Man what a great Game, GO BROWNIES.

Browns 20, Bears 10

CLEVELAND (AP) – In a matter of seconds, Trent Dilfer passed a career milestone and turned another dull Sunday into a rare, exciting home win for the Cleveland Browns.

Dilfer connected with wide receiver Antonio Bryant for two touchdowns in a 38-second span late in the fourth quarter as Cleveland rallied to a 20-10 victory over the sputtering Chicago Bears.

With the Browns (2-2) trailing 10-6, Dilfer, making his 100th career start, hit Bryant for a 33-yard TD with 3:02 left. The scoring strike was also the 33-year-old Dilfer’s 100th career TD pass, and five plays later, he got No. 101.

After Bears rookie quarterback Kyle Orton’s fumble was recovered by Chris Crocker, Dilfer found Bryant on the same route in the left corner, this time a 28-yard TD that put the Browns up by 10 points with 2:24 remaining.

For nearly 57 minutes, the Browns, who were without rookie wide receiver Braylon Edwards, appeared headed toward another tough loss at home. Cleveland is just 15-35 at Browns Stadium since returning to the league as an expansion team in 1999.

For being a rebuilding year, and even with the injuries so far, the Browns don’t look half bad, but maybe that’s because I look at the world through brown and orange colored glasses.
