exactly who to blame for Baltimore's loss.He pointed the finger at himself."Put that on me [url=http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-genard-avery-jersey]White Genard Avery Jersey[/url] ," the Ravens receiver said.Crabtree let a possible game-winning touchdown pass from Joe Flacco slip through his hands in the fourth quarter Sunday as the Ravens, who looked so impressive last week in a win over Pittsburgh, were beaten 12-9 in overtime on Sunday by the resurgent Cleveland Browns.Crabtree's drop wasn't the only issue for the Ravens (3-2), who couldn't get anything going on offense and then had their defense fail them in the closing minutes of OT.But for all their problems, the Ravens might have pulled out another AFC North win if Crabtree had squeezed Flacco's throw with a minute left.With the Ravens down 9-6 and facing a third-and-10 at Cleveland's 14-yard line, Flacco fired his pass over the middle toward a leaping Crabtree in the back of the end zone. Crabtree got both hands on the ball, but it bounced off him and instead of taking the lead, the Ravens settled for Justin Tucker's 32-yard field goal with 56 seconds remaining.It wasn't an easy catch, but it's one Crabtree has made countless times. He had two other drops earlier in the game."You gotta finish," said Crabtree, who signed with Baltimore in the offseason after three years in Oakland. "I've been there and done that, and this go-around I can't even jump. I gotta get back in the lab and work on my concentration. That's all it is. It's football. You gotta see the ball and catch the ball."If I have to catch 2,000 balls a week in practice, I'm going to have to do that."It was one of those days for the Ravens, who failed to take advantage of good field position in the first half [url=http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-david-njoku-jersey]Youth David Njoku Jersey[/url] , and allowed Browns rookie Denzel Ward to come off the edge and block Tucker's field-goal try on the final play of the first half.Flacco completed 29 of 56 passes for 298 yards and threw a costly interception in the first half when the Ravens were driving for another score.On second-and-goal at Cleveland's 2, Flacco's pass intended for tight end Nick Boyle was deflected by defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah and picked off by Ward.It was just Flacco's third pick this season, but it felt ominous on a day when neither offense could get into a rhythm."I was just trying to put it at his feet," Flacco explained. "It was just one of those unfortunate ones. I was just trying to get the ball out of my hands and go to the next down, to be honest with you."As poorly as they played, the Ravens may have gotten a bad break in overtime.On Baltimore's first possession in OT, running back Alex Collins ran for 17 yards but receiver Chris Moore was called for an illegal block, moving the ball back and out of range for Tucker, the most accurate kicker in league history, to try a long field goal."The guy came down, got cut back on and Chris never really touched him," Flacco said. "He just tried to avoid him, as far as I'm concerned. That's just one of many plays that we probably could have made in order to get the game turned our way."The Ravens lost for just the third time in 22 games to the Browns, who improved to 2-0-1 at home and 1-0-1 in the division.Baltimore's defense did its part — the Ravens still haven't given up a second-half touchdown — but couldn't stop rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield in overtime. The Browns were backed up near their end zone, but Baltimore let Mayfield scramble for 13 yards and then gave up a 39-yard pass play to rookie Derrick Willies [url=http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-christian-kirksey-jersey]http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-christian-kirksey-jersey[/url] , who got open over the middle."We have to execute regardless of what the situation may be," safety Tony Jefferson said. "We have to execute the call, and we didn't in that particular situation. We didn't finish. We've been trying. We've been doing a good job at that, so far this season. Today we fell short of doing that, but we have a good opportunity coming up against Tennessee."We have a week to get back in the lab and try and fix those things so that they don't re-occur in particular situations like today." The Browns shook up their coaching staff after three straight losses and the new regime’s first effort has resulted in some offensive success.Cleveland punted to open the game, but scored on their next three possessions while putting up 217 yards of offense. The last of those yards came on a 19-yard pass from Baker Mayfield to running back Duke Johnson. The Browns went for two — they did the same after their first touchdown — and failed to convert, so the Chiefs remained ahead 21-15 at halftime.In order for the Browns to pull any closer, they are going to need a better defensive plan in the second half. The Chiefs scored touchdowns on their first three possessions and will get the ball to start the second half.Kareem Hunt opened the scoring by taking a screen pass 50 yards for a touchdown and he provided his team’s final points of the half with a one-yard touchdown run. That makes 12 touchdowns on the year for Hunt, who scored 11 as a rookie and shows no signs of slowing down.That’s also true of Patrick Mahomes, who now has 28 touchdown passes on the year after throwing one to Travis Kelce as well. Len Dawson set the franchise record with 30 touchdowns in 1964, but he may have company by the time this game comes to an end.Mahomes is 12-of-17 for 232 yards while Mayfield is 16-of-22 for 153 yards in their first meeting since a Texas Tech-Oklahoma game in 2016. That one ended with 1,279 passing yards between the two teams, which is likely not a number we’ll hit this Sunday. Things are shaping up for an entertaining final 30 minutes, though.
