Browns fall to Ravens, 24-17


BALTIMORE (AP) — Anquan Boldin caught three touchdown passes from Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens rallied for a 24-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Boldin made himself right at home in Baltimore, catching eight passes for 142 yards in a sensational performance.

After tossing a career-high four interceptions last week in a loss to Cincinnati, Flacco went 22 for 31 for 262 yards with out an interception. He had six turnovers in his first two games.

Flacco’s favorite target was Boldin, playing in his first home game after coming to Baltimore (2-1) from Arizona. Not only did Boldin reach 600 career receptions quicker than anyone in NFL history, but he caught TD passes of 8, 12 and 27 yards.

The last one, with 9:13 left, gave the Ravens a 21-17 lead.

Peyton Hillis ran 22 times for a career-high 144 yards and a touchdown for the Browns (0-3).
