Cleveland running back Trent Richardson thought the Browns should have stuck with the game plan they used at the beginning of the game.

The Cleveland Browns fell 38-21 to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, and afterward, running back Trent Richardson expressed some frustration over the play calling. Richardson scored two touchdowns but finished the game with just 11 carries.

"I think we’ve just got a game plan, and the game plan we had at the beginning of the game, I think we should’ve stuck with it," he said. "But we didn’t stick with the game plan and we tried to do some other stuff, and the outcome came in a different way."

Both of his touchdowns came in the first half, and Cleveland had a 14-10 lead at halftime. Washington responded with two scores in the third quarter to take a 24-14 lead, and the Browns began leaning more heavily on the passing game. Richardson only carried the ball twice in the second half and finished the game with 28 yards rushing. Cleveland ran the ball a total of 15 times.
