For the second time this season, the Cleveland Browns have won a game on a last-second field goal.
After Atlanta took a one-point lead with a field goal with 44 seconds to play, Browns kicker Billy Cundiff booted a 37-yard game-winning kick as time expired to secure a 26-24 win over the host Falcons.
Atlanta running back Steven Jackson drew his team to within two points of the Browns, 23-21, with a one-yard touchdown run at the 9:31 mark of the fourth quarter. Jackson capped off a 14-play, 80-yard drive engineered by quarterback Matt Ryan.
Browns rookie running back Isaiah Crowell scored a touchdown with 46 seconds to play in the third quarter, and gave his team a 23-14 lead over the Falcons.
On second-and-seven from Atlanta’s 26-yard line, Crowell took a pitch from quarterback Brian Hoyer, and then, rumbled and stumbled his way into the end zone after cutting inside rather than heading to the outside of the right tackle.
Crowell’s second touchdown run of the day capped off a nine-play, 70-yard drive that took nearly five minutes off the third-quarter clock.
