Josh McCown etches names in Browns’ record book
Browns quarterback Josh McCown set a franchise record for the most yards in a regular season game in Sunday’s 33-30 overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens.
McCown’s 457 passing yards eclipsed Brian Sipe’s previous mark of 444 yards set in 1981. McCown completed 36 of 51 passes for two touchdowns. Bernie Kosar’s 489 yards in playoff win over the Jets in January 1987 still represents the most yards ever in one game by Browns quarterback.
Here are the top 10 performances in franchise history. McCown’s performance also knocked Brandon Weeden’s 370-yard performance from 2013 out of the top 10.
