The Browns controlled in all three phases of the game and never once surrendered the lead. The Browns dominated having 481 total yards to San Francisco’s 221.
The Browns finally put together a complete team performance relying on strong defense play and having the biggest rushing performance of the season. This type of performance is what the front office and coaching staff described as the makeup of the team this season. Both the defense and run game were major disappointments this season but it finally clicked in the victory over the 49ers.
Starting his first game in about a month, Johnny Manziel had a solid outing completing 21 of 31 passes for 270 with one touchdown and one interception. Manziel effectively managed the game and was the commander of the Browns offense. Manziel showed leadership and commanded the Browns offense being in total control using audibles at the line of scrimmage. Manziel had a very positive performance in the win and was a promising sign for the Browns moving forward.
