This was the first meeting between the two teams in four seasons.
The Browns leads the all-time series 28-22-2. The win by the Browns snapped a two-game losing streak in the series.
Before Sunday’s game, the Browns last win in this series came in a 35-14 win on October 13, 2008.
With the win, the Browns improved to 10-4 on the season. They’re looking at potentially their first playoff season since the 2002 season.
“It’s something that until I got into the league my rookie year that I didn’t know how hard it was to win in the league,” said Mayfield, who’s in his third season. “It’s something to be proud of, but the best part is that everybody in there is like, ‘Yeah, 10 wins but we’re on to the next one.’ Notch on the belt and move on. We’re not done yet.
“And that’s the best part of this team.”
Giants first-year head coach Joe Judge was asked about going for a critical fourth-and-1 from the five yard line.
“Look, I’m not afraid to call things aggressively,” Judge said. “I’m not afraid. I think we have a good scheme in the kicking game to call a fake. I’m not afraid to run the ball fourth-and-1.”
Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield went 27 of 32 for 297 yards. He had two touchdown passes.
“I thought Baker was outstanding tonight,” Browns first-year head coach Kevin Stefanski said. “He was dialed in. It’s really what I expect from him and what he expects from himself. It’s how he practices, but I really thought he was sharp.”
Nick Chubb had 15 carries for 50 yards and a touchdown. Rashard Higgins had four receptions for 76 yards.
Giants quarterback Colt McCoy went 19 of 31 for 221 yards.
Alfred Morris had seven carries for 39 yards. Darius Slayton had four receptions for 74 yards.
Chubb scored a rushing touchdown for the Browns. Jarvis Landry and Austin Hooper caught touchdown receptions.
Following Landry’s touchdown, Cody Parkey missed an extra point.
Giants kicker Graham Gano made two field goals.
