On their third try, the Browns finally figured out how to win in overtime.
Rookie Greg Joseph’s 37-yard field goal — a knuckleball that barely cleared the crossbar — with 2 seconds left in OT gave Cleveland a 12-9 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
After rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield drove the Browns (2-2-1) into position, Joseph, who was signed after Week 2 following Zane Gonzalez’s release, somehow lined his kick through the uprights to give Cleveland its first AFC North win in 19 tries.
“I think we like the dramatic,” said Browns coach Hue Jackson, who got his first win inside the division.
As Browns fans celebrated just the team’s second win in two seasons, Joseph, who missed an extra point in the first half, was mobbed by his teammates following Cleveland’s third extra-period game in five weeks.
