The Ravens are in the exact same spot they’d have been if their quarterback had been on hand for the birth of his son.
Flacco, who skipped a chance to witness the the miracle of life, is an innocuous 12-of-21 passing for 109 yards and the Ravens are down 6-0 to the Browns at halftime.
The Browns have played some salty defense, but the Ravens look disjointed when they have the ball. They’ve rushed for 27 yards, never looking like anything was established.
A pair of Billy Cundiff field goals, including a 51-yarder just before halftime, have staked them to an early leed. Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has made a few plays (including tight end Jordan Cameron for a 53-yard reception), but plays are few and far between in Baltimore.
