Quarterback Seneca Wallace became the 15th different quarterback to start for the Browns since 1999. Wallace connected with wide receiver Joshua Cribbs on a 65-yard touchdown in the second quarter. The pass was the longest for Wallace since 2008 when he found wide receiver Koren Robinson for a 90-yard score on November 2, while with the Seattle Seahawks.
Wide receiver Joshua Cribbs set a career-high with 74 receiving yards on three receptions. Cribbs hauled in a career-long 65 yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, the third receiving score of his career. He has recorded a receiving touchdown in each of the last three seasons.
The Browns completed a 10-play 98-yard scoring drive, which was capped off by a 1-yard touchdown plunge by running back Peyton Hillis. The score was the second rushing touchdown of the season for Hillis and eighth of his career.

Tight end Benjamin Watson recorded four receptions for 62 yards, including a 44-yard catch in the first quarter. The 44-yard catch marked the longest reception of Watson’s career, surpassing his previous career-long of 40 yards set at Minnesota on October 30, 2006 when he was with the New England Patriots.
Linebacker Marcus Benard registered a sack and now has 6.0 in his career. Benard has recorded at least a half-sack in five of his eight career games.
