[b][i]Flacco leads Ravens to 20-14 win over Browns[/i][/b]
D'Qwell Jackson must feel as though he's stuck in a never-ending film loop, one in which the Cleveland Browns make the same mistakes over and over until the final whistle signals the end of yet another defeat.
Such was the case Saturday, when the Browns bungled their way to a 20-14 loss to the [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/Baltimore_Ravens_Nfl_Je rseys--pc-492-1]Baltimore Ravens[/url].[/b]
Down 20-14 with no timeouts left, the Browns lined up on defense after the two-minute warning with the Ravens facing a fourth-and-2 at the Cleveland 37.
It appeared obvious that Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco was merely hoping to draw the Browns offside. And right on cue, Cleveland rookie tackle Phil Taylor jumped across the line of scrimmage to give Baltimore a first down.
The [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/Oakland_Raiders_NFL_Jer seys--pc-509-1]Ravens [/url][/b](11-4) then ran out the clock on their eighth straight win over the Browns, including two this month.
Flacco went 11 for 24 with touchdown passes to Rice and tight end Ed Dickson. He also had a 33-yard run. While Flacco threw two touchdown passes and Rice ran for 87 yards to help the Ravens finish 8-0 at home.
Josh Cribbs had a career-high 84-yard punt return for a TD for [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/Cleveland_Browns_NFL_Je rseys--pc-501-1]Cleveland Browns[/url].[/b] Wallace went 19 for 33 for 147 yards in place of Colt McCoy, who was out with a concussion. Peyton Hillis ran for 112 yards, but Cleveland's offense mounted only one decent drive.
The Browns took the opening kickoff and moved from their own 26 to the Baltimore 30 behind the power of Hillis, who gained 30 yards on six carries. But on a third-and-1, Cleveland inexplicably went to the air, and Lardarius Webb intercepted Wallace's pass for Mohamed Massaquoi.
Flacco immediately threw deep for Torrey Smith, who drew a 60-yard penalty for pass interference on Mike Adams to set up a 5-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson.
Flacco made a big contribution to the Ravens to 20-14 win over Browns
[b]Houston[/b][b] Texans Andre Johnson out while tight end Owen Daniels will be a game-time decision.[/b]
The Houston Texans have already declared wide receiver Andre Johnson out while tight end Owen Daniels will be a game-time decision.
Andre Johnson is on the shelf again.
For a complete Thursday Night Football schedule, go to NFL.com/TNF .?
The Houston Texans' five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver will sit out Thursday night's game against the[url=http://www.comjerseysc om.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jer seys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-W holesale/Indianapolis-Colts-Nf l-Jerseys/][b]Indianapolis Colts[/b][/url] because of a strained left hamstring. It will be his ninth missed game of the season.
It has been an injured-plagued season for Johnson, who was sidelined for six consecutive games earlier in the season with a right hamstring injury that required surgery. He returned in Week 12 and played in two games before straining his left hamstring, which now has sidelined him for three games.
The [b][url=http://www.comjerseysc om.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jer seys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-W holesale/Houston-Texans-Nfl-je rseys/]Houston Texans[/url][/b](10-4) already have clinched the AFC South title, so Kubiak is staying cautious with the franchise's career leader in receiving yards. Houston plays Tennessee in its regular-season finale Jan.
Kubiak said tight end Owen Daniels (knee) didn't practice Tuesday and also ruled out guard Mike Brisiel (fractured fibula) against the Colts.
The [b][url=http://www.comjerseysc om.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jer seys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-W holesale/Denver-Broncos-Nfl-je rseys/]Houston Texans[/url][/b]are trying to get him healthy for the playoffs; I doubt he'll play in week 17, so I think he's safe to drop in all leagues. I like Kevin Walter more than Jacoby Jones, but even he is a deep WR3, even against the Colts. Daniels would have a nice matchup, but I also think the Texans will play it safe with him as well in a game that they should be able to win without him. That means Joel Dreessen could see some more chances. He's not a target monster, but he has scored in three of the past four games.
[b][i]Jackson hopes to return to Eagles[/i][/b]
DeSean Jackson indicated on Saturday that he hopes to return with the Eagles next season.
"Hopefully, I will be here," Jackson said.''Itís out of my control. I donít know (whatís going to happen). But I definitely want to be back." Jackson's status with the team remains unclear after being suspended for missing a mandatory team meeting earlier this season, and allowing his contract situation to become public. The two sides are reportedly ''not close'' on agreeing in value. However, if the Eagles were to apply the franchise tag, it would guarantee him $9.5 million in 2012 on a one-year deal.
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson had five receptions for 90 yards in Week 16 against the [b][url=http://www.comjerseysc om.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jer seys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-W holesale/Dallas-cowboys-Nfl-je rseys/]Dallas Cowboys[/url][/b], and he also carried twice for 27 yards. Jackson's 90 receiving yards were his most since Week 4 when he posted a season-best 171 yards against the[url=http://www.comjerseysc om.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jer seys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-W holesale/San-Francisco-49ers-N fl-Jerseys/][b]San Francisco 49ers[/b][/url].
Jackson's averages of 62.5 receiving yards a game and 16.2 yards per catch are down from last year's marks of 75.4 and 22.5, and the regression does nothing to support his case for the big money he thinks he deserves in free agency.
The [b][url=http://www.comjerseysc om.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jer seys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-W holesale/Philadelphia-Eagles-N fl-Jerseys/]Philadelphia Eagles[/url][/b] could renegotiate with him, use the franchise tag - to keep him or to use as leverage for a trade - or let him walk. The decision will come in the months after next Sunday's season-ending game in Philadelphia.
