Christmas miracle: Cleveland Browns win first game of 2016 season

The Browns improve to 1-14 and give coach Hue Jackson his first win.

The Cleveland Browns defeated the San Diego Chargers Saturday 20-17 to pick up their first win of the season. Tight end Antonio Gates, the former Kent State Golden Flashes product had a game high eight receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown. Isaiah Crowell added two touchdowns on the ground to go with 54 rushing yards. They survived injuries to quarterback Robert Griffin III (concussion) and cornerback Joe Haden (neck) and nine sacks by the Chargers (5-10).

San Diego had one more chance to earn the win, but Lambo's possibly game-tying field goal from 45 yards out missed right as time expired, handing Cleveland the win.

There were some injuries for the Browns in the game. The first play, on 4&10, sent the Chargers to the Browns 35. The associated moneylines for this game are San Diego -190 and Cleveland +170.
