(Sports Network) - Ray Rice and Dawan Landry each scored a touchdown for the Ravens in the first three minutes of the second half, and Baltimore shut out the hapless Browns, 16-0.
Rice finished with 20 carries for 89 yards for the Ravens (5-4), who desperately needed the win after losing four of their last five games. Landry returned an interception 48 yards for a touchdown, and Joe Flacco completed 13-of-18 passes for 155 yards in the win.
Derrick Mason had three catches for 78 yards, as Baltimore posted its first shutout since November 26, 2006 against the Steelers. It was also the first Monday Night Football win for the Ravens since December 19, 2005 against Green Bay after losing their last five such games.
Brady Quinn, given the starting nod over Derek Anderson, threw for only 99 yards and was picked off twice on 13-of-31 throws for Cleveland (1-8), which did not advance past the Ravens' 45-yard line the entire game.
Jamal Lewis ran for 36 yards on 10 carries, and Mohamed Massaquoi and Mike Furrey each had 30 yards receiving on one and six catches, respectively, for Cleveland, which had only 160 total yards in the game.
The Browns, who have only 78 points this season -- lowest in the NFL -- have scored six or fewer points in six of their nine games. They have only five offensive touchdowns in their last 15 games, which is the fewest total in that stretch of time since the 1933-34 Cincinnati Reds.
