-WR Travis Benjamin, who is now with the Chargers, began his career with the Browns in 2012 as a fourth-round draft pick.
-Senior offensive assistant Al Saunders spent six seasons (1983- 88) with San Diego, including serving as head coach from 1986- 88. Offensive line coach Hal Hunter coached the Chargers offensive line from 2006-12. Chargers assistant strength and conditioning coach Rick Lyle played for the Cleveland Browns from 1994-95 after joining the team as an undrafted college free agent.
-With a sack, DE Emmanuel Ogbah would increase his season total to 6.5 sacks, third most for a Browns rookie in franchise history.
-The last time the Browns played a regular season game on a Saturday was December 24, 2011, when they lost to the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium by a score of 20-14.
-The last time these two teams was on October 4th, 2015 in San Diego, when the Chargers defeated the Browns by a final score of 30-27.
It was a back-and-forth game that saw a 13-13 tie at the half. With the Browns trailing 27-19 near the end of the fourth quarter, QB Josh McCown connected with TE Gary Barnidge for a 1-yard touchdown pass, and the two-point conversion to WR Taylor Gabriel tied things up at 27-27. QB Philip Rivers quickly took San Diego downfield for K Josh Lambo’s game-winning attempt from 39 yards out, and he missed it! However, the officials said that CB Tramon Williams was offsides (he was not, upon further review). Lambo tried for the win again from 34 yards out, and this time he connected.
