By the Numbers: Browns offense comes alive in 2nd half, stumbles in overtime

TAMPA — We’re breaking down the Browns’ 26-23 overtime loss to the Buccaneers by the numbers.

14 - The Browns committed 14 penalties that accounted for 114 yards and gave the Buccaneers a number of first downs. Tampa Bay committed eight of its own in a sloppy game.

6 - Cleveland’s offense ran six plays in overtime, going three-and-out on both of its series.

10 - After struggling last week against the Chargers, Jarvis Landry was the star of Cleveland’s passing attack. He was targeted 15 times and caught a game-high 10 passes for 97 yards and a touchdown.

104.4 - Rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield rode a big second half to a much better overall performance than the previous week. He completed 23-of-34 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns -- good for a rating of 104.4. He was sacked five times, the last of which was the costliest, as it took the Browns well outside of field goal range during overtime.

35 - Mayfield made one of his biggest plays of the game with his feet, scrambling 35 yards on a second-and-26 midway through the fourth quarter. He finished with 43 rushing yards.

80 - In his first game as Cleveland’s starting running back in the wake of Friday’s trade of Carlos Hyde, rookie Nick Chubb rushed for 80 yards on 18 carries. He found the end zone for the third time this season when he scored from 1 yard in the fourth quarter.

79 - Browns punter Britton Colquitt boomed a second-quarter punt 79 yards, the longest of his career.

11 - Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston completed passes to 11 different receivers. The 10th was star veteran DeSean Jackson, who was guarded mostly by rookie Denzel Ward and didn’t have a catch until the 7-minute mark of overtime.

365 - Winston threw for 365 yards but didn’t have a passing touchdown and was picked off twice. He had one of Tampa Bay’s three rushing touchdowns.

4 - The Browns’ defense produced four takeaways, including one in overtime. Christian Kirksey intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble while Jamie Collins collected his first pick of the year. Cleveland now has 20 takeaways on the season.

3 - The Browns had just three first downs in Sunday’s first half. During one stretch, the Browns went three-and-out on three consecutive series.

74 - Cleveland produced only 74 yards of offense on its 29 offensive plays in the first half. The Buccaneers, meanwhile, had 243.

2 - The Browns defense committed two costly penalties on third downs inside the red zone on a second-quarter drive that ended with a Winston 13-yard rushing touchdown.
