TAMPA, Fla. – The Browns shot themselves in the foot again in the third quarter, but they hung on to a 14-10 lead heading into the fourth quarter Sunday.
Tight end Evan Moore had catches of 47 and 16 yards as the Browns reached the 15-yard line. But Peyton Hillis lost a fumble and the Browns lost the chance to expand the lead. Hillis fumbled in the first half but recovered.
Rain was off and on in the quarter, and the cloud cover had to be a nice break for the players in the stifling heat.
Joshua Cribbs fumbled a punt return, but the Browns recovered.
Coach Eric Mangini hates bad ball security and must be furious. Especially after Jake Delhomme threw an interception late in the first half that cost the Browns at least seven points.
