It was fitting that an evenly played game was decided on the final play.
The Jaguars had two yards and two plays to score a go-ahead touchdown. Both times, the Jaguars decided not to get the ball into the hands of star running back Maurice Jones-Drew. Because of that and pass coverage by linebacker D’Qwell Jackson the Browns held on to beat the Jaguars 14-10.
On the previous drive, Browns kicker Phil Dawson missed a 38-yard field goal that would have put the Browns up 17-10. But it was a field goal that wasn’t needed.
Browns quarterback Colt McCoy had a solid game, completing 17 of 24 passes for 199 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Cleveland got a strong game out of running back Chris Ogbonnaya, who finished with 115 yards and a touchdown on 21 attempts. A 40-yard run in the fourth quarter helped the Browns use more time off the clock.
The win pushes the Browns to 4-6 on the season, and drops the Jaguars to 3-7.
