Browns D/ST allows 31 points in Week 18

The Browns D/ST allowed 31 points while picking up three sacks and forcing one turnover in a 31-14 loss to the Bengals in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact

Cleveland rested several key players on defense so it is hard to take much away from their performance against the Bengals. They will now prepare to face off against the Texans on the road in next week's playoff game.

Fantasy Impact

Cleveland's defense came to play in the Thursday night win. They got a defensive touchdown on a 30-yard interception return by Ronnie Hickman in the first quarter while Myles Garrett and Alex Wright provided the sacks.

Browns D/ST allows 11 points in Week 15 victory

The Cleveland Browns D/ST allowed just 11 points and 236 yards while sacking Justin Fields three times and intercepting him twice in a Week 15 victory to improve to 9-5.

Fantasy Impact

Cleveland's defense had been a bit off in recent weeks, particularly against the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Rams, but in Week 14 they returned to form. Even when they have given up high point numbers, Cleveland's defense has been able to deliver in fantasy through sacks, interceptions and fumble recoveries. In Week 15, they put it all together, allowing just 11 points defensively. A unit with 22 forced turnovers and 41 sacks travels to Houston next to face off against either the potential Offensive Rookie of the Year or, if he can't go due to his concussion, a backup QB.

Browns D/ST records three interceptions in Week 14

The Browns D/ST allowed 27 points on 293 total yards with four sacks, three interceptions and one fumble recovery on Sunday against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Cleveland was able to limit Jacksonville to just seven points in the first half with Trevor Lawrence playing on a high-ankle sprain. The Jaguars' put together a comeback in the fourth quarter, finding the end zone twice to bring the game to within one score. The Browns are a decent streaming option next week against the Bears.
