Browns Impress In Key Stats Against Seahawks Despite Ugly Game

The game between the Cleveland Browns and the Seattle Seahawks was just horrifyingly bad. In the future, showing the game will be considered a war crime and clinics opened specifically for those who were forced to watch the game and reveal sensitive information under duress. Seriously though, there's a lot about the game that was bad and very little that was good. In fact, as noted by Pro Football Talk, there's some interesting stats of note, specifically for the Browns:

Cleveland possessed the ball for 42:56, which is their highest time of possession in a game since at least 1976. ... (The Seahawks) had 137 total yards for the game, and averaged 2.4 yards-per-pass. That's the fewest yards the Browns have given up since 1993

That's right - the Browns had the ball for over 40 minutes and only managed to score six points, and only won the game by a field goal when they held the Seahawks to 137 yards. Looking at the numbers, the Browns really should have been able to put up bigger numbers and beat the Seahawks by a wider margin than they did. A win is a win, and that's really all that matters, but they were probably hoping for a better end result, all things considered.
