It wasn’t the most magnificent work of art, but it was a Cleveland Browns win. Trent Richardson’s first quarter touchdown held up as the Browns defense was able to hold Phillip Rivers and company in check. The Browns stopped the Chargers from getting into field goal range on the final drive to eek out a 7-6 win. Richardson ran for 122 yards and the lone score, while both quarterbacks struggled to complete passes downfield and combined for just 284 passing yards. The Browns are now 2-6 and face Baltimore at home next weekend.
