There have been a lot of funky things we’ve seen this season, but we can add this play to the list. The Cleveland Browns tried the flea flicker play, and more importantly, scored on it.
Jason Campbell got the ball after the flea flick, and tossed it down field to Josh Gordon who eventually brought it in the end zone for the touchdown. You can see the GIF of the 39 yard score here,
The Browns came within six points of the unbeaten Chiefs with less tan three minutes in the half. However, Kansas City is unbeaten for a reason. They just took a larger lead with another score with a little over a minute left in the second quarter. Quarterback Alex Smith threw a 38 yard pass to wide receiver Dexter McCluster for a touchdown,bringing the score of the game to 20-7.
Cleveland might have to think of some more inventive ideas to score on the Chiefs, as normal passes and runs might not work. Kansas City’s defense has been solid all season, but a little bit of trickery could bode well for the Browns. Who knows, maybe all of their trickery will be rewarded with a treat as we head to Halloween.
UPDATE: The Browns kicked a 44 yard field goal to finish the half down by ten instead of thirteen.
