By the Numbers: Penalties pile up for Browns in loss to Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts -- We’re breaking down the biggest numbers from the box score after Cleveland’s 27-13 loss to the Patriots.

13 - Penalties committed by the Browns, all of which seemingly came at crushing moments throughout the game. New England got three first downs and prevented a number of potential Cleveland first downs because of these miscues.

3 - Turnovers in a three-play sequence in Sunday’s first quarter. Two Nick Chubb fumbles and a Baker Mayfield interception turned a 3-0 Patriots advantage into a 17-point deficit in a matter of minutes.

59 - Yards on a screen pass to James White with 8:26 to play in the third quarter. Had the Browns, trailing 17-10 at the time, stopped New England on that third-and-10 play, they would have forced a punt and gotten the ball back with a chance to tie or go ahead. Instead, the Patriots closed out the drive with a Julian Edelman touchdown.

3:56 - Time of possession for the Browns in the first quarter.

131 - Yards for Chubb in his third 100-yard game of the season. He’s now at 738 yards on the season and is averaging 5.5 yards per carry.

10 - Sacks on the season for Myles Garrett, who collected his latest in Sunday’s fourth quarter to give him at least one sack in six of Cleveland’s seven games this season.

2 - Blocked kicks for Denzel Ward since joining the Browns as a first-round rookie last season. He flew around the edge and dove to block Mike Nugent’s attempt and keep New England from extending its lead late in the second quarter.

10 - Field goals in as many attempts for rookie Austin Seibert, who connected on kicks from 38 and 47 yards in Sunday’s loss.

5 - Touchdown catches by Browns tight ends this season, a total that grew after Demetrius Harris’ 21-yarder in Sunday’s second quarter.

310 - Yards of offense for the Browns -- just 8 fewer than New England’s 318.
