Kicker Phil Dawson continues to be the Browns’ only scoring option. He connected on a 27-yard field goal with a minute left in the third quarter to give the Browns a 12-10 lead.
The scoring drive was highlighted by a 32-yard run by Chris Ogbonnaya and a 22-yard, one-handed catch by Benjamin Watson. On the game, Browns quarterback Colt McCoy is 18-of-25 passing for 202 yards.
The Rams controlled the ball for much of the start of the third quarter with running back Steven Jackson. After three quarters, Jackson has 20 carries for 98 yards.
The Rams were driving down the field early in the quarter, but Browns linebacker Chris Gocong forced and recovered a Jackson fumble. Gocong is having a nice day, breaking up a pass earlier in the game.
The injuries continue to pile up for the Rams. Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui injured his leg on a Joe Haden tackle on the last play of the quarter. The Rams, who have the ball going into the fourth quarter, have two turnovers on the game.
