Dawson's Leg Powers Browns To Victory

(Sports Network) – Phil Dawson made a pair of field goals with less than two minutes left in the game, as the Cleveland Browns rallied past the Green Bay Packers, 27-24, in the preseason lid-lifter for each club.

Dawson made a 58-yard field goal with about 1 1/2 minutes remaining and a 46- yarder as time expired to give Cleveland the victory.

The Browns, who are trying to rebound from a 5-11 record in 2009, upgraded at quarterback in the offseason by signing Jake Delhomme, who made both Pro Bowl and Super Bowl appearances during a seven-year run as starting quarterback of the Carolina Panthers. Delhomme impressed in his Browns debut, completing 6- of-7 passes for 66 yards.

Seneca Wallace was brought in as a serviceable backup after spending seven years in Seattle. He connected on 4-of-8 passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns. Colt McCoy, who was selected in the third round of the draft, threw two interceptions before leaving with a right hand injury.

Jerome Harrison rushed for a TD, while Brian Robiskie and Benjamin Watson each caught a touchdown pass.
