CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns beat the Philadelphia Eagles in a Sunday matchup at FirstEnergy Stadium, 22-17.
The Browns came out swinging in the first quarter with help from Sione Takitaki who intercepted Carson Wentz throw and ran 50-yards for a touchdown.
The second quarter was largely uneventful with neither team scoring. Browns lead the way heading into halftime.
The Eagles scored their first touchdown in the third quarter. The excitement was short lived when Cody Parkey scored a 46-yard field goal helping the Browns keep their lead.
In the fourth quarter, Nick Chubb had a beauty of a touch down, bringing the score to 19-10. A field goal brought the score to 22-10.
At the 2-minute warning, the Browns were able to maintain their lead. They won 22-17.
The team made the moves on Saturday, capping a rough few days as the Browns (6-3) navigated around positive tests and protocols.
While it was good to have Conklin and Parkey to play the NFC East-leading Eagles (3-5-1), the Browns didn’t have star defensive end Myles Garrett. He tested positive for the coronavirus on Friday and will miss Sunday’s game, and it’s possible he’ll sit out next week’s game at Jacksonville as well.
Garrett leads the NFL with 9 1/2 sacks and the dynamic end has made a game-changing play in each of Cleveland’s six wins.
