The Cleveland Browns just lost their second game of the preseason to the Washington Commanders on Friday with a tight score of 17-15.
After a 68-minute delay due to lightning and rain, the Browns opened the game with most of their starters.
Quarterback Deshaun Watson successfully led the offense deep into the red zone.
Furthermore, he completed three pass attempts for 12 yards and brought the ball thrice for 20 yards.
However, the drive ended without any points since the Cleveland Browns couldn’t convert on a fourth-and-goal.
WR Elijah Moore also gave promising moments for the Browns, including catching a pass for 6 yards.
But Moore walked back to the locker room with a rib injury.
Fortunately, he received X-Rays in the locker room but the results came back negative.
The Browns scored the game’s first points early in the game, but the Commanders responded with two touchdowns and finished the halftime with a 14-2 lead.
Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson started the second half by leading the offense.
On his second attempt, he capped his play with a 7-yard touchdown pass to David Bell.
Under 2 minutes left, the Browns had a chance to tie when Kellen Mond connected with Mike Harley Jr.
After all, Mond’s pass on the play fell incomplete.
The Cleveland Browns will play the next match against the Eagles on Aug. 17 at Lincoln Financial Field.
