Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Cleveland Browns fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.

After dominating the Cardinals and now coming from behind on the road to stun the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 33-31, fans have to be feeling pretty confident.

Not only did Deshaun Watson have his best second half with the Browns to contribute to the rally, but the defense made some huge plays as well.

This week, we’re also asking about the punt return position. James Proche performed well two weeks ago against Arizona, and all was going well until his fumble against Ravens nearly prevented the comeback.

Our other question centers around who you think will win between Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

Browns Film Breakdown: How Cleveland Stunned the Ravens

Relive the Browns historic comeback win over the Ravens on Sunday and the epic game-winning drive that earned Cleveland the victory

Prior to Sunday the Browns were 0-59-1 in games against their division opponents where they trailed by 14-plus points.

With one Dustin Hopkins 40-yard field goal, Cleveland made history in a 33-31 win over Baltimore, accomplishing that feat for the first time in franchise history.

In our latest edition of Brownie Breakdowns, Anthony Moeglin and Spencer German study the tape from Browns, Ravens to explore how Cleveland pulled off the improbable victory.

The first half featured a comedy of errors, including Deshaun Watson’s pick-six to Kyle Hamilton on the second play from scrimmage. Shortly after that the Browns were already facing a 14-point deficit just under five minutes into the game.

What stands out after the rough start is that the Watson and the offense started to press a little bit and often looked to use deep shots to attempt to get it all back at once. That seemed to contribute to Watson’s one-for-nine start to the game.

That changed as the game wore on as the offense continued to run the football and took what the defense was giving the.

A well balanced 17-play, 75-yard drive on their first possession of the second half set a tone for the late stages of the game, where Cleveland was the more physical and composed team. Not often that gets said about the Cleveland Browns.

Of course, the fourth quarter brought plenty of memorable moments: the Obo Okoronkwo aided, Greg Newsome pick-six that brought the Browns within one point of the Ravens.

A tough run from Watson on the game winning drive, the 12-yard run we’re calling the “Cleveland Caravan” to get into field goal range for Hopkins’ game winner.
