*Denotes Browns rookie record

  • Rookie wide receiver Josh Gordon set career highs in receptions (6) and receiving yards (116) while adding a 44-yard touchdown. Gordon is the first Brown to record a 100-yard receiving performance since Greg Little totaled 131 yards as a rookie at Arizona on December 18, 2012. All five of Gordon's receiving touchdowns this season have been from 20 yards or longer. He is the first Browns rookie to record five or more receiving touchdowns since Andre' Davis had six in 2002. Gordon is the first Browns player to record five or more receiving touchdowns in a single-season since 2007 when tight end Kellen Winslow (5) and wide receiver Braylon Edwards (16) accomplished the feat.
  • Rookie running back Trent Richardson rushed for 72 yards on 20 carries with one touchdown. His seven rushing touchdowns this season are tied for the second-most by a Browns rookie.
