In a first half that featured five rushing touchdowns, the visiting Ravens took a 21-14 halftime lead over the Browns on “Monday Night Football.” Nick Chubb scored two touchdowns for the Browns, while Lamar Jackson’s two rushed touchdowns largely eclipsed Baltimore’s nearly ineffective passing attack.
Both teams scored touchdowns on their first discs. Chubb capped the Browns’ 81-yard drive with a seven-yard touchdown. Jackson’s five-yard touchdown six minutes later finished Baltimore’s 73-yard drive. Midway through the second quarter, Gus Edwards’ 11-yard touchdown gave the Ravens their first lead. Baltimore’s lead didn’t last long, however, as the Browns tied the score on Chubb’s 14-yard touchdown on Cleveland’s offensive possession. The Ravens responded just before half-time, as Jackson’s 39-yard finish to Mark Andrews set up Jackson’s 17-yard touchdown. Jackson, despite four sacks, rushed for 78 yards on seven carries in the first 30 minutes of the game.
