The Good Guys took it to the Ratbirds in full on mode yesterday and despite some mistakes, finished like a champ to defeat the former Browns who now reside in Baltimore, 24-18.
Davone Bess and Greg Little had big days when the Browns needed them the most. Bess finished with just three receptions for 24 yards, including two touchdowns. Meanwhile, Little caught seven passes for 122 yards (17.4 avg.) and had catches of 46- and 32-yards.
The first score gave the Browns a 7-0 lead and he caught the ball from Jason Campbell as he was hit by two defenders. His second touchdown was a short crossing route on third-and-three. He caught the pass at about the Ravens’ 15 and put a move on Lardarius Webb and scooted into the end zone for the score to give the Browns a 14-3 lead with 10:08 left in the second quarter.
Campbell Injured Ribs: Campbell injured his ribs early in the game with 1:48 to play in the first quarter when DL Haloti Ngata landed on him, but played all but four plays. Campbell was replaced by QB Brandon Weeden and Weeden was 1-of-2 for -2 yards. Campbell returned on the next series and played the remainder of the game.
Campbell was 23-of-35 for 262 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed three times for 20 yards. His rating was 116.6.

He had a 146.7rating at halftime going 13-of-19 for 142 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He was sacked three times, all in the first half.
