Browns vs. Chargers score: Browns hold 7-6 lead after 3 quarters

The offense still hasn't gotten going, but the Cleveland Browns are holding onto a 7-6 lead over the San Diego Chargers going into the fourth quarter on Sunday. A field goal by the Chargers late in the third quarter trimmed the lead to a single point, but Cleveland still has the advantage going into the final period.

Other than Trent Richardson, the Browns' offense has done very little. Richardson has carried the ball 21 times for 101 yards, including a 26-yard romp for the game's only touchdown thus far, but the team has just 94 passing yards with 15 minutes left in the game.

Brandon Weeden has struggled against the Chargers' pass defense, competing just 9-of-24 passes for 103 yards, so there's been significant pressure on the defense to maintain the lead. San Diego has just 177 total yards so far, but the Chargers are still easily within striking distance of pulling away.
