When Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon caught this 18-yard touchdown pass from DeShone Kizer in the first quarter yesterday, it not only gave Cleveland a 7-7 tie with Green Bay, but it marked the first time Gordon had caught a TD pass since week 15 of the 2013 season.
Gordon returned a week ago from a league suspension. Before last week's game in Los Angeles against the Chargers, Gordon had not played since Week 16 of the 2014 season.
Incidentally that would be 1,456 days since Gordon’s last score which—if you’re a Cleveland fan—isn’t saying much considering the in that nearly 1500 days since the Browns have only won 11 football games in that span.
And as much as it looked like 2013 when he scored the TD, it looked like every other Sunday in Cleveland by the end of the game as the Browns blew a 21-7 halftime lead allowing the packers to score a game tying TD with just 17 seconds left on a Brett Hundley TD pass to Davante.
And then—in typical Browns fashion—threw an interception three plays into overtime at their own 42.
Six plays later, Adams caught another TD pass to win the game 27-21 making it 1,463 days before the Browns can hope for that 12th win… although the Eagles will be going for their 12th won of the season.
