The Baltimore Ravens scored more than 30 points for the third straight week to remain undefeated with a 34-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

Few expected the Browns to win the game, but the Ravens took the visitors out of contention from the very beginning.

After a pass interception by Domonique Foxworth on the first drive of the game, the Ravens went 31 yards in six plays to take the early lead.

They then kicked field goals in their next two possessions and then drove 80 yards in eight plays in their final possession of the half to take a 20-0 halftime lead.

Willis McGahee, who has scored six touchdowns in three games so far this season, netted both first half touchdowns. He carried the ball only seven times against the Browns, but rushed for 67 yards.

After having to punt on their first drive of the second half, the Ravens moved 53 yards on just four plays in their second drive to take a 27-0 lead. McGahee had a 34-yard run to spark the drive and Ray Rice took the ball the final nine yards for the touchdown.

With Derek Anderson, who took over in the second half from Brady Quinn, leading the way, the Browns drove 66 yards in 13 plays late in the third period, but settled for a field goal to make the score 27-3.

Joe Flacco passed for a career-high 342 yards against the Browns.

Joe Flacco punctuated the domination with a 72-yard touchdown toss to Derrick Mason midway through the final period to account for the final margin.

Baltimore out-gained the Browns 479 to 186. Flacco continued his early hot streak as he connected on 25 of 35 passes for a career-high 342 yards and a touchdown. In three games this season, Flacco has already passed for 839 yards and five touchdowns.

The Ravens will get a major test on October 4 when they play at New England in an early season game that could be a playoff preview.
