Browns WR Elijah Moore and CB Greg Newsome score TDs 40 seconds apart

The Cleveland Browns needed less than a minute to draw within one point of the Baltimore Ravens midway through the fourth quarter.

First, quarterback Deshaun Watson found wideout Elijah Moore for a 10-yard touchdown with 9:04 left in the game. The score was Moore’s first as a Cleveland Brown and the touchdown cut the Ravens’ lead to 31-24 with a converted extra point.

The real fireworks came two plays later. Browns cornerback Greg Newsome II snagged a ball batted by defensive end Ogbo Okoronkwo and returned it 34 yards for the potential game-tying touchdown with 8:24 left in the game. It was Newsome’s first career interception since he was the No. 26 pick in 2021.

Kicker Dustin Hopkins missed the ensuring extra point attempt, though, to keep the Ravens ahead by one point.

The Browns defense forced a three-and-out on the Ravens’ next drive to get the ball back late in the fourth.
