It was a bad week for most players on the offensive side of the ball.

Joe Flacco floundered in the first half of Baltimore's 24-18 loss to the Browns. Flacco wound up the leading rusher for the team with 25 yards.

The offensive line saw the same issues that plagued them all season.

But two players on that side of the ball did what they had to do to step up and make enough plays to keep the Ravens in position to win.

Those were receivers Torrey Smith and Marlon Brown.

Smith finished the game with five receptions for 78 yards, which included a 46-yard reception near the end of the first half that set the Ravens up for a touchdown to cut the game to 14-10.

Smith has been a key player for Baltimore's offense all year, as he's been someone that can spark the offense with a big play at any moment.

Brown caught five passes for 54 yards and two touchdowns, the first coming after Smith's big catch near the end of the first half. Brown's second touchdown cut the game to 21-16, to which he then added a reception for a two-point conversion to cut Cleveland's lead to 21-18.

The Browns were able to add a field goal after a long drive and the offense did not have enough time to sustain a game-winning drive.

One key to a Ravens turnaround will be these two players. If Smith and Brown can help the offense move the chains and sustain some momentum, then maybe this team can get things turned around.
