Take a quick stroll down memory lane with PFW for a recap of the Browns' Week Nine contests each of the last five seasons:
2008: The Ravens scored 24 unanswered second-half points to rally and defeat host Cleveland 37-27. The Browns (3-5) jumped out to a 14-point third-quarter lead with a pair of passing touchdowns from QB Derek Anderson, a kickoff-return score from Joshua Cribbs and a pair of field goals by PK Phil Dawson, but the advantage wouldn't hold. Baltimore (5-3) stormed back, and OLB Terrell Suggs' 42-yard interception-return touchdown sealed the deal for the Ravens.
2007: The Browns (5-3) overcame a 21-6 first-half deficit vs. Seattle, and a 25-yard Dawson field goal gave Cleveland a 33-30 victory in overtime. Jamal Lewis was held to 37 yards on 20 carries, but he scored four times, three of which came during the Browns' second-half rally. Seattle (4-4) had sent the game to OT with a 22-yard field goal at the end of regulation.
2006: The Browns (2-6) had no answer for Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson in a 32-25 loss at San Diego. Cleveland was able to hang around until the end, twice pulling within a score of the lead in the fourth quarter. A 35-yard Dawson field goal brought the Browns within six with 5:29 left, but a Tomlinson touchdown put San Diego (6-2) back up by two scores. Cleveland struck again with a four-yard pass from QB Charlie Frye to WR Braylon Edwards with 1:11 left, but that's as close as the Browns would come.
2005: RB Reuben Droughns led the way in the Browns' 20-14 win over the Titans (3-5), rushing for 116 yards on 20 carries. RB Jason Wright scored the lone TD for Cleveland (2-7), a six-yard scamper to give the Browns a 17-7 advantage in the third quarter. WR Dennis Northcutt got the scoring started with a 58-yard touchdown grab from QB Trent Dilfer in the first quarter.
