No. 9 all-time Cleveland Browns player since 1999- Phil Dawson, K
“In Phil, We Trust” is the way most Cleveland fans will remember the Browns kicker Phil Dawson because he was such a reliable player for so many teams that were usually lousy. He was the one thing in most games, that Browns fans could always count on.
He was part of the “Snow Globe” game against the Buffalo Bills when there was a blizzard down at First Energy Stadium in 2007.
Later that season, he was on the winning end of one of the most bizarre wins for the Browns. Dawson attempted a 51-yard field goal against the Baltimore Ravens that initially hit the support bar and bounced back into play. It was reviewed and correctly called a made-field goal to give Cleveland a tie. The two teams then went to overtime where Dawson made the game-winning field goal.
He was a member of the Browns for 14 seasons and was the best kicker they’ve had since 1999. He started in the first season back for Cleveland and didn’t move on until 2013 when he went to kick for the San Francisco 49ers.
For his career as a Brown, he went 107 for 113 on kicks between 20-29 yards. From 30-39 yards he went 95 for 111. He went 67 for 93 from 40-49 and from beyond 50 yards he finished going 24-34. Overall, that’s an 84 percent accuracy clip.
