Cleveland Browns take 3-0 against Seattle Seahawks at half

Neither the Cleveland Browns or the Seattle Seahawks managed to move the ball much in the first half.

A 52-yard field goal by Browns kicker Phil Dawon was the lone scoring play of the game, putting the team up 3-0. A 48-yard attempt by Dawson early in the second quarter was blocked by defensive tackle Red Bryant.

Neither quarterback in this game has managed to move their team down the field. Colt McCoy is nine of 18 for 87 yards for the Browns. His counterpart Charlie Whitehurst is six of 14 for 47 yards for the Seahawks.

The Browns running game also failed to provide much yardage in the second quarter. After carrying the ball seven times for 31 yards in the first quarter, Montario Hardesty ran the ball eight more times for just 12 yards in the second. He has 43 yards rushing at the half.

Running back Chris Ogbonnaya, who was signed by the Browns this week, has gotten a majority of the team’s snaps on third down. He’s the team’s leading receiver with three catches for 40 yards.

John Greco replaced starter Shawn Lauvao at guard for the Browns. Lauvao is out with a knee injury and his return is questionable. The Seahawks lost cornerback Walter Thurmond late in the second quarter. His status for the rest of the game has not be disclosed.
