By the numbers: Jets rally past Browns behind 24 unanswered points

The Browns couldn't take advantage of a big halftime lead, falling, 31-28, to the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon at FirstEnergy Stadium.

We're breaking it down by the numbers:

24 — In what was a tale of two halves, as the Browns gave up 24 unanswered points and watched a double-digit lead at halftime dissipate against a Jets team that capitalized on big plays and Cleveland's mistakes. The Browns scored a late touchdown, but it was too little to overcome an otherwise tough second half.

407 — The Browns offense finished with 407 yards, most of which came in the first 30 minutes of play. Cleveland amassed 274 yards in the first half before slowing down in the second.

101 — Terrelle Pryor finished with 101 yards on six catches, the second 100-plus yard game of his relatively short NFL career. Most of Pryor's production came against All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis.

106 — Before fading in the second, the Browns held the Jets to 106 total yards in the first half while building a 20-7 lead. They limited New York to less than 30 yards in the first quarter.

339 — In his first start since suffering an injured shoulder/collarbone against the Ravens in Week 2, quarterback Josh McCown passed for 339 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in an uneven performance. McCown shouldered much of the blame in his postgame press conference, saying he didn't think he played as well as he could have.

3 — Rookie defensive end Carl Nassib used his 6-foot-7 frame to bat down three passes at the line of scrimmage. He and second-round pick Emmanuel Ogbah (six tackles, one tackle for loss) made their presence known throughout the afternoon.

12 — Third-year linebacker Christian Kirksey led the Browns with 12 tackles in an effort that saw him fly around to the football all day.

171 — After being held in check early, Matt Forte and Bilal Powell combined for 174 yards and three touchdowns to help pace the New York comeback.

93 — Jets receiver Quincy Enunwa had 91 yards on four catches, including a 24-yard touchdown that seemed to change the game's momentum early in the third quarter.

50 — The Browns converted 50 percent of their third-down attempts, going 8-for-16. Meanwhile, the Jets went 7-of-15.

The Browns play the New York Jets in Week 8.
