Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco and receiver Anquan Boldin had a game to remember against the Cleveland Browns. The pair connected for three touchdowns. But it was Boldin's 27-yard score in the fourth quarter that put Baltimore ahead for good and gave the Ravens their first division win of the season.
The Browns led 17-14 in the fourth quarter after tight end Ben Watson caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Cleveland quarterback Seneca Wallace. The crowd at M&T Bank Stadium was stunned as Baltimore, a double-digit favorite, was close to being upset by a winless division rival.
But Boldin and Flacco had one more big play left in them. The receiver beat Browns cornerback Eric Wright for the third time and Flacco hit Boldin in the end zone to put the Ravens up 21-17 with 9:13 left in the game. The Ravens never relinquished the lead and won 24-17.
Boldin had his biggest game to date as a Raven, catching eight passes for 142 yards and three touchdowns. But it was his final touchdown in the clutch that brought Baltimore from behind and improved its record to 2-1 this season.
