Justin Tucker kicked a 32-yard field as time expired, giving the Baltimore Ravens a 23-21 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Tucker's boot capped another challenging week for the Ravens (2-1), who continue to be dogged by questions surrounding running back Ray Rice's domestic violence suspension.

Joe Flacco set up Tucker's game-winner with a 32-yard pass to Steve Smith with 1:28 left. The Ravens then ran the clock down before bringing in Tucker, who split the uprights and sent the Browns (1-2) to another tough loss. Both of Cleveland's losses have come on last-play field goals.

Flacco finished 19 of 31 for 217 yards with one touchdown.

Cleveland's Brian Hoyer completed 19 of 25 passes for 290 yards. The Browns failed to capitalize on several chances to put the Ravens away in the second half. Cleveland missed a field goal and had one blocked.
