Redskins keep Browns defense off balance

Jason Miller

Cleveland had trouble stopping the Washington Redskins on Sunday, especially in the second half.

The Washington Redskins didn't have quarterback Robert Griffin III on Sunday, but that didn't stop them from scoring 38 points en route to a win over the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland defensive back Joe Haden said the Redskins kept them guessing throughout the game.

"When we thought it was going to be a run, it was a pass," Haden said. "When we thought it was a pass, they ran. You felt off-balanced. You didn’t really know what they were doing."

Washington began slowly--three of its first four drives ended with a punt, and the other ended on a Kirk Cousins interception. But the Redskins began to find some rhythm after that, and Cousins orchestrated four touchdown drives in the second half as the team overcame a 14-10 halftime deficit.

Washington finished the game with 430 yards of total offense, and Cousins finished with 329 passing yards. The Redskins converted seven of 15 third downs.
