By the Numbers: Browns' late collapse spoils multiple bright spots

CLEVELAND — Breaking down Sunday's loss to the Packers…

14 — In what was perhaps the Browns' most complete game this season, they saw a 14-point lead (their largest advantage of the season) evaporate in the fourth quarter. Not long after, Cleveland fell in overtime, 27-21, when Green Bay quarterback Brett Hundley connected with Davante Adams on a 25-yard touchdown pass with 5:05 to play in the extra period.

93 — Playing without starters/key contributors in Danny Shelton, Briean Boddy-Calhoun and Jabrill Peppers, the Browns held Green Bay to 93 total yards in the first half. Unfortunately, the Packers had much better fortune in the second, finishing with 341.

68 — In his second game back from a three-year suspension, wide receiver Josh Gordon caught three passes for 69 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown catch that was his first since Dec. 15, 2013. Gordon, who led the NFL in receiving in 2013, has seven catches for 154 yards in two games.

62 — Corey Coleman also had a fine performance, catching five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown. The second-year receiver and 2016 first-round pick now has 20 catches for 268 yards and two scores in six games.

3 — Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer passed for 214 yards and three touchdown passes, matching the most by a rookie in one game. He also threw two interceptions, including a backbreaking one on third-and-2 in overtime that capped the team's lone possession in extra time.

121 — Running back Isaiah Crowell had 19 carries for 121 yards, including a long run of 37 yards. He became the first Brown to rush for at least 600 yards in four consecutive seasons since Greg Pruitt in 1975-78.

100 — While the Browns have struggled in the red zone this season, they broke that trend Sunday. Cleveland finished 3-for-3 inside the 20-yard line for the first time this season.

265 — Without all-world quarterback Aaron Rodgers, third-year backup Brett Hundley has flashed potential at different times this season. He did so again Sunday, completing 35-of-46 throws for 265 yards and three touchdowns after a slow start. Rodgers, who hasn't played since suffering a shoulder injury in Week 6, could return as early as next week.

57 — The Browns ran 57 offensive plays compared to Green Bay's 74. They averaged 6.1 yards per play compared to the Packers' 4.6.

The Browns play the Green Bay Packers in Week 14.
