Vinny Testaverde threw the ball all over the field against the Browns, completing 27-of-50 passes for 370 yards and two touchdowns.

It was the four passes that ended up in Cleveland's hands, though, that ultimately steered the game to the visitors in this Nov. 5, 1989 matchup at Tampa Stadium.

Felix Wright and Thane Gash both had pick-6's in Cleveland's 28-point second quarter to build a lead Tampa Bay would never catch in the 42-31 victory. The win was the Browns' third in a row and moved them to 6-3 in a season that saw them finish 9-6-1 and advance to the playoffs.

Cleveland travels to Tampa Bay on Saturday for its third preseason game.
