Dallas got the ball back quickly when safety Gerald Sensabaugh stuffed Richardson a yard short of a first down in the open field, and the subsequent drive to Bryant’s touchdown included two more of the seven penalties on Cleveland’s secondary. The Browns had 12 penalties for 129 yards.
‘‘I understand that we may have had calls in our secondary that went against us,’’ Brown said. ‘‘But I think their secondary had no calls. So you’re telling me they were playing clean? I think you have to call it both ways.’’
NOTES: Richardson fell just short of becoming the first Browns rookie with three straight 100-yard games. He finished with 95 yards rushing, and added 49 yards receiving. ... The Cowboys are 125-125 in the regular season since 1997. ... Browns K Phil Dawson, who grew up in the Dallas area, extended the NFL’s longest active field goal streak to 25 by hitting from 51 and 47 yards. He’s 19 of 19 this year. ... Browns WR Josh Cooper didn’t return after injuring a knee in the second quarter. ... CB Buster Skine, who started in place of Joe Haden, sustained a concussion on a play when safety T.J. Ward was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct on a hit on Cowboys WR Kevin Ogletree.
