Cleveland Browns

Third quarter vs. the Raiders ...

By Pat McManamon Published: September 23, 2007

Oakland 23, Cleveland 17

First -- Josh McCown has a 109 rating the first half and there are cheers when he is replaced.
Second -- A fumble by Mike Williams gives the Browns the ball and they capitalize with a touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards. Anderson has thrown some poor passes, but that was a good one -- helped by Edwards' two moves that beat Oakland's fine corner, Nnamdi Asomugha.
Third -- Joshua Cribbs' kickoff return changed the entire nature and tone of the game. At this point, the Browns lead 17-16 and the crowd is out of the game.
Fourth -- The Raiders come back, though, with an 80-yard drive that was old-fashioned football. Thirteen runs that used 9:06 of time. That was smashmouth football.
