Browns 30, Chiefs 7

Browns still on roll

CLEVELAND — Rookie Travis Benjamin's electrifying 93-yard punt return touchdown in the second quarter helped the Browns win their third straight. The Chiefs had a draining week after Jovan Belcher's murder-suicide.

Cleveland continued a resurgence under second-year coach Pat Shurmur, whose future remains uncertain. The Browns, who opened 0-5, surpassed last season's win total and have their longest winning streak since 2009. It was Cleveland's largest margin of victory since beating Arizona 44-6 in 2003.

"It's been a long year," said linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, a former Seminole High standout. "At first, it was rocky. We were in a lot of close ballgames and we weren't able to finish, and now … we have something going right now."
