Found December 09, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
On the first play of the 2nd quarter, Browns rookie receiver Travis Benjamin returned Dustin Colquitt’s punt a franchise record long 93 yards for a touchdown. Josh Cribbs was initially back deep to return the punt, but the Browns shifted Cribbs up to the line to go for the block.  While Cribbs shifted up, Benjamin shifted back from his spot out wide over the gunner and into position to field the punt. Benjamin broke Eric Metcalf’s previous record of 92 yards set back in 1994.
