By the Numbers

By the Numbers: Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb find the end zone on big running night

CLEVELAND — Breaking down Friday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Bills by the numbers…

164 — The Browns' run game came alive to the tune of 164 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 32 carries. The unit struggled in last week's opener against the Giants but bounced back nicely in front of the home crowd. 

64 — Leading the way was Carlos Hyde, who carried the ball nine times for 64 yards and a touchdown. The former Ohio State standout also delivered the play of the game in which he leveled Bills safety Jordan Poyer with a stiff-arm on a 26-yard run. 

22 — At least on paper, the Browns' defense could be one of the league's better units this season. That showed Friday as the first-team group held Buffalo to 22 yards in four drives, flustering quarterback AJ McCarron in the process.

83 — After an explosive showing in New York, Cleveland's pass game was off Friday, combining for just 83 yards and no touchdowns. 

22 — Facing his former team, Browns starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor passed for 22 yards on 4-of-7 throws in limited action. Taylor, traded to Cleveland by Buffalo in March, spent the past three seasons with the Bills.

75 — Taylor's understudy, rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, passed for 75 yards on 7-of-13 throws. Mayfield, the first overall pick in the NFL Draft, showed poise and patience in the pocket behind an up-and-down performance from Cleveland's second-team offensive line. 

1 — Rookie running back Nick Chubb scored his first NFL touchdown, a 1-yard run that capped a late drive in the fourth quarter. Chubb finished with 11 carries for 53 yards.

31 — Backup receiver Da'Mari Scott led the Browns with 31 receiving yards on two catches. Scott is fighting to make the active roster in a room that includes Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins.

5 — Linebacker James Burgess Jr. led Cleveland with five tackles, including three solo stops. ​
