The Cleveland Browns fall to 0-9 after their 35-10 loss to the Cowboys. The Browns became the first team since 1964 to give up 25+ points in the first nine games of the season. Overall this game was terrible and it started on the first drive. Center Cam Erving got ejected from the game after a personal foul flag for throwing the helmet of Cowboy's defensive tackle David Irving. Irving was also ejected for a personal foul on Erving.
The Browns leading receiver was running back Isaiah Crowell, who caught four passes for 63 yards. 44 of them were on a catch and run on the first drive of the game, which set up a field goal. Terrelle Pryor caught five passes for 47 yards, one of which was a 12 yard touchdown at the end of the first half. And Corey Coleman caught three passes for 41 yards in his first game back after breaking his hand before week 3.
The Browns were 1/9 on third down and only had the ball for 20:21. They couldn't keep their own defense off the field. But the offense, at the very least, did protect the ball this week...not committing a turnover.
Jason Witten had a huge game. Eight catches for 134 yards and a touchdown. This was Witten's first 100 yard game since week 17 in 2013...yes 2013...2.5 seasons ago. Cole Beasley also had a solid game, catching six passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. Dez Bryant was held in check though. He only had one catch for 19 yards...and was only targeted four times.
On the ground Dallas did whatever they wanted. Ezekiel Elliott had 92 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. Alfred Morris had 56 yards on 17 carries. Dallas as a team averaged four yards per carry and had a 168 yards on the ground.
