Ravens return blocked field goal attempt for TD and an unlikely win

CLEVELAND -- The Baltimore Ravens continued what has been a block party this month.

Defensive end Brent Urban blocked a potential winning 51-yard field goal attempt and Will Hill returned it 64 yards for a touchdown as time expired to lift the Ravens to a 33-27 win over the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football.

This marked the fifth game in which the Ravens have blocked a punt or a kick.

It was a memorable debut for Urban, who was playing in his first game after being activated off the injured reserve/designated to return list this week.

It looked like the Ravens were going to give the game away after Matt Schaub threw an interception with 50 seconds remaining. But the Ravens' special teams saved the day.

What it means: The Ravens (4-7) have their first winning streak in 11 months. Baltimore won back-to-back games for the first time since Weeks 14 and 15 of last season. This also allowed the Ravens to avoid getting swept by the Browns (2-9) for only the third time in franchise history. Baltimore is only two games back of the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5) for second place in the AFC North. This puts a serious dent in the Ravens' chances of landing the No. 1 overall pick.

What were they thinking? With the Ravens up 17-13 in the third quarter, Schaub threw a pick-six after hanging a pass on third-and-7. This has been a troublesome trend for Schaub. It was his sixth interception returned for a touchdown since 2013. In 2013, Schaub set an NFL record by throwing a pick-six in four straight games.

Fantasy watch: RB Buck Allen had a solid first career start with 84 total yards (55 yards rushing and 29 yards receiving) and one touchdown.

Ouch: Tight end Maxx Williams left the game in the fourth quarter with a concussion. The Ravens were without the starting left side of their offensive line. Tackle Eugene Monroe (shoulder) and guard Kelechi Osemele (knee) were inactive.

What's next: The Ravens play at the Miami Dolphins (4-7), who have fallen to last place in the AFC East after losing four of their last five games. Baltimore is 4-0 in Miami under coach John Harbaugh.
