Getting the ball back at their own 11-yard line following a punt and the score tied at 3-3, the Browns found themselves with two minutes and 54 seconds left before halftime to take a lead over the Chicago Bears. Engineering an impressive two-minute drill, Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield did just that, capping a 12-play, 89-yard drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to tight end Austin Hooper to give the Browns a 10-3 lead with just 19 seconds remaining in the half.

Altogether, Mayfield finished the first half having completed 15 of his 24 pass attempts for 166 yards and 1 touchdown. Yet despite Cleveland's unimpressive offensive output, the Browns defense carried its weight, sacking Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields four times in the first half -- 2.5 of which were recorded by Myles Garrett.
