CLEVELAND (AP) – Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes to wide receiver Mike Wallace and the Baltimore Ravens rallied from a 20-point deficit and beat the Cleveland Browns 25-20 on Sunday.

Justin Tucker kicked three field goals – the last with 2:56 left – and the Ravens (2-0), who trailed 20-0 in the first quarter, withstood Cleveland’s final drive to improve to 15-2 against the Browns under coach John Harbaugh.

Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley intercepted Browns quarterback Josh McCown at the goal line with 13 seconds left to seal the win.

Baltimore was a point from trailing by three touchdowns in the opening quarter before blocking an extra point and returning it for two points and igniting the comeback.

McCown stayed in the game despite an injured left shoulder for the Browns (0-2), who were hurt by a missed field goal and three costly penalties in the fourth quarter.

McCown completed a 20-yard pass in the final minute Terrelle Pryor to the Baltimore 10, but the play was nullified because the wide receiver was called for taunting when he flipped the ball toward Ravens defensive back Lardarius Webb.

McCown, filling in for Robert Griffin III who broke a shoulder bone in last week’s opener, threw a pair of TD passes to rookie Corey Coleman and Isaiah Crowell had an 85-yard touchdown run for the Browns.

Cleveland scored three touchdowns in the first quarter – two in a span of 2:13 – to stun the Ravens, but Flacco brought his team back and finished 25 of 45 for 302 yards.

McCown briefly went to the locker room in the first quarter with an injured left shoulder, but returned and went 20 of 33 for 260 yards.
