Game balls: Ravens players that stood out in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Browns

The best performers from the Ravens' 23-21 win over Cleveland.

Jason Miller

Joe Flacco

Flacco moved the Ravens down the field for three scores, including the game-winning field goal. He went 19 of 31 for 217 yards, 1 Touchdown, and 1 Interception.

The offensive line

Joe Flacco was never sacked by the Browns, and Lorenzo Taliaferro and Justin Forsett had plenty of room to run on a day where the Ravens would run for 160 yards and a touchdown, gaining 4.8 yards per carry.

Kyle Jusczcyk

Jusczcyk had a break-out game, catching 3 passes for 54 yards and a score. The multi-talented fullback from Harvard was a reliable target from Joe Flacco something that may become more valuable after Dennis Pitta's injury.

Special teams

Sam Koch had 158 yards punting, the Ravens coverage unit pinned the Browns deep in their territory on their final possession, Asa Jackson blocked an important field goal, and Justin Tucker was 2 for 2 kicking. The entire special teams unit played well.

Steve Smith

Steve Smith looks younger than 35, as he caught 5 passes for 101 yards, including a long one that put the Ravens in field goal position.

Player of the Game

Rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro had 91 yards and a touchdown off of 18 carries. His hard-nosed rushing style provided balance to a Ravens' offense that couldn't run in 2013.
