Jaguars snap 9-game losing streak with win over the Browns
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Denard Robinson ran for a career-high 127 yards and a touchdown, Jacksonville’s defense came up big in the red zone and the Jaguars snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 24-6 victory against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Jacksonville (1-6) won for the first time since beating Houston on Dec. 15, 2013.
Blake Bortles connected with fellow rookie Allen Robinson for a 31-yard score and the game’s first touchdown. It was really all the Jaguars needed on a day in which coach Gus Bradley’s defense delivered time and time again.
The Browns (3-3) settled for field goals in two trips inside the 20-yard line and failed to convert on fourth-and-1 at the 24.
Cleveland, which entered the game with the league’s third-best rushing attack, was held in check. The Browns ran 30 times for 69 yards.
