The Cleveland Browns fell to the Washington Redskins yesterday, 38-21. The Browns took the early lead following a T.J. Ward interception when Trent Richardson powered his way in from six yards out. However, Kirk Cousins found Leonard Hankerson for a 54-yard touchdown heave and the Skins nailed a 44-yard field goal in the second quarter to take the lead. Cleveland answered late in the first half to take the lead back on a Trent Richardson one-yard touchdown plunge. But, Washington would score 21 unanswered points in the second half to pull away behind touchdown runs from Alfred Morris and Evan Royster. Cleveland falls to 5-9 and will head to Denver on Sunday at 4.
