San Diego got one last shot at coming away with the win. They drove down to the Cleveland Browns' 44-yard line but were unable to go anywhere from there after four-consecutive incompletions ended the game.
The weather was frightful with gusting winds and sporadic rain and that forced the game into a low-scoring and close contest. That presumably favored the Chargers' second-ranked rush defense.
However, Trent Richardson and the Cleveland Browns' offensive line had different plans. Richardson ran for a career-high 122 yards and the Browns moved the ball easily, at times, against the tough Chargers defensive front.
In a game which saw the Cleveland Browns score first, then punt nine consecutive times, it was definitely a close and hard-fought battle by both teams.
Clevelands' defense allowed the Chargers to drive several times into their territory but came up with two fourth-down stops and forced two Nick Novak field goals (43 and 32 yards).
Next up, the Browns will prepare to host AFC North rival Baltimore next week at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
