Joe Flacco finds Anquan Boldin for three scores to push Ravens over Browns
BALTIMORE -- On an afternoon in which the esteemed Baltimore defense was rather ordinary, Joe Flacco and his retooled receiving corps carried the Ravens to a surprisingly difficult victory.Flacco threw three touchdown passes to Anquan Boldin, and the Ravens survived an outstanding performance by Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis in a 24-17 win Sunday.
• Anquan Boldin caught three TDs for the second time in his career. He was one shy of Marcus Robinson's single-game Ravens record set in 2003.
• The Browns have had a fourth-quarter lead in all three games this season, but are 0-3 for the third straight season and the fourth time in five years.
• Joe Flacco threw for 262 yards and three TDs, his third career game with at least three TD passes.
• Peyton Hillis had 180 yards from scrimmage and his 144 rushing yards set a career high.
• The Ravens are 3-0 in home openers under coach Jim Harbaugh.
