Aggressive Browns Put Away the Panthers 26-20; Move to 5-7-1 – Five Takeaways

CLEVELAND – Confidence is growing in Cleveland, thanks in part to a quarterback who is redefining the franchise, an interim head coach that’s not afraid to take chances, and an offensive coordinator that has allowed the players to make plays.

Sunday at home against the 6-6 Carolina Panthers, the Browns went toe-to-toe with Cam Newton and the Cats, and in the end pulled out a 26-20 win on a chilly day at the Lakefront.

Baker Mayfield continued to play like a star in the making, and Jarvis Landry finally had the type of game Browns fans have been waiting for, getting free on a couple runs and making a great catch on Mayfield throw to make it a 14-14 game.

The Browns defense stepped up when it counted the most, making a huge stop on a pick with 1:04 to play to seal the win.

The victory puts the team at 5-7-1, clinching their best home mark since the 2007 season. Here’s five takeaways from the big win as the team STILL has an outside shot at the postseason.
