Instant Reaction: Last-Second Field Goal Lifts Browns Past Falcons 26-24

Atlanta and Cleveland went back and forth in the first half, but the Falcons managed to take a slim 14-13 lead into the break.

The Browns took over in the third quarter and took a 23-14 lead, but were forced to kick a field goal as time expired to grab the win.

Turning Point:

After the Falcons kicked what looked like the game-winning field goal with 44 seconds left in the game, Cleveland quarterback Brian Hoyer led a drive all the down the field to set up a game-winer for Browns K Billy Cundiff.

Key Stat:

Cleveland held Atlanta to just 63 yards rushing on the day, forcing their offense to become one-dimensional. The Falcons were unable to control the game because of that, which allowed the Browns to come back and get the win.

Cleveland MVP:

Running back Isaiah Crowell had a great game for the Browns, rushing for 88 yards and two touchdowns on just 12 carries.

Atlanta MVP:

Quarterback Matt Ryan seemed to break out of his slump in this game, completing 27/43 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns.

What’s Next?

Cleveland will travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills next weekend, while Atlanta will host Arizona.
