CLEVELAND – The depleted Cleveland Browns still had a chance, but they couldn’t get that final first down and couldn’t manufacture that final stop to hang on.
But after intercepting Raiders QB Derek Carr, the Browns couldn’t get a first down on three Nick Chubb runs to put the game away. “
With the loss, Cleveland fell to 7-7 and into last place in the AFC North, with ESPN’s Football Power Index now giving the Browns just a 17% chance to make the playoffs.
Pivotal play: Browns linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah forced Carr into a fumble in the third quarter, setting up Cleveland’s first score, while putting the crowd back into the game.
