1 – Punt forced by the Browns defense in the last two weeks

1 – Red zone touchdown by the Raiders offense, in four attempts

2 – Baker Mayfield passes that hit Jarvis Landry in both hands in the end zone. The Browns did not score a touchdown.

3 – Third down conversions by the Browns offense, in 10 attempts
