The Redskins need to pick it up in the second half to avoid losing to the Browns and missing a big opportunity to gain ground in the NFC playoff race.

The Washington Redskins trail the Cleveland Browns, 14-10, at halftime of their Week 15 meeting at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

The Redskins held a brief 10-7 lead after Kai Forbath's 44-yard field goal with less than six minutes remaining in the second quarter. However, the Browns answered by embarking on a nine-play, 75-yard drive that resulted in a 1-yard touchdown run by Trent Richardson, his second score of the day.

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins struggled mightily at the beginning of the game, throwing incomplete passes in five of his first six attempts, while also tossing a key pick that directly resulted in Richardson's first touchdown. However, Cousins connected with Leonard Hankerson on a 54-yard touchdown strike to even up the game, and settled in a bit after that, although he's had a penchant for low throws throughout the day.

Cousins completed 11-of-19 passes for 146 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the half. His counterpart, fellow rookie Brandon Weeden, finished the half 13-of-21 for 88 yards and a pick.
