CARSON, Calif. --The last team the Cleveland Browns defeated was the San Diego Chargers, last Christmas Eve.
This year, the Los Angles Chargers high powered offense made sure they would not meet the same fate, using 421 yards of total offense to defeat the Browns, 19-10.
Despite only 291 yards in offense of their own, the Browns entered the fourth quarter with the game still in doubt trailing 19-7. Rookie Kicker Zane Gonzalez hit an early field goal before the Browns mounted a long drive.
However, reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year, Joey Bosa forced a fumble with a vicious sack of DeShone Kizer deep in Chargers territory, and Los Angles recovered with less than 5 minuets to play. A wild interception from Kizer in the game's final minute sealed the win for the Chargers, who move to 6-6 and into a tie in the AFC West.
Philip Rivers led the way for the Chargers, passing for 344 yards and a Touchdown. Former Browns Kicker, Travis Coons kicked four field goals in his team debut.
On the bright side for Cleveland, wide receiver Josh Gordon played for first time since 2014, and led the team in receiving for the game with four catches for 85 yards. This marked the first time Gordon has suited up for the team since week 16 of 2014 due to substance abuse suspensions.
Tight End David Njoku caught the only touchdown pass from Kizer, who threw for 215 yards to go along with an interception and a fumble lost.
Next week the Browns will continue the search for their first win of the season when they take on the Green Bay Packers, 1:00 pm at First Energy Stadium.
