Final Score: Baltimore 14, Cleveland 6

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco might 
not be perfect, but try telling the Cleveland Browns that. 

Flacco,  just  hours after his  wife gave birth  to the couple's second child, 
passed for 211 yards and a touchdown as Baltimore beat Cleveland, 14-6, moving 
the quarterback to 11-0 all-time against the Browns. 

Flacco  missed the birth of his second child with wife Dana -- she had another 
boy about an hour before kickoff -- and went 22-for-33. 

The reigning Super Bowl champion Ravens (1-1) had their home opener -- finally 
--  after opening  on the road in  Denver Week 1. They celebrated with a video 
and  unveiled  a banner,  but lost  running back  Ray Rice  to an apparent hip 
injury in the fourth quarter. 

The  Ravens scored 14 unanswered points in the second half on Bernard Pierce's 
5-yard  touchdown run  and Marlon Brown's 5-yard catch for their 11th straight 
win over Cleveland. 

Brandon Weeden threw for 227 yards for the Browns (0-2) but left the game late 
in  the fourth quarter.  The Browns said Weeden's hand was being looked at and 
the Ravens said he had an injured thumb.
