Browns vs. Raiders: Final Report Card, Player Grades for Cleveland

The Cleveland Browns (4-8) defeated the Oakland Raiders (3-9) 20-17 in Oakland in a close Week 13 NFL matchup.

Cleveland snapped a 12-game road losing streak that begun when it lost to the Raiders in Oakland during Week 6 of the 2011 season.

Sheldon Brown intercepted Carson Palmer inside the Cleveland Browns 10-yard line and then the Browns went 94 yards on 14 plays and scored on a 3-yard Trent Richardson touchdown run. That put the team up by two scores with a little over two minutes left to play.

Palmer threw a late touchdown pass with one second left to play to tight end Brandon Myers to finish the scoring.

Rod Streater beat Buster Skrine on a seam route and took the pass 64 yards for a Raiders touchdown. Skrine misplayed the route and Palmer lobbed it over the top for an easy touchdown connection.

The play brought the Raiders within three points in the fourth quarter.

Earlier, a completion to Greg Little put the Browns in Raiders territory, and the rookie tandem of Brandon Weeden and Josh Gordon connected on a 44-yard touchdown pass and catch. Gordon burned CB Ron Bartell down the sideline and Weeden hit him in stride for his fifth touchdown of the season.

Phil Dawson connected on his 22nd and 23rd straight field goals of the season in the opening moments of the first half. It was his 28th and 29th straight made attempts dating back to last season. That set the franchise record for consecutive made field goals.

However, Dawson missed a 28-yard attempt in the third quarter after it was deflected at the line of scrimmage and sailed left. His streak ends at 29, which is 13 short of the NFL record of 42 straight.
