Finally, a Browns wide receiver got separation on a deep route as Colt McCoy completed a 52-yard strike to rookie Greg Little late in the second quarter. The pass set up an eventual 43-yard field goal for Phil Dawson. With the completion to Little, McCoy is having arguably his best half of the season.
On the previous drive the Rams connected on a 29-yard field goal by Josh Brown.
The Browns were able to narrow the lead to 7-6 on a drive that was started by a Scott Fujita interception. Phil Dawson connected on his second field goal of the day, this one for 32 yards. The drive, which started a midfield, at least had some excitement to it. The Browns successfully ran a trick play with Colt McCoy lining up at wide receiver, receiving a pitch and completing a pass to backup quarterback Seneca Wallace.
McCoy is 13-of-19 passing through two quarters for 152 yards. The Browns are behind largely due to their inability to run the ball. Starter Chris Ogbonnaya has 32 yards on nine carries. Little leads the Browns in receiving with four catches for 67 yards.
For the Rams, Sam Bradford has completed 8-of-15 passes for 96 yards a touchdown and an interception.
The Rams will receive the ball to start the third quarter.
