OAKLAND — Ding dong the streak is dead.  The Cleveland Browns ended a 12-game road losing streak and won back-to-back games for the first time since September of 2011 as the Browns beat Oakland 20-17 on Sunday.

The Browns sealed the victory with a 3-yard touchdown run by Trent Richardson in the fourth quarter.  The Browns 94-yard touchdown drive was set up by a Sheldon Brown interception at Cleveland’s own 6-yard line.

Carson Palmer tossed a 17-yard TD to Brandon Myers with :01 left to cut the Browns lead to 20-17, but at that point the game had already been decided.

Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon had a career day hauling in one touchdown of 44 yards and had six catches for 116 yards.  Brandon Weeden threw for 364-yards on 25 of 36, he did throw two interceptions.

Running back Trent Richardson finished the game with 72 yards on 20 carries and the late touchdown which sealed the Browns victory.

The Browns have now won 4 of their last 7 games and improve to 4-8.  They return home to Cleveland Browns Stadium next Sunday to face the Kansas City Chiefs who beat Carolina.

Notes:

Phil Dawson missed a 28-yard field goal attempt in the third quarter when an Oakland defender deflected the kick. It snapped Dawson’s franchise-record streak of 29 made in a row.
