Running back Trent Richardson put the Cleveland Browns in front of the visiting San Diego Chargers, 7-0, with a 26-yard touchdown run at the 4:17 mark of the first quarter of play from Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Richardson took a handoff from quarterback Brandon Weeden on second-and-10 from the 26 and ran to the right of the formation. After getting through the initial wave of defenders, with help from right guard Shawn Lauvao, Richardson scampered the final 20 yards for his fifth rushing touchdown of the season.
Two plays before the touchdown, the Browns converted a fourth-and-one from San Diego’s 28-yard line when Weeden ducked behind the right side of the offensive line for a two-yard gain.
After winning the toss and electing to defer, the Browns earned a defensive stop when San Diego running back Jackie Battle was stopped by Cleveland safety T.J. Ward for no gain on a fourth-and-one from the Browns’ 30-yard line.
