Dawson more 50s: Kicker Phil Dawson kicked two more field goals of 50 or more yards (50 and 51). He now has six field goals of 50 yards or more this season, tied for third all-time in a single season. He's made five field goals of 50 or more yards in the last three games.
Sunday was Dawson's third consecutive game with at least one field goal of 50 yards or longer, which ties career-best stretch set in 2008 when he connected on field goals from 54, 52, and 56 yards in consecutive contests in games 8-10.
Maybe Dawson was showing off for former President George H.W. Bush, who was an honorary captain met with Dawson before the game.
TERRY PLUTO’S SCRIBBLES
Scribbles in my notebook after the Browns’ 30-12 loss at Houston.
Something else positive: Phil Dawson is the MVP of the first half with 12-of-12 on field goals not blocked. He is a career best 6-of-6 from at least 50 yards.
