3 things we learned in Browns win over Baltimore

The Cleveland Browns won their sixth game of the season over the Baltimore Ravens and here are three things we learned in the victory
Week 15 was a good one for the Cleveland Browns as they won their sixth game of the season, knocking off the Baltimore Ravens 13-3. It was a cold night where the snow started to fall but Cleveland toughed it out and knocked off their divisional rivals.
In the win, there were several positives to take away and here, we look at three things we learned about the Browns on Saturday.
3. Browns defense continues to improve
Cleveland’s defense has been a problem this season and most of the blame has been put solely on the shoulders of Joe Woods. While it’s fair to question the defensive coordinator, he should also get credit when things go well.
And on Saturday, that was the case.
The Browns found themselves against a backup quarterback in Tyler Huntley and they made life tough on him — which hasn’t always been a given when they face backups. According to Myles Garrett, who gave credit to the coaches, this showed exactly how good they can be on this side of the ball.
"“It showed who we can be,” Garrett said via Dan Labbe of Cleveland.com. “We just have to put it all together. Tonight, it came all together.”"
For the past couple of weeks, the Browns defense has been showing signs of life. Many players have responded to some adversity as they continue to see linebackers head to the IR.
Injuries continued to be a problem as John Johnson III was forced to the sideline after putting together his best game of the year.
This doesn’t absolve Woods of all blame for their struggles but it was nice to see a glimpse of the defense that we saw in 2021.
