Browns hold on for first victory of the season

Hue Jackson, who grew teary-eyed earlier this season at the thought of going 0-16, gave an emotional speech following the Browns' first win on Saturday. Antonio Gates led all receivers with 8 receptions for 94 yards and 1 touchdown. Isaiah Crowell dominated the ground game with 16 carries for 54 yards and 2 touchdowns.

A Josh Lambo field goal put the Chargers up 10-7, but the Browns scored 10 unanswered points in the second quarter to take a 17-10 lead into the half. Bosa has two sacks, three tackles for loss, and three big hits on Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III today. The Chargers had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds but missed another field goal attempt. If the Browns end up winning at least one game, they could find themselves in a tiebreaker with the 49ers. But the Chargers finally found some offensive rhythm and responded with an 11-play, 75-yard drive, Rivers connecting with Tyrell Williams from the 1. The Chargers were penalized nine times for 92 yards.

San Diego enters play at 5-9 on the season and very much out of the AFC playoff picture. Heading into Sunday, the Browns have a.555 strength of schedule, while the 49ers sit at.509.
