CLEVELAND — Kareem Hunt hurdled Philadelphia’s Jalen Mills on a touchdown run, Olivier Vernon stepped up with star Myles Garrett out with COVID-19 by getting three sacks and a safety and the Cleveland Browns stayed firmly in the playoff picture with a wet 22-17 win over the Eagles. 

Hunt’s leaping 5-yard score came shortly after a dazzling 54-yard run by Nick Chubb as the Browns (7-3) finally found traction in their running game in a constant downpour. 

Cleveland also got a 50-yard interception return for a TD in the first half by linebacker Sione Takitaki. 

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz threw two interceptions and was sacked four times.
