By the Numbers: Baker Mayfield rebounds with 351 passing yards in 2nd half, but Browns can’t overcome INTs

18 - The Browns ran just 18 plays in the first half, as Houston possessed the ball for more than 21 minutes in a dominant start to the game.

15:10 - The Texans completely controlled possession in the first half on their way to holding the ball for 37:35 -- good for more than a quarter’s worth of an advantage over the Browns (22:25).

4 - Cleveland’s offense committed four turnovers — three first-half interceptions and a fumble in the third quarter. It ties the season-high Cleveland set Week 4 against the Raiders.

0 - For the first time all season, the Browns defense was unable to force a turnover.

0 - Cleveland didn’t surrender a sack for a third consecutive game. That hasn’t happened since 1988.

187 - Led by running back Lamar Miller, the Texans rushed for 187 yards on 39 attempts. It marked the second-most Cleveland has allowed on the ground all season.

3 - Baker Mayfield had his first three-interception game as a pro, and all of them came in the first half. The rookie quarterback had just five completions for 46 yards in the first 30 minutes.

10 - After his worst half as a pro, Mayfield came out firing in the second half. He completed his first 10 passes for 219 yards and finished 29-of-43 for 397 yards and a touchdown.

1.5 - Myles Garrett added to his team-leading sack total, finishing with 1.5 to increase his total to 11.5 on the season.

103 - Wide receiver Jarvis Landry had his third 100-yard receiving game of the season and first since Week 3, finishing with 103 yards on six catches.

The Cleveland Browns play the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.
