Cleveland, however, understands this team could be dangerous despite their record. Head coach Hue Jackson said as much when he discussed the upcoming game during the week of preparation and said this doesn’t look like a 0-3 team.
Still, the Browns have a great chance to score a big win here and continue their exciting season. One of the biggest reasons for hope is the play of rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.
The No. 1 overall pick made his debut in relief of an injured Tyrod Taylor last week and now makes his first start in the ‘Black Hole.’
Stick with us as we keep you updated with the score and provide links to the biggest plays of the game.
So far each team has exchanged punts in the early part of the game. Baker Mayfield was picked off by Gareon Conley, his first career interception. It was taken in for a touchdown, putting the Raiders up 7-0. Baker was trying to hit Antonio Callaway and the ball was off his hands.
The Browns answered with a long drive but came up short — thanks to a questionable play call trying to get it to Antonio Callaway. Greg Joseph knocked in the kick to make it 7-3.
Oakland missed a field goal on the following drive, keeping the score the same early in the second quarter. Rookie running back Nick Chubb took the ball 63-yards to the house to give them the lead on the road.
The rookies are balling for the Browns this season. Cleveland went for two and the ball hit the turf — intended for Callaway who is having a rough start.
Mayfield shook off the early pick-six and has been playing well in his first start. He connected with Darren Fells on a 49-yard touchdown at the 9:00 mark in the second to extend the lead. It was the first touchdown pass of Mayfield’s career.
They again went for two, this time Duke Johnson took it in and made it a 17-7 game. Oakland answered with a touchdown from Derek Carr to make it 17-14.
Cleveland saw Joseph connect on a 28-yard field goal to go up 20-14. Baker hits Jarvis Landry for a two-yard touchdown to go up 26-14.
A two-point try was unsuccessful by Duke Johnson but overturned on a challenge making in 28-14. The Browns issues with covering tight ends continued as the Raiders capitalized on a strip-sack from Maurice Hurst by hitting Jared Cook for a score to make it 28-21 with 5:34 left in the third.
Oakland then got the ball back and made it 28-24 in the fourth as we are again coming down to the wire it seems. After a bad snap turned the ball over to the Raiders, they took the lead back on a touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson.
The Browns had abother rough drive and a dropped pass led them to punting. Oakland hit another field goal to extend their lead to 34-28 with just over 10 minutes to go.
Cleveland responded and a 59-yard pass from Mayfield to Callaway set up a Carlos Hyde touchdown to go up 35-34.
The Browns may have put it out of reach with another big Chubb run. This time he went 41 yards to make it 42-34.
Chubb has 105 yards and two TDs on his first three carries.
Oakland moved it to the 6-yard line, but turned it over on downs with less than two minutes to go. Hyde ran it three times for a first down which will ice the game and give the Browns their first back to back wins in four seasons. Or so we thought as that was overruled in review and Oakland will get another try.
They took advantage and again Carr hit Jared Cook for a touchdown and Jordy Nelson for a two-point conversion. The Raiders tie it up with just 30 seconds to go. Mayfield threw a pick trying to take a deep shot and we will have overtime for the second game in four weeks.
That bad move by the refs led to Oakland winning in OT by a score of 45-42, dropping the Browns to 1-2-1 on the season. The bad call will be talked about, as will a sack fumble that was blown dead that could have put the dagger in Oakland during regulaiton.
In Week 5, the Browns will be back at home in FirstEnergy Stadium. They will play host in that game to an AFC North rival in the Baltimore Ravens.
