It's kind of hard to write a review of a game where your team just embarrasses the other by providing CSI type evidence that you are in another league far and above your opponent. The Ravens went grade school on the Cleveland Browns as they as the 6th grader who punked a 3rd grader for their home made roast beef sandwich, ate in front of them at the lunch table and dared the 3rd grader to snitch. What would have made the Ravens victory better is if they took the kid's juice box and blanked the Browns, but they won 34-3.
Keith Olbermann summed it up best when he said “Tackling was optional,” for the lowly Browns. The Ravens piled yardage like it was clothing ½ off at the Barney's sale. Pick a running back, Willis McGahee or Ray Rice: Rice scored his first NFL touchdown (really?) and McGahee galloped in stride for 2 TD's of his own (I will forgive him for his fumble). CC's offense is producing quality numbers with both RB's producing 115 yesterday. QB Joe Flacco, threw dimes all day amassing 342 yards for a career high.
On the defensive side of the ball, CB Domonique Foxowrth got his secondary unit going with an interception of Brady Quinn which led to a McGahee touchdown. Organized Chaos clamped the Browns down for 72 yards rushing and a total of 182 yards of offense.
The Ravens rolled on the Browns with all components running smoothly. Now onto Foxboro for a tangle with the New England Patriots in week 4.
