Catching a short pass from coach Pat Shurmur, new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam tucked away the game ball, a reward for his first win.
Haslam beamed and everyone in Cleveland's locker room, including legendary running back Jim Brown, basked in the glow of victory.
On a gray, stormy Sunday, this was a bright new beginning. For a change, this was a step forward for the Browns.
Rookie Trent Richardson rushed for a season-high 122 yards and a touchdown, Cleveland's defense kept San Diego out of the end zone and the Browns benefited from a big drop in a 7-6 win, Haslam's first since buying the club for $1.05 billion.
''It feels good,'' Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson said of satisfying Haslam. ''You always want to put a smile on his face.''
Richardson did just that with a performance that even had the tough-to-please Brown swelling with pride. When the Browns drafted Richardson with the No. 3 overall pick in April's draft, Brown had ...

CLEVELAND -- The Browns drafted Trent Richardson to have days like these, when he is the offense, and it's still enough for Cleveland to cash in a victory. Richardson had his best rushing game of the season Sunday and scored the only touchdown of the game to carry the Browns past the Chargers, 7-6, on a dreary rain-soaked afternoon. The reeling Chargers, 3-4, have lost three...
Cleveland Browns runningback Trent Richardson has been having a stellar rookie year so far, and he has had a few magical touchdown runs already this year. This one was huge as it was the only touchdown scored in their game with the San Diego Chargers, and it was a true team effort, with his offensive lineman keeping him upright and helping him get to the end zone.Via: Big Lead Sports
Have you ever seen a NFL offensive lineman assist his own running back on a touchdown run?
Well, that's what happened today in the game between the San Diego Chargers and the Cleveland Browns.
Watch as Browns running back Trent Richardson scores on this 26-yard touchdown run and keep an eye on the assist from offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao:

Trent Richardson and several members of the Cleveland Browns spent some time playing video games with troops in person and in Afghanistan this morning. Pictured above is Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson and LB Craig Robertson.
Pretty cool of them to take the time and hang out with troops if you ask me.
The Browns won in decidedly ugly fashion in decidedly ugly conditions on Sunday, but that didn’t seem to bother Pat Shurmur or Brandon Weeden in their post-game press conferences. Apparently it didn’t bother new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam either, as Daryl Ruiter reports. “It was a great win. We played hard, made a great play [...]

As Trent Richardson escaped the warm embrace of offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao en route to a 26-yard touchdown run, the running back ran straight through eastern end zone, heading straight to the Dawg Pound to acknowledge the fans amidst a chorus of cheers from those who braved the elements on that very day. The guitar riff from Queen’s ”We Will Rock You” blared, fans slapped...
Will the fourth and 1 furor that Pat Shurmur started ever die?
Pat McManamon: Sure. As soon as the next perplexing Browns play, call or event. This team has made drama an art form. Everyone last season thought Peyton Hillis was to blame, but it's continued this season. From strange play calls against the Eagles to that third-and-1 pass against the Giants to the fourth-and-1 pass...
**** everything about this recap. You want me to break down Trent Richardson’s touchdown? He ran to the right, bam, touchdown. Final score was 7-6. The touchdown came in the first quarter. The two Novak field goals came in the second and third quarters. ******* barn burner of a game, let me tell you. Games like this should be considered torture. Like if I went to Guantanamo Bay...
