Scoring Summary

The Bears took a 10-7 lead to the locker room, but Cleveland scored 17 unanswered points in the second half to seal the victory.

FIRST QUARTER: WR Andre Davis 37-yard touchdown reception from QB Jeff Garcia at 6:40. The Browns picked on CB Todd McMillon throughout the drive. Garcia also hit Quincy Morgan for a 16-yard completion. Nathan Vasher's defensive holding penalty gave Cleveland a first down after they failed to convert on 3rd and 13. Vasher did force a fumble on a Kellen Winslow reception, but the Browns recovered and went on to score on the next play. PAT by Phil Dawson is good. Drive 11 plays, 80 yards, in 3:44. Browns 7, Bears 0.

FIRST QUARTER: K Paul Edinger 44-yard field goal at 2:34. Thanks to an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Quincy Morgan's touchdown the Bears started near midfield. QB Rex Grossman hit TE Desmond Clark in stride for a 15-yard catch and run. The Bears were going to attempt a 50-yard field by Edinger, but a hard snap count drew Cleveland offside giving the offense a fresh set of downs. David Terrell nearly made a great catch along the sideline, but couldn't get two feet in bounds. A false start and sack pushed the Bears outside of the red zone and Edinger came on for his seventh field goal of the preseason. Drive: 10 plays, 27 yards, in 4:02. Browns 7, Bears 3.

SECOND QUARTER: RB Adrian Peterson one-yard touchdown run at 0:37. Peterson carried eight times for 31 yards on the possession. Third string QB Craig Krenzel completed 2-of-3 for 33 yards. Peterson took the ball the final nine yards on three carries and reached the end zone for the third time in the preseason. PAT by Edinger is good. Drive: 11 plays, 69 yards, in 5:38. Bears 10, Browns 7.

THIRD QUARTER: K Phil Dawson 33-yard field goal at 0:54. The first turnover by the offense in the preseason gave Cleveland the ball deep in Chicago territory. A reverse from Brock Forsey to Ahmad Merritt resulted in a fumble recovered by Browns Felipe Claybrooks. A 17-yard completion from QB Luke McCown to Darnell Sanders is the only play the defense allowed. Cleveland had to settle for three points. Drive: 5 plays, 17 yards, in 2:02. Bears 10, Browns 10.

FOURTH QUARTER: WR Andre King 4-yard touchdown reception from Luke McCown. A sack by DE Israel Idonije was negated because of a facemask penalty. McCown hit King for a 27-yard completion to give the Browns first and goal. McCown's feet helped him buy enough time to find King on the sideline for go-ahead score. PAT by Derek Schorejs is good. Drive: 9 plays, 62 yards, in 5:52. Browns 17, Bears 10.

FOURTH QUARTER: WR Richard Alston 35-yard TD reception from McCown. Following the previous touchdown an illegal block penalty on Tommie Harris during the kickoff pined the Bears at their 10-yard line. A three and out was followed by a 16-yard punt return by Alston. On fourth and 4 Butch Davis it was beyond his kickers field goal range and a punt could go for a touchback, so Cleveland went for the first down. McCown hit Alston over the middle and the receiver ran the final 20 yards for the score. PAT Schorejs is good. Drive: 4 plays, 41 yards, in 1:33. Browns 24, Bears 10.
