Cleveland Browns fall to Seattle Seahawks, 30-13
SEATTLE – The Seattle Seahawks attempted to continue their surge toward a playoff berth as they seek their fifth consecutive victory when they hosted the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Seahawks came out on top with the 30-13.
The Browns got on the board first, scoring a touchdown within the first 5 minutes of the game. The Seahawks answered just before the end of the quarter, tying the score at 7-7.
The Seahawks scored once again, leading the Browns 14-7 for awhile. The Browns were able to get a Travis Coons field goal a few minutes before halftime though to close the gap to 14-10.
The Seahawks kicked a field goal with less than a minute left in the half, increasing their lead to 17-10. The Browns couldn’t make it down field again before halftime. The Seahawks scored another field goal as the clock hit zero because of a Browns penalty, giving them the 20-10 lead.
A field goal for the Browns came during the third, but the Seahawks weren’t slowing down. They scored a touchdown and another field goal to take a 30-13 lead.
The two-time defending NFC champions have turned things around and actually can clinch another trip to the postseason with a win or tie and help elsewhere.
Cleveland halted its seven-game losing streak last week as it posted a 24-10 home triumph over San Francisco last week.
Johnny Manziel returned as the Browns’ starting quarterback after a two-game benching and threw for 270 yards and a touchdown while the club gained a season-high 230 yards on the ground. Cleveland has lost five of its first six road games, with its lone victory coming in overtime at Baltimore in Week 5.
