CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland Browns lost to the Oakland Raiders at FirstEnergy Stadium today, falling to 1-2 on the season.
The Raiders currently have the worst defense in the NFL.
But that wasn’t much help for the Browns.
The Browns couldn’t get on the board until the second half and when they did, they settled for a field goal.
Finally, in the late third quarter, they were able to score and close to lead to 20-10, but the Raiders didn’t wait long to score once again. The Browns then scored another field goal.
Following a Raiders touchdown, the Browns scored once again and closed the gap to 27-20 with several minutes in the fourth quarter.
The Browns rallied down the field with less than two minutes left, but they could not get it done as Charles Woodson picked off McCown with just a few seconds left.
McCown took over for Johnny Manziel who started last week and led the Browns to victory over the Titans by throwing two touchdown passes to Travis Benjamin.
But the Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said he was not worried about the pressure McCown faces with Manziel waiting in the wings.
“He’s one of the most mentally tough people I’ve met in my entire life,” DeFilippo said of McCown.
