CLEVELAND (WJW) -- The Cleveland Browns (5-6) beat the Miami Dolphins (2-9) 41-24 in Sunday's game at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Both teams came into the game with something to prove, especially the Dolphins who've had a rough season. The Browns also wanted to keep the momentum going after winning their last game against the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-7.

The Browns were first to score in Sunday's game when quarterback Baker Mayfield threw a 7-yard pass to wide receiver Jarvis Landry for goal.

Then wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. scored a touchdown on a 35-yard pass from Mayfield.  This was Beckham's second touchdown of the season.

Cleveland led Miami 14-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Cleveland kicked off the second quarter with another Landry touchdown. He caught a 5-yard pass from Mayfield for score, making this the quarterback's first three passing touchdown game of the season.

Then, with a minute left to play in the first half, running back Kareem Hunt got his first touchdown as a Cleveland Brown!  Hunt rushed 6 yards for goal and then celebrated his accomplishment by jumping into the stands.  Cleveland led Miami 28-0.

Miami then put points on the board with 1 second left to play in the first half when Jason Sanders kicked a 36-yard field goal. The Browns led the Dolphins 28-3 at halftime. Game announcers say this is the Browns first 25-point halftime lead in 15 years.

The Dolphins nabbed their first touchdown of the game in the third quarter. Ryan FitZpatrick threw an 11 yard pass to Mike Gesicki. Jason Sanders made the extra point.

They quickly scored a second before the end of the third. Ryan Fitzpatrick had an 8 yard rush.

The Browns added more points to the board in the fourth quarter with help from Austin Seibert. He made a 26 yard field goal and a 40 yard field goal.

A few minutes later, Nick Cubb scored a TD with a five yard rush. Seibert once again securing the extra point.

Dolphins Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a 19 yard pass to Allen Hurns for one final TD.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to win. The Browns came out victorious 41-24.

Sunday's match up has been largely overshadowed by what happened last week when the Browns and Steelers got into a melee at the end of the game.  It drew an indefinite suspension from the league on Browns DE Myles Garrett.

Earlier this week the NFL decided to uphold Garrett's suspension. He will be suspended without pay for the remainder of the season.

Garrett hit Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph over the head with the quarterback's helmet and Garrett pulled it off after the play.

The NFL fined Rudolph $50,000 for his role in the fight.

Kitchens chose not to elaborate on the situation during the press conference this week.

He said their focus was on Miami.

"You can’t do anything about last week and you can’t do anything about next week. You can only do something about today, and that is where want to keep our focus," he said.
