Browns-Raiders Post Game Notes


  • Running back Jerome Harrison set a Browns record with 39 rushing attempts, as he ran for a game-high 148 yards and one touchdown. He passed Lee Suggs who attempted 38 carries at Miami on December 26, 2004. Harrison’s 39 attempts are the most in the NFL in 2009.
  • With 148 rushing yards, Harrison became the first Browns player to follow a 200-yard rushing performance with a 100-yard performance. Harrison’s 286 rushing yards at Kansas City (12/20) marked the eighth time that a Browns running back amassed the 200-yard plateau. Over the last two contests, Harrison has totaled 434 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He became the first Browns player to record back-to-back 100-yard rushing games since Jamal Lewis rushed for 118 yards at the N.Y. Jets on December 9, 2007 and for 163 yards against the Bills on December 16.
  • Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi hauled in his third receiving touchdown of the season, with a 19-yard score in the second quarter.  Massaquoi has a team-high 610 receiving yards on the season.
  • Linebacker David Bowens recorded the Browns’ first interception in five games and the second of his career as he picked off Raiders quarterback Charlie Frye on the second play of the game. Bowens’ other interception came in 2008, when he snared a Shaun Hill pass on December 7 against San Francisco. It marked the first interception by a Browns linebacker since D’Qwell Jackson registered two at Tennessee on December 7, 2008. Bowens also was credited with 0.5 sack and has 5.5 on the season and 38 in his career.
  • The Browns recorded a season-high three interceptions as defensive back Brandon McDonald registered his first interception of the season and eight of his career. Defensive back Eric Wright recorded his third interception of the season and seventh of his career. It was the first time the Browns recorded three interceptions in a contest since December 15, 2008 at Philadelphia.
  • With four sacks on the day, the Browns have recorded 37 on the season after totaling 17 in 2008. The 37 sacks are the most since the team totaled 43 in 2001. The Browns have recorded 10 multi-sack games this season, the most since the club totaled 11 in 2001.
  • Linebacker Matt Roth recorded 1.5 sacks and has registered at least 0.5 sack in four of his five games since joining Cleveland on November 25. He has 4.0 sacks on the season and 16.5 in his career.
  • Defensive back Mike Adams registered his first sack of the season and third of his career. Rookie linebacker Marcus Benard turned in his third career sack.
  • Wide receiver Mike Furrey started on defense at safety and recorded five tackles. It was his first start on the defensive side of the ball since January 1, 2006 at Dallas, as a member of the St. Louis Rams. Furrey has 12 career starts on defense and 28 on offense, with two on offense and one on defense this season.
  • With kicker Phil Dawson’s 33-yard third quarter field goal, the Browns have scored 27 points on their first possession of the second half this season.
  • Cleveland has won three consecutive games for the first time since 2007 when they registered a 41-31 win against Miami on October 14, followed by a 27-20 victory at St. Louis on October 28 and a 33-30 overtime triumph against Seattle on November 4.
  • The Browns held Oakland to 23.1 percent (3-of-13) on third downs, the Browns’ second lowest output of the season, trailing only the 21.4 percent (3-of-14) against Pittsburgh (12/10). Over the last three games, Browns’ opponents have converted just 25% of their third downs (10-of-40).
  • With a 30:22-29:38 advantage today, the Browns have led in time of possession the last two games, three of the last four and four of the last six contests.
  • Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski’s 61-yard field goal at the end of the first half was the longest field goal ever made in a Browns game. Cleveland’s longest field goal is 60 yards by Steve Cox on October 21, 1984, while their opponent’s previous best was a 56-yard field goal by Wade Richey of the Baltimore Ravens on September 14, 2003.

    Some serious re-assessment has to be done, I should think. Veikune is totally absent from the stats; according to the official stats — Alex Mack has more tackles.e. How is it that Harrison could not make it on the field earlier this year — when we were watching Lewis struggle mightily for yardage? Evan Moore has more catches than Robiskie — and he just arrived with the team in mid-season? Second round picks should be on the field contributing. If they are not, then someone has failed somewhere. Considering the QB debacle earlier this season, I gotta believe that the fault lies in the player personnel area. This is where Holmgren has to hire an Ozzie-type GM — because his history is so good compared to either Mangini or Hilmgren.

    This game was just as much given away by the Raiders as it was won by t he Browns. They repeatedly shot themselves in the foot. I realize good teams have to take advantage of that, but realiztically things could have been very different.

    Harrison, Harrison and Harrison some more. I think part of the reason his yards per carry average was not as high is because DA was at QB. OMG does DA slow the game down or what? It seems he’s moving in slow mo compared to Quinn. Harrison doesn’t get the ball as quick from DA as he does from BQ. That extra split second makes a difference.
    Defense and the O line played a good game too. The only problem that really stuck out was DA’s play. He makes multi millions and can’t complete 50% of his passes. His entire career is barely 50%. He’s slow, he’s inaccurate with his throws, he gets flustered easily and it just pisses me off to see him with his little cocky grin when he throws an interception or a bad pass. I really doubt that we will get anything of any value for him in a trade so I would offer him a settlement and cut him loose.
    Quinn might be worth another chance, but his injuries and his completing barely 50% of his passes and not being able to throw over 20 yards scares me. If we can package a deal with DA and BQ for a good proven QB, I would jump on it. Work with Cribbs on his passing and see how he does. We all know he can run and scramble. We still have to keep him at “return master” though.
    We’ll see if Holgrem can work a miracle in Cleveland. He has the draft picks to work with. So here’s puttin my faith in ya big guy.
