The Browns had sole possession of first place in the AFC North for less than 72 hours. Cincinnati and Baltimore both won their games on Sunday to get to 3-2 on the season.
Cincinnati's victory was the most surprising. The Bengals knocked off previously unbeaten New England 13-6. Tom Brady's streak of 51 games with a touchdown pass was snapped, it was the second longest streak in NFL history. BenJarvus Green-Ellis scored the game's only touchdown on a 4th and goal 1-yard plunge into the end zone in the fourth quarter.
Baltimore held off Miami 26-23. Calib Sturgis missed a 57 yard field goal with less than a minute remaining that would have tied the game. Justin Tucker gave the Ravens the lead with a 44 yard field goal with 1:42 left in the game to put them up for good. Ray Rice ran for two touchdowns in the victory.
The Browns will look to stay in first place in Week 6 when they host Detroit (3-2).
