DENVER — Cleveland Browns kicker Phil Dawson converted a 53-yard field goal and cut the Denver Broncos’ lead to 14-6 with 11:09 remaining in the third quarter of play from Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Dawson’s 53-yard make was his longest of the season and the sixth from at least 50 yards this year. Since the start of the 2011 season, Dawson has converted 12 field goals of at least 50 yards.

Earlier in the nine-play, 45-yard drive, Trent Richardson passed Pro Football Hall of Famer, Jim Brown, for the most rushing yards by a rookie in Browns history. Richardson broke the record, which was set in 1957, with a nine-yard run.
