The suffocation of the Browns offense

Posted by Chris Brown on November 30, 2014 – 6:41 pm

The Bills defense gave up a good bit of yardage in the first half to the Cleveland Browns, but just three points. Come the second half Buffalo’s defensive unit closed like a vice on the Browns’ attack as evidenced by Cleveland’s second half possessions.

Following their missed field goal drive in the second quarter here is how the next seven possessions played out for the Browns.
