Browns step up without Garrett, down Eagles in steady rain

CLEVELAND (AP) — Kareem Hunt lifted off just inside the 5-yard line, soared over the head of Philadelphia's Jalen Mills like an Olympic long jumper and landed in the end zone.

Without star Myles Garrett, the Browns needed someone to step up.

Hunt went above and beyond — and he wasn't the only one.

Hunt hurdled Mills on a sensational touchdown run, Olivier Vernon made up for Garrett's absence due to COVID-19 by getting three sacks and a safety, and Cleveland stayed firmly in the playoff picture with a wet 22-17 victory over the Eagles.
