Donovan Peoples-Jones scored the game’s only touchdown as the Cleveland Browns beat the Baltimore Ravens 13-3 on Saturday to stay alive in the AFC playoff race.

Game history

In Deshaun Watson’s home debut for the Browns (6-8), his scoring shot against People-Jones came with two minutes and 10 seconds left in the third quarter to give Cleveland a 13-3 lead.

Watson, who was banned for 11 games for alleged sexual misconduct, finished 18 of 28 for 161 yards in wintry conditions, adding 22 more on the ground.

Browns rookie Cade York scored two field goals but missed two more, while Baltimore All-Pro Justin Tucker – the league’s most accurate kicker – had a rare night off, missing with a 48-yarder to end the first half, then having another blocked attempt in the second.

Tyler Huntley, who was only cleared of concussion protocol a few days ago, started again in place of Lamar Jackson (knee), who missed a second straight. But Huntley couldn’t get Baltimore started, going 17 of 30 for just 138 yards.

Huntley made a critical error in the third quarter, when he was intercepted at the Cleveland nine-yard line by Denzel Ward – with the Ravens trailing just 6-3 at that point.

Watson then headed a 91-yard drive, delivering his TD strike to Peoples-Jones, which proved enough to wrap up a crucial victory.
