Linebacker David Brandon intercepted a short John Friesz pass and ran 30 yards untouched for the winning score with 7:20 left in overtime.
The Browns had forged a 24-24 tie on Bernie Kosar’s 15-yard touchdown pass to running back Leroy Hoard with 4:09 left in the fourth quarter. Earlier, Cleveland had erased a 14-point deficit to tie the game, 17-17, on Kosar’s third-quarter 6-yard scoring toss to Hoard and Joe Morris’ fourth-quarter 1-yard scoring run.
Kosar finished 26 of 42 for 297 yards, the two touchdowns and no interceptions. Reggie Langhorne (six catches, 75 yards), Eric Metcalf (six catches, 72 yards) and Webster Slaughter (five catches, 75 yards) were among his top receivers.
The victory made the Browns 3-4 in Bill Belichick’s first season as their coach. They finished 6-10. San Diego became 1-7 on its way to a 4-12 campaign.
