NFL 2017 Week 15: Baltimore Ravens vs Cleveland Browns preview and prediction

Here's a look at the good and bad from loss No. 14 here in 2017.

The Browns didn't crack positive passing yardage until the late part of the second quarter, but one impressive drive of running resulted in the game's first touchdown. Punter Sam Koch pinned the Browns inside the 5-yard line for the third time in the game.

A 43-yard field goal by Justin Tucker in the final seconds of the third quarter made the score 27-10. Kizer was also intercepted on Cleveland's third drive by Eric Weddle, who snared an overthrow for his sixth pick of the season.

- After a strong performance last week, DeShone Kizer was due for a bad one. In this divisional battle Flacco put up 282 yards and a touchdown. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Ravens are 7.5-point favorites to knock off the Browns, who opened as 9-point home underdogs. His three defensive stops were his most in a single game since the Week 12 win over Houston and he picked up two hurries (his first multi-pressure game since Week 11) and a batted pass that nearly turned into an interception for Terrell Suggs, but for DeShone Kizer's intervention. His longest gain came down the left sideline midway through the second quarter.

Putin, Trump agree to exchange information
The call offered fresh evidence that Trump will continue to work with Putin, despite potential political liabilities. The White House added that both "discussed working together to resolve the very risky situation in North Korea".

Maclin finished with the 1 catch for 22 yards and 2.7 FanDuel points before leaving. A Johnson fumble set up the Ravens in Browns territory with less than 2 minutes to play in the first half, and Baltimore just needed three plays to get back in the end zone. It didn't matter because Baltimore needed 37 seconds and 3 plays to extend their advantage to 17-7 after Flacco hit tight end Benjamin Watson for a 33-yard touchdown with:59 to play.

The Baltimore Ravens won the game against the Cleveland Browns in convincing fashion.

After a week of close spreads from the Las Vegas oddsmakers, it would appear they are expecting a few more blowouts in Week 15. This was the very reason cited when coach Hue Jackson benched him earlier in the season.
