Instant analysis: Ravens beat Browns, 24-10

Matt Vensel, Sports Blitz: My game ball goes to

Cam Cameron

for running the ball early and often with

Ray Rice

against an overmatched run defense, and props to the


defense, too, for smothering

Colt McCoy

and putting the clamps on

Peyton Hillis


Ron Fritz, head of sports: The Ravens did what they had to do on the road against a really bad team, the

Cleveland Browns

. Are all the Ravens’ road demons exorcized? Hard to tell because the Browns were so pitiful.

Kevin Van Valkenburg, staff writer: You could nitpick about a few things if you really wanted to. The Ravens red zone problems continue and

Billy Cundiff

needs to figure out why he's pushing every kick to the right. But overall, there was a lot to feel good about. Cleveland's run defense was atrocious, and the Ravens did a nice job feeding Ray Rice for a career day. It would be nice if Baltimore's receivers would help

Joe Flacco

a little more -- the Ravens seriously must lead the NFL in drops -- but overall, it was a solid win capped off by an electric return by

Lardarius Webb

, who is having a

Pro Bowl


Chris Korman, Ravens editor: At least the Ravens went out and did exactly what they were supposed to do. Ray Rice reinforced his spot as team MVP with so many twisting, turning, powerful runs and Joe Flacco managed a game he needed to manage. With

Jimmy Smith

adjusting to the speed of the NFL, the Ravens suddenly have a very deep secondary and might get away with freeing Lardarius Webb up to do more punt and kick returning. And hopefully we can finally stop covering the "letdown" thing for a while.
