CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns struggled to find rushing yardage over the first three quarters of play against the Carolina Panthers, but that was not the case on a carryover drive from the third period into the fourth at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

And wide receiver Jarvis Landry proved to be a catalyst to the running game, as he broke free for a 51-yard gain on a misdirection play that set up the Browns for the go-ahead score against the Panthers.

On third-and-two, Mayfield faked a handoff to wide receiver Breshad Perriman, who was going from left to right across the formation, and then, slipped the ball to Landry in the middle of the field, and the veteran pass catcher moved the ball down the field in short order.

After an initial burst of speed through a gap at the line of scrimmage, Landry cut across the field and outraced several Carolina defenders before being chased down from behind by multi-time Pro Bowl linebacker Luke Kuechly.
