Browns vs. Cowboys score: Cleveland leads 13-0 at halftime

The Cleveland Browns have a shutout in the making against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.

The Cleveland Browns lead the Dallas Cowboys 13-0 going into halftime on Sunday afternoon after an unusually strong half of performance from a team that has generally struggled on the road this season. The Browns are 0-4 away from home this year, although they lost three of those games by a touchdown or less.

The Cowboys have avoided their usual helping of turnovers so far against the Cleveland defense, but they also have struggled to move the ball with any efficiency. Tony Romo has passed for just 74 yards while getting sacked three times, and the team is averaging just 2.1 yards per carry overall.

That quality defense has allowed Brandon Weeden and company to play on some relatively short fields, making things easier on an offense that's had its ups and downs of late. Weeden is 10-of-17 for 95 yards and a touchdown so far, while Trent Richardson has 62 yards on 16 carries and three catches for 31 yards.
