Quick Take: Crazy kick leads to Browns win

It was over when ...
Cleveland kicker Phil Dawson booted a 33-yard field goal in overtime, just minutes after his 51-yard field goal tied the game at the end of regulation. That kick was initially ruled no good as it careened off the left upright, down onto the crossbar and back onto the playing field. But the replay showed the ball had actually hit behind the crossbar and was good, sending the game into overtime.

Game balls
Who else but Dawson? After missing a frantic 52-yard attempt that could have forced OT in last week's loss to Pittsburgh, Dawson converted when it counted in Baltimore. He finished the game with four field goals (28, 39, 51, 33).

Key stat
The Ravens contained Josh Cribbs for most of the game, but the dangerous return specialist helped set up the game-tying FG with a 39-yard kickoff return and then ran back the overtime kickoff 41 yards to set up the Browns for their winning drive.
