Interesting Stats / Notes
- QB Baker Mayfield - His 1,090 passing yards are the most by a Brown in their first four career starts.
- DE Myles Garrett - Garrett’s seven sacks are the most by a Brown through the first seven weeks of a season and his 14 career sacks are the fourth-most sacks by a Brown in their first two seasons.
- A rushing score by any Brown will give the team 10 on the year and will be the most by a Browns team through the first eight games of a season since 1974 (10).
- With another successful two-point conversion, the 2018 Browns would set the franchise record for most in a single season (five).
- Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley spent the previous six seasons in the same role with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Haley led the Steelers’ offensive efforts to three divisional championships and four playoff berths. He also helped guide multiple offensive players to Pro Bowl selections. In 2017, six Steelers on the offensive side of the ball made the Pro Bowl, a league best.

The Browns were down 21-7 in the fourth quarter, but defensive pressure and timely offense by Cleveland got a late tie. Zane Gonzalez game-winning field goal attempt in overtime was blocked, cementing the tie.
