Monday night football this week was a divisional match up between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns.

Both teams were desperate for a win as Baltimore chased a second straight victory to improve on their 3-7 record while the Browns were looking to end a five game losing streak.

Late drama

The Ravens emerged as 33-27 winners but it all came down to some late drama in what is arguably the best end to a game since last year's Super Bowl.

With the game tied at 27, the Browns were in field goal range and had kicker Travis Coons ready to try and get a big win for Cleveland.

The field goal try didn't go as planned though as it was blocked and knocked down at the line of scrimmage, but the play didn't end there.

With the ball bobbling around, it was picked up by Baltimore safety Will Hill, who then headed for the endzone.

Hill went all the way in for the touchdown as time expired and the Ravens clinched a crucial victory.

More QB problems

All the talk ahead of the game was surrounding the quarterbacks of Cleveland after second year player Johnny Manziel was caught on video partying during the teams bye week.

Manziel was listed as active as the team's third choice quarterback and he unsurprisingly didn't get on to the field.

Starter Josh McCown did leave the game with a shoulder injury though and second string QB Austin Davis came in to fill the gap.

Davis did well after coming on, throwing for 77 yards and a 42 yard touchdown pass to Travis Benjamin that tied the game up at 27 and led to the last second drama.

McCown didn't return and will once again, the Browns starting quarterback question will be the talk of the media before they face the Cincinnati Bengals next.

Doesn't get easier

The Browns now face a home game against the Bengals who are flying high following a win over the St Louis Rams on Sunday.

For Baltimore, they face another road game against the Miami Dolphins who are quickly losing ground in the AFC East.
