Oakland Raiders lead Cleveland Browns 14-7 at half but lose QB Jason Campbell

If the Cleveland Browns can stop the run in the second half, they may have a chance to come back against the Oakland Raiders. At the half, the Browns trail 14-7. But after losing starter Jason Campbell to injury the Oakland has struggled to move the ball behind backup Kyle Boller.

It’s been an up-and-down half for Browns quarterback Colt McCoy. He’s completed seven of 16 attempts for 79 yards and the touchdown to tight end Alex Smith. McCoy has thrown into double coverage a couple times and had apparent miscommunication with his receivers at others.

After the Browns scored a touchdown tying the game 7-7 early in the second quarter, the Raiders’ Jacoby Ford quickly answered. The Clemson product took a kickoff back 101 yards to help put Oakland ahead 14-7. It was Ford’s fourth career touchdown on a return.

The Browns took advantage of a fumble by Campbell at the end of the first quarter to tie the game 7-7. The Browns’ scoring drive was punctuated by a one-yard touchdown pass from McCoy to Smith. It featured a 23-yard pass to Josh Cribbs and a 15-yard reception by Greg Little. The rookie would have scored his first career touchdown, but slipped and fell at the one-yard line.
