Dawson Does it Again




January 1, 2012

From Don Delco's "Browns can't capitalize on Steelers' mistakes"


DAWSON DOES IT AGAIN: For the fourth time this season, all the points in one game were off the right foot of Phil Dawson.

Dawson kicked a 26-, 45- and 49-yarder in the swirling winds at Cleveland Browns Stadium.


"Today was a really tough day," Dawson said. "The wind, the temperature, the wet and the field, it was the perfect storm. You have to either use (the weather) to your advantage or let it sink you. I had to make a decision several years ago to figure out how to make it my advantage and kick well here."

Dawson finished the season 24-for-29 on field goals, 20-for-20 on extra points and, most notably, 7-for-8 from more than 50 yards.

"I gave my heart and soul to this team this year," Dawson said. "I feel pretty good about it."

Entering this season, Dawson was given the Browns' franchise tag and he signed a one-year tender for about $3.25 million. He will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
