Predict the Score:
- RB Shaun Draughn appeared in four games with San Diego in 2014. Quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell (2012) spent time on the Chargers roster as quarterback.
- WR Travis Benjamin is tied for the NFL lead with five touchdowns this season (four receiving and one punt return). His four receiving scores are a career-high and tied for second-most in the league. He is the first Brown to record a touchdown reception in three consecutive games since WR Josh Gordon did it in five straight games in 2013.
- P Andy Lee is leading the NFL with a 47.6 net punting average and is second with an average of 54.3 yards per punt.
- TE Gary Barnidge could become the first Browns tight end to record back-to-back 100-yard receiving games since Milt Morin did it in 1968. Barnidge also needs just 83 receiving yards to surpass his career high of 242 set in 2009 as a member of the Panthers.
- QB Josh McCown could join Otto Graham, Brian Sipe and Brian Hoyer as the only Browns QBs to throw for 300 yard in consecutive games.
- The Browns will wear their brown-tops, white-pants uniform combination:

- These teams last met on October 28, 2012, with the Browns winning 7-6 in Cleveland. The Browns scored on their opening possession via a 25-yard touchdown run by RB Trent Richardson. That was the play where OG Shawn Lauvao held up Richardson after he stumbled through a hole, and shoved him on his way to the end zone. The Chargers could only manage two field goals as QB Philip Rivers went 18-of-34 for 154 yards. The low-scoring game was a result of steady rain and 45 degree temperatures throughout the game, to go along with winds around 20 MPH.
- The Browns’ last win in San Diego was a 30-24 overtime victory on Oct. 20, 1991.
