BEREA, Ohio -- Jason Campbell remains the Cleveland Browns' starting quarterback.

Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Monday that Campbell's performance in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs earned him the start this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens.

"Jason played very well," Chudzinski said. "He was able to manage the game, he was able to escape and get out of some trouble, create some plays.

"He did a good job from a decision-making standpoint, protecting the football. And he gave us a lift in that game."

Campbell threw for 293 yards with two touchdowns in the Browns' 23-17 loss. He also overcame a slow start to have the Browns within three points in the fourth quarter.

The Browns went three-and-out on their first three possessions and did not have a first down in the first quarter.

"Jason stood in the pocket and made some crucial, crucial throws," Browns receiver Davone Bess said. "He had a really solid game."

Chudzinski said the Browns started Brandon Weeden earlier in the season because they didn't know a lot about him and he had played well during preseason and training camp practices.

"The production [from Weeden] hasn't been there in the regular season," Chudzinski said.

Chudzinski referred to Weeden as a "developing player."
