Browns 5 Most All-Time Memorable Wins Against the Ravens

1. Browns 14, Ravens 13, Dec. 22, 2002 at Baltimore

This victory kept the Browns in contention for their eventual playoff berth, the only one for Cleveland since it rejoined the NFL. The win made the Browns 9-6. Their regular season-finale 24-16 home win over the Atlanta Falcons the next week — along with a couple other results around the league — clinched a wild card spot.

Tim Couch’s 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Mark Campbell with 29 seconds left was the game-winner. It was the 10th Browns game of the season decided in the final minute. They won five of those contests.

Cleveland, trailed, 13-7, with 2:18 to go when it began its victorious 92-yard touchdown march. Among the key plays was a short Couch pass that running back Jamel White turned into a 28-yard gain. On Couch’s touchdown toss, he faked a handoff before finding Campbell open in the end zone.

White’s 3-yard first quarter touchdown run had opened the scoring. He caught four passes for 63 yards. Wide receivers Kevin Johnson (five receptions, 44 yards) and Quincy Morgan (three for 50) also contributed with their pass catching.

Two weeks later, the Browns wasted a 24-7 lead and lost to the Steelers, 36-33, in a playoff game at Pittsburgh.

The loss to the Browns made the Ravens 7-8 and eliminated them from playoff contention. They finished 7-9.
