The Cleveland Browns had an impressive team win against the Baltimore Ravens in their Week 15 Saturday afternoon matchup.
The final score was 13-3.
Here are the studs and duds from the game.
1. Stud: Denzel Ward
Denzel Ward nearly had two interceptions.
However, his one interception came at a key time of the game to change momentum as the Ravens were nearing the red zone.

2. Dud: Cade York
Cade York missed two field goals after making two.
The problem with his misses is that after missing left, he overcompensated and missed right.
I’m giving Cade York a rookie pass, but he NEEDS to chat with Phil Dawson in Feb and March and figure out how to kick in Cleveland winters. Ya gotta figure it out, dude. #Browns

A consistent York is on our wish list for 2023.
3. Stud: Donovan Peoples-Jones
Early indications are that Donovan Peoples-Jones and Deshaun Watson are forming a great connection.
DPJ scored the only touchdown of the game.

4. Dud: More Browns D Injuries
In the midst of a great game, two players went out with injuries.
They were Jadeveon Clowney and John Johnson III.

The Browns’ defense cannot escape the injury bug, and it has been a huge dud all season long.
5. Stud: Jordan Elliott
The Browns blocked a Justin Tucker field goal!
For a special teams group that has not been great this season, Jordan Elliott led them to a shining moment at the right time.
Justin Tucker has that field goal BLOCKED by Jordan Elliott. What a play.

Elliott can put that play on his career highlight reel.
6. Dud: Michael Woods II
The Browns should have had another touchdown, but Michael Woods made a perplexing move and was out of position to catch what looked like a Watson touchdown.
What the hell is Michael Woods doing? That would’ve been a touchdown. #Browns

7. Stud: Jacoby Brissett
While everyone collectively held their breath when Jacoby Brissett came into the game at 4th and 1 hoping for a better outcome than last week, they got just that.
It was a trademark Brissett sneak that kept the drive going.
Jacoby Brissett gets the 1st down on the QB sneak. Should'a done this last week too. Big Love, No. 7 #Browns

The Browns made the Ravens uncomfortable all day long, and it resulted in a great team win.
