Will Hill on his walk-off TD that sealed the Ravens victory over the Browns on #MNF.

Ravens walk off with a kick-6 in Cleveland

The Browns had a chance to win in the final seconds on a FG, but the Ravens' special teams blocked the kick and Will Hill returned it 64 yards for a TD to lift Baltimore to a 33-27 win. That is the sixth blocked field goal return for a TD in the NFL in the last 5 seasons and first of this season.


Will Hill: 'I was praying for a block'

Said the Ravens SS after returning the blocked FG for the winning TD in the final seconds: "I was praying for a block and a miracle happened."



I truly apologize to Browns fans everywhere. You guys deserve better.. I'm solely speaking on behalf of my actions. Tough loss. Stay strong.

Austin Davis took over at quarterback for the Browns with 8:29 left as Josh McCown headed to the locker room with what appeared to be a right shoulder injury. The crowd muttered, but did not chant for Johnny Manziel, who began the game the team's third quarterback. Davis' first pass was incomplete, which brought more groans as the Browns trailed the battered Ravens by seven.

After the Browns went ahead 20-17, the defense gave up drives of 12 plays and 80 yards and 17 plays and 82 yards. Baltimore got 10 points out of the drives to take a touchdown lead.

Belichick really not happy with question

A reporter dared to ask Bill Belichick his emotions after seeing Rob Gronkowski down on the field. Note: Do not ask Bill Belichick about his emotions.

You knew this was going to be a close one. Ravens are only team in NFL history to have first 10 games decided by eight points or less.
