Mike Preston writes a column for the Baltimore Sun.

Every Monday morning Mike grades the Ravens performance, here are Mike’s grades for the 24-18 loss to Cleveland.

Joe Flacco got a D, Flacco never got into a rhythm and was off on a lot of his throws against the Browns.

Mike gave the running backs a F. Ray Rice had just 17 yards on 11 carries, pathetic was the only way to describe it.

The Wide Receivers got a C. It’s crazy to Mike that Torrey isn’t getting the touches that he should, although Marlon Brown had a decent showing with 2 TDs.

The Offensive line received a C. They opened up no running lanes and had Joe running for his life all game.

Mike gave the D-Line a B. Cleveland only rushed for 73 yards on 28 carries.

Linebackers got a C. Dumervil was outplayed by former Raven Paul Kruger, and they had some trouble covering the Cleveland running backs.

The Cornerbacks got a D. Jason Campbell threw for 260 and 3 touchdowns, enough said.

Mike gave the special teams a C-. Justin Tucker did drill a 51 yard FG, but Tandon Doss’ muffed punt was a huge momentum changer.

The Coaches got an F. Two weeks to prepare for the Cleveland Browns and thats what they came up with, unacceptable.
