Gutsy 33-30 OT Win Lifts Browns to 5-3

Lewis scores

Browns fans get ready – the rematch is next.  For the Browns, they trailed at one point Sunday by 15, but as has been the case the last few weeks, this team was not about to let themselves get down, and they rallied for a gutsy 33-30 great overtime win at Browns Stadium over the Seattle Seahawks.  The team now looks ahead to the first-place Steelers and a rematch of what was a downer on opening day when they lost to the Steelers 34-7 at home.  Today was about Derek Anderson and Kellen Winslow, who combined for 11 catches for 125 yards.  While he didn’t score, he was the reason the Browns were able to get back in the game down 21-6.

Anderson ended the day with 364 yards on 29-of-48 passing and one interception.  He led the Browns for four scores in five possessions stretching over the second half and overtime.  The overtime drive was highlighted by a simple screen from Anderson to back Jamal Lewis, who rumbled 34 yards from the Browns 45 to the Seattle 21.  This came after the Seahawks went for it on 4th-and-inches and back Maurice Morris was stuffed for no gain.  The Browns needed just six plays to allow kicker Phil Dawson to hit a chip shot 25-yard field goal for the win.

Winslow was very emotional after the game for the now 5-3 Browns.  “It’s about how bad do you want it,” said Winslow. “I’m just so proud of us because we fought as a team. We deserve this.”  Braylon Edwards, who should have an invite to Hawaii before the year is over, caught 5 passes for 67 yards.  Lewis rushed for four touchdowns.

Next up – the first-place showdown with the Steelers.  Let the trash talking begin.
