Orchard Park, N.Y.- Phil Dawson saved the Browns from making history with another defensive collapse.
After blowing leads of 13-0 and 23-13, the Browns escaped with a 29-27 win over the Buffalo Bills on Dawson's career-long 56-yard field goal.
Dawson's fifth successful kick of the evening prevented the Browns from becoming the first NFL team in history to surrender leads of at least 13 points in three successive games. They blew a 14-point lead to Baltimore and one of 13 to Denver in their previous two games.
