By the Numbers: Big plays, turnovers hamper Browns in Houston

HOUSTON -- Breaking down Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Texans...

3 - In his first NFL start, Kevin Hogan struggled against a talented Houston defense. The second-year quarterback passed for 140 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions, including a pick-six, on 20-of-37 throws. Hogan, who earned the nod over rookie DeShone Kizer, was also sacked four times.

225 - Rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson passed for 225 yards, three touchdowns and an interception that Jason McCourty returned 56 yards for a touchdown. Watson has now combined for 13 total scores in his past three games as the Texans offense continues to find its stride.

5 - McCourty recorded his third interception and fifth takeaway this season. The veteran cornerback has been a bright spot since joining the team this past spring.

340 - Houston out-gained Cleveland 340-247 in total yards.

58 - Browns running back Isaiah Crowell had 58 yards on 12 carries, including a long of 14 yards. He led Cleveland on a day in which it finished with 134 yards on the ground.

39 - Outside of Pro Bowl cornerback Johnathan Joseph's 82-yard pick-six, Houston's two biggest plays were both gains of 39 yards. Watson connected with Will Fuller for a 39-yard touchdown in the first quarter and rookie running back D'Onta Foreman broke a long run that set up a 1-yard touchdown catch by Braxton Miller later in the half.

41 - Kasen Williams led the Browns with four catches for 41 yards. He joined the team off waivers before the start of the season from Seattle.

11 - The Browns continued to struggle with penalties, committing 11 on Sunday compared to Houston's four.

The Browns play the Houston Texans in Week 6.
