We’re breaking down the most interesting numbers from the box score after the Browns’ 20-13 loss to the Rams.

20 - The Browns, playing without several starters throughout the defense, limited the Rams to just 20 points in Sunday’s loss. The Rams scored 20 or fewer points just once during the regular season last year.

3 - It’s the number of turnovers produced by Cleveland’s defense and, unfortunately, the number of points the Browns offense got from those turnovers.

6 - Sacks on the season for Myles Garrett, who stripped Rams quarterback Jared Goff in the second quarter, leading to Austin Seibert’s second field goal of the game.

6 - The Browns went six consecutive quarters without surrendering a touchdown until the Rams scored on a Goff touchdown pass to Cooper Kupp with 10:40 to play in the third quarter.

19, 214 - Combined catches and yards for Rams WRs Kupp and Brandin Cooks, who accounted for the vast majority of Goff’s 24 completions and 269 passing yards.

8 - Number of penalties committed by the Browns, who have 35 through three games.

131 - Yards of offense for Nick Chubb, who rushed for 96 and added another 35 through the air on four receptions. On the season, he has 233 rushing yards to go along with 11 catches for 81 yards.

2 - Interceptions for the Cleveland defense, its first two of the 2019 season.

4 - Trips to the red zone for the Browns offense, which came away with a touchdown just once to go along with two field goals. On the season, Cleveland has scored touchdowns on four of its eight trips inside the 20-yard line.
