Browns edge Ravens 12-9 in overtime on knuckleball FG
Rookie Greg Joseph’s 37-yard field goal — a knuckleball that barely cleared the crossbar — with two seconds left in overtime gave the Cleveland Browns a 12-9 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
After rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield drove the Browns (2-2-1) into position, Joseph, who was signed after Week 2 following Zane Gonzalez’s release, lined his kick through the uprights to give Cleveland its first AFC North win in 19 tries.
As Browns fans celebrated just the team’s second win in two seasons, Joseph was mobbed by his teammates following Cleveland’s third OT game in five weeks.
The Ravens (3-2) had plenty of chances, but Joe Flacco threw a costly interception in the first half and the Browns blocked one of Justin Tucker’s field goal tries.
Mayfield passed for 342 yards and threw a 19-yard TD pass in his first start at home. He completed a key third-down pass for 39 yards to Derrick Willies on Cleveland’s winning drive.
