Browns Top 49ers in Muddy Season Finale

Dec. 15, 1962 - Fullback Jimmy Brown sloshed through the mud to score both Cleveland touchdowns today, providing the Browns with a 13-10 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers in their NFL season finale. Brown went over on runs of 5 and 12 yards for the Browns’ scores in this nationally televised battle in the slime of Kezar Stadium before 35,274 rain-soaked fans. As weather and field conditions worsened in the second half, neither team scored. Brown missed his bid to gain 1,000 yards for a fifth straight season, falling 4 yards short. His longest carry was a drive up the middle for 30.
