- These teams last met on October 30, 2011, with the Browns losing 20-10 in San Francisco. Cleveland was down 17-0 before Phil Dawson hit a 52-yard field goal heading into the half. The Browns got a 45-yard touchdown pass from QB Colt McCoy to WR Joshua Cribbs with under seven minutes to play in the game, drawing to within 17-10. The 49ers tacked on a field goal with under two minutes to play, though, sealing the Browns' fate. McCoy and Chris Ogbonnaya were the Browns' leading passers and rushers, respectively.
