The Browns Defense has been the most effective scoring unit of Sunday’s game between Cleveland and Philadelphia.
Linebacker Sione Takitaki returned an interception for a touchdown in the first half and the defense posted more points in the third quarter. A Jamie Gillan punt forced the Eagles to start their drive on their 2-yard-line and Olivier Vernon sacked Carson Wentz in the end zone for a safety on third down.
The score put the Browns up 12-7.
It was the third sack of the day for Vernon, who also got Wentz on third down to end the first Eagles possession of the half. That led to a punt, but a strip sack by Fletcher Cox set the Eagles up to tie the game on a touchdown catch by tight end Richard Rodgers. That created a tie, but it was short-lived and the Browns now have a chance to build an even bigger lead.
