Defensively, the Cleveland Browns lead the division rival Baltimore Ravens 6-3 at halftime.

Neither team had much offense in the first half, all made field goals and both sides averaged just under 5 yards per play. Baltimore was particularly ineffective in the passing game, with Tyler Huntley completing just 9 of 15 attempts for 67 yards. The Ravens did have a chance for a touchdown early in the game, but were stonewalled on fourth-and-1 from the Cleveland 7-yard line. The ensuing drive led to the Browns’ first field goal, giving them an early lead.

Meanwhile, nearly half of Cleveland’s 43 total rushing yards came on one play, 18 yards from running back Nick Chubb (8 carries, 31 yards). Cleveland drove into the red zone late in the first half, but a pass from Deshaun Watson (13-for-18, 105 yards) intended for David Njoku (3 catches, 28 yards) in the back of the end zone fell incomplete when Njoku. his legs tangled with those of Ravens safety Chuck Clark. That sequence led to Cleveland’s second field goal of the contest, briefly giving the Browns a 6-3 lead that they carried into halftime thanks to Justin Tucker’s late missed field goal (!).
