Browns lead after three

The Browns led the Packers 24-17 after three quarters Saturday night.

Once the starters are done for the night the rest of a preseason game is a stage for second and third line players to jump out.

Linebacker Titus Brown helped himself by making two stops on running plays to hold the Packers to a field goal in the second quarter, preserving a 14-10 Browns lead. With the score 17-17 in the third quarter, Brown scooped up a fumble on a strip forced by undrafted rookie Brian Smith and returned it 43 yards for a touchdown.

Jordan Norwood, trying to wedge his way into the  wide receiver group, showed he can catch the ball and excel on special teams. He returned the Packers opening punt 22 yards in the first quarter. He caught three passes for 36 yards in the third quarter with Seneca Wallace at quarterback.

Brian Sanford, trying to grab a spot on the Browns defensive line, sacked Packers third quarterback Graham Harrell with about 12 minutes left.
