First time 2 female coaches were on the sideline with a female official on the field
Nick Chubb rushed for 108 yards and two touchdowns to spur the Cleveland Browns to a 34-20 win over the visiting Washington Football Team on Sunday afternoon at First Energy Stadium.
Baker Mayfield was 16-of-23 passing with 156 yards and two touchdowns, and the Browns cashed in four Dwayne Haskins Jr. turnovers for 24 points to move to 2-1 for the first time since 2011. Cleveland will play next week with a record above .500 for the first time since Dec. 14, 2014, breaking a string of 84 straight weeks at or below .500.
The game marked the first time two female coaches were on the sideline with a female official on the field.
Jennifer King is on Washington’s staff, while Callie Brownson is the chief of staff for Cleveland. Sarah Thomas was the down judge.
Haskins, Young, Washington safety Landon Collins and defensive end Montez Sweat raised their fists during the national anthem.
Depleted 49ers still too much for Giants
The way the San Francisco 49ers played, missing quarterback Jimmy Garopollo and a slew of starters wasn’t an issue against the woeful and winless New York Giants.
Backup Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards and a touchdown and the Niners controlled the ball on offence, took it away on defence and had another easy day on the East Coast in a 36-9 win at MetLife Stadium Sunday.
