CLEVELAND -- Baltimore’s rookies came through and the Ravens’ old man kicked it in too.

Matt Stover, the 40-year-old specialist, booted three field goals and linebacker Terrell Suggs returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown to end Cleveland’s last threat with 2:43 remaining as Baltimore rallied for a 37-27 win over the up-and-down Browns.

Stover, who ranks fifth in league scoring history, made field goals of 41, 32 and 22 yards for the Ravens (5-3), who trailed, 27-13, in the third quarter before storming back by scoring 24 unanswered points to beat the Browns (3-5) for the second time this season.
