Game Preview








Browns 20, Raiders 17

Brandon Weeden throws for a career-high 364 yards and a touchdown to lead Cleveland to a victory over Oakland before an announced crowd of 43,641 at Coliseum on Dec. 2, 2012.

The Browns (4-8) snap a 12-game road losing streak in handing the Raiders (3-9) their fifth straight loss.

Carson Palmer throws for 351 yards and two touchdowns for Oakland, which equals its longest losing streak dropping six straight in 2007.

Trailing 13-10, Oakland drives to the Cleveland 33-yard line before Palmer is intercepted by Sheldon Brown at the Browns' 6 with 9:31 remaining.

Weedon then engineers a 94-yard, 10-play drive culminated by Tony Richardson's 3-yard touchdown run, giving the visiting Browns a 20-10 advantage with 3:27 left.

Palmer throws a 17-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Myers with one second remaining for the final margin.

The Raiders' Myers finishes with 14 catches for 130 yards, tying Tim Brown's single-game franchise record for receptions.


QB Brandon Weeden — Throws for 364 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. Weeden is 5 for 6 passing for 70 yards on Cleveland's fourth-quarter touchdown drive, giving the Browns a 20-10 lead with 3:27 left.

WR Josh Gordon — Has 116 receiving yards and a touchdown on 7 catches.

CB Sheldon Brown — His fourth-quarter interception of a Carson Palmer pass stops a potential Oakland scoring drive with Cleveland clinging to a 13-10 advantage.

TE Brandon Myers — Has 14 catches for 130 yards and a touchdown.

QB Carson Palmer — Throws for 351 yards and two touchdowns on 34 of 54 passing but his fourth-quarter interception prevents Oakland from taking its first lead or at worst tying the game.

WR Rod Streater — Has a 64-yard touchdown catch late in the third quarter, narrowing the Oakland deficit to 13-10. Streater, a rookie from Temple, finishes with three catches for 96 yards.

The Browns' Phil Dawson has a 28-yard field goal attempt blocked by the Raiders' Desmond Bryant, ending Dawson's streak of 29 consecutive field goals over two seasons. Dawson is 23 of 23 on field-goal attempts this season before Bryant's third-quarter block.

With a 51-yard field goal in the second quarter, the Raiders' Sebastian Janikowski ties Morten Andersen for third most all-time with 40 field goals of at least 50 yards.
The Browns end a 12-game road losing streak with a victory over the Raiders. They had not won a road game since a 27-19 win at Indianapolis in Week 2 of the 2011 season.
Brandon Myers' 130 receiving yards on 14 catches are the most by a Raiders tight end since Zach Miller had 139 receiving yards against Philadelphia on Oct. 18, 2009.

“We can't stop the run, we can't stop the pass. Things just aren't going well on defense. Right now I guess we're just a bad defense. We can't really hide it. At this point, the numbers don't really allow it. We're just bad right now.''

Raiders CB Michael Bush

"No one is coming in here and saving us. It's our job and we have to get it done, and the guys in the locker room are still working hard to get it done."

Raiders coach Dennis Allen

"You don't want streaks like that. Let's face it, over the last few years we haven't done a great job of winning games. And so, as we take this journey with this young football team, they're starting to learn."

Browns coach Pat Shurmur

"I was trying to take a shot there, go for the touchdown quickly and just didn't put the ball in the right spot, didn't give Juron (Criner) a chance to make a play on the ball."

Raiders QB Carson Palmer

4: Dropped passes by Oakland's Denarius Moore, who finishes with 2 catches for 31 yards.
10: Raiders penalties for 65 yards compared to only two infractions for 25 yards for the Browns.
904: Combined total yards for Cleveland and Oakland. The Browns have 475 total yards while the Raiders have 429.

The attendance of 43,641 is the lowest at Coliseum for a Raiders home game since the Raiders drew 32,218 on Oct. 3, 2010 against Houston.

With the victory, the Browns improve to 4-6 against the Raiders in regular-season games in Oakland. Oakland leads the series 14-8, including 2-0 postseason.
