CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The story of the first half Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium was Brandon Weeden’s offense – and injuries.
The second half – a streaker.
The third quarter of the Browns’ 24-6 victory over the Detroit Lions came to a halt when a fan decided to jump the rail and run 90 yards across the field towards the Browns tunnel.
Pictures and video’s of his mad dash were caught on cell phone cameras around the stadium and spread like wildfire on social media – including one on YouTube taken from a fan sitting next to him as he jumped the rail.
Only one player, Detroit running back Joique Bell, knocked the man over twice before he got up and ran the rest of the way where security finally caught him.
“My technique was awesome,” Bell joked. “I didn’t really tackle him. I had a couple of knockdowns that might get me some more points in the special team’s room.”
It took 7 officials to subdue the man, using a swift kick to the groin to bring him down.

“That was crazy,” Browns tight end Jordon Cameron said. “I was thinking ‘oh my gosh.’ One of their guys I think hit him and then one of the security guards. I was like ‘what is going on?’”
This is one of many videos that quickly popped up on social media.
