Found November 21, 2011 on Fox Sports:
The Browns may not be one of the elite teams in the NFL. They are certainly one of the most dramatic. Cleveland's 14-10 win on Sunday came down to the final snap and wasn't decided until a pass by the Jaguars fell incomplete in the Browns' end zone. As the last seconds unfolded, several players couldn't watch while others closed their eyes and prayed. First-year coach Pat Shurmur said he prayed before the game and the ''Hail Mary's held up.'' It was the second straight week the Browns have gone down to the wire, and it was the team's 48th game decided by four points or less since 2002 - the last time Cleveland made the playoffs. Offensive tackle Tony Pashos said he ''likes suspense, but not this much.''
