Browns Vs. Rams Score Update: Phil Dawson Gives Cleveland 3-0 Lead After First Quarter

On Cleveland's third possession of the game after both teams punted their first possessions, a 20 yard completion from Colt McCoy to Josh Cribbs set up the Browns offense to get into field goal range. After a handful of plays on which the Browns picked up some chunks of yards, the drive stalled out at the Rams 26 yard line and set up a Phil Dawson 44 yard field goal, which he put through the uprights. 

The Rams took the ensuing drive into Cleveland territory on 11 plays and will have a red zone opportunity from the Browns' 12 yard line when the second quarter begins (second-and-eight).

Colt McCoy was 5-of-6 for 39 yards in the first quarter. Sam Bradford was 5-of-8 for 67 yards. While the Browns running game has been non-existent (Chris Ogbonnaya has just 13 yards on five carries), Rams running back Steven Jackson has 30 yards on six carries.
