The Dallas Cowboys came to Cleveland looking to win their seventh consecutive game for the first time since 2007.
So far so good, as the Cowboys led 21-10 at the half.
After giving a three points to the Browns on the opening drive of the game, thanks largely to a trick formation that resulted in a 44-yard pass from Cody Kessler to running Isaiah Crowell, the Cowboys let their dominance take over.
Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott directed a 10-play, 75-yard scoring drive on the ensuing possession. It was the sixth time in eight games that the Cowboys scored on their opening drive of the game.

Tight end Jason Witten, who caught his first touchdown pass of the season on the final play of last week’s 29-23 overtime victory against the Philadelphia Eagles, hauled in a 26-yard touchdown reception from Prescott.
A 10-yard touchdown run by Ezekiel Elliott made the score 14-3 in the second quarter and then Prescott notched his second touchdown pass of the game when he hit a wide open Cole Beasley from 6 yards out to up the lead to 21-3 with 1 minute, 50 second left in the second quarter.
The Browns showed some life on the final drive of the half, driving 80 yards on seven plays.
Kessler hit Terrell Pryor with a 12-yard touchdown pass to make it 21-10.
Prescott completed 12 of 15 passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns in the first half. Elliott rushed 12 times for 65 yards and a touchdown.
Prescott now has 11 touchdown passes on the season to pass Troy Aikman for the most touchdown passes by a rookie in team history.
Witten had five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown.
Again, the Cowboys are seeking their first seven-game winning streak since they went 13-3 in 2007.
It would also mark the first time in franchise that Dallas has started the season 0-1 and gone on to win the next seven games.
The Cowboys came into the game with four wins in the past five match-ups against the Browns, including three consecutive wins.
